Fearing travel restrictions, Bruno wants to avoid the potential uncertainty of flying between the US and the UK.

The judge has said he will prioritise his role on the US version of Strictly, Dancing with the Stars.

As a result, the Strictly judging panel will be reduced to three, with Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse still likely to take their seats.

However, Craig has said Strictly may work around Bruno's absence with guest judges.

He told the Daily Star: "They might throw guest judges in for fun.

"Then when everything’s back to normal, Bruno can make his triumphant return!"

Entertainment Daily has contacted the BBC for comment on Craig's suggestion.
