The choreographer debuted his new look at the BAFTA Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards on Friday, appearing on the first-ever virtual show.
He wore silver locks when joining fellow judges Craig Revel-Horwood, Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse, as well as co-hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman to accept the show’s Entertainment Program award.
Bruno appeared from his home in LA to accept the award, amid reports that he will not be appearing in the upcoming series due to travel issues surrounding the coronavirus crisis.
It is well known that choreographer Bruno will not appear in the 2020 Strictly series due to his work obligations with his American counterpart Dancing with the Stars.

Right now, Bruno is splitting his time in shows in both the UK and US, but due to travel restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic, it doesn’t seem likely that he will be able to appear on Strictly this year.
Bosses are said to be looking for a replacement for the star, while other reports suggest the show would continue with just three judges – Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse and Craig Revel Horwood.
Former Strictly Come Dancing star Ian Waite didn’t praise Judge Bruno, however, for calling him “ entertainment value but nothing else. ”

Speaking during a performance on Fubar Radio’s Access All Areas, the dancer, 49, implied that the flamboyant Italian would not be missed by speculation that he won’t be in the upcoming series.
Ian suggested Bruno wouldn’t be missed if he didn’t show up and told hosts Stephen Leng and Bobby Norris that he is the panel’s least ‘technical’.
When asked if Bruno would be missed on the show, the Latin American dance expert paused for an awkward silence before replying, ‘Do you want the honest truth? I love Bruno for its entertainment value, but nothing else. ‘
He then went on to criticize Bruno ‘s ability and suggested that the judge make every effort to give a performance on the panel.
He added, “He doesn’t really say anything technical. He’s not really the panel technician. It’s like, how many arms can I have lying around and how expressive can I be? ‘
Meanwhile, Ian also discussed the professional dancers on the show, accusing some of being overly sensitive when it comes to criticism.
Ian expressed his feelings and commented, “There are some pros who don’t want you to say anything to them. But they can fill it! ‘

However, when pushed to mention names, the dancer remained with closed lips and simply replied, “Most of them are gone now!”
Meanwhile, Ian was much more in favor of the possibility that the BBC show introduced not one but two same-sex couples.
He said enthusiastically, “I think it’s a brilliant idea. Why not! In this day and age we need to mix it up much more and it will make it much more acceptable for people to see it. ‘
Earlier this month, it was reported that this year’s Strictly will only last nine weeks, shifting the launch date back to October so bosses can pre-record elements during the current social distance climate.

Due to the reduced series run, bosses have been claimed to have fewer celebrities in the lineup, with the show’s Halloween and Blackpool specials at two and four weeks on the schedule.
A source said The sun: ‘BBC bosses do everything they can to ensure that the public is as strict and safe as possible.
‘Because of a strongly shortened schedule, they have much longer time to pre-include certain segments in order to minimize the risk. It does mean it will start much later in the year and will end very close to Christmas with the final currently scheduled for December 19. ‘
Stern bosses have also previously revealed that stars are in ‘pair bubbles’ during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Delayed: Due to the smaller series, it was claimed that bosses will have fewer celebrities in the lineup, which is expected to be announced in late summer
