The Strictly Come Dancing judge was forced to miss filming on Saturday, due to “a very busy work schedule”.

However, Bruno Tonioli was pictured just two days after the show had been filmed, smoking with friends outside of a nightclub in LA.

The BBC star had dressed up for the evening in a tight white shirt and slim-fitting beige chinos.

He completed his ensemble with a pair of smart brown chelsea boots.

At one point, Bruno appeared to be struggling with the belt on his trousers and was snapped rearranging his waistline as he held a cigarette in his mouth.

For the first time in 15 years, the TV star was absent from the Strictly Come Dancing panel as the remaining celebrities performed their latest routines.

Confirming that prior work commitments would cause Bruno to leave the show for one weekend, a spokesperson for Strictly said: “As was always the plan, Bruno Tonioli is not on the judging panel this weekend due to a very busy work schedule.”

Insisting that normal service will resume the following week, they added to The Sun: “He will be back as normal for our Halloween special and the rest of the series.”

However, fellow judge Craig Revel-Horwood did try to impersonate Bruno in his absence.

He joked to Giovanni Bernice and Debbie McGee: “I feel the need to channel Bruno at this point. Giovanni, darling, Debbie, darling, you were sensational. I love, love, love it!”

Craig then got up with elaborate arm movements as he fanned over Shirley and Darcey. 

However, the judge got a little carried away as he tried to sit back down and missed his chair – falling to the ground.
