Bruno Tonioli has been accused of being ‘drunk’ after a string of bizarre incidents on tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing .
The flamboyant Italian’s behaviour became increasingly strange, leading viewers to question whether he was intoxicated.
Bruno’s odd antics began when he fell of his chair , then he repeatedly started grabbing terrified Shirley Ballas .
He then started stripping off while running over to kiss Steps singer Faye Tozer.
Craig Revel Horwood, who had a few run ins with his fellow judge over the evening, even joked that ‘Bruno’s pills were finally kicking in’.
While critiquing Paralympian Lauren Steadman, he vigorously grabbed a shocked Shirely.
Waiving his hands around, he said: "Don’t be afraid to sell, sell, sell. Sell the dancing, sell the character.
"When you go…," he added, before grabbing hold of worried Shirley.
Realising he had worried her, Bruno added: "Sorry love."
Then when speaking to actor Charles Venn he grabbed Shirley yet again.
"The side to side moment when you bring her to you in your arms," he said before clutching hold of her.
Tess Daly told him to "put her down", while Craig added: "I am so pleased I am not sitting next to Bruno Tonioli."
His final shock moment came after Steps star Faye had finished her Grease inspired performance.
While taking off his jacket, Bruno said: "And I’m losing control."
He then ran over to kiss Faye with his jacket half off.
Craig said: "I think Bruno’s pills have finally kicked in darling
While Claudia added: "I can’ get enough of Bruno this evening."
Concerned viewers took to Twitter after noticing Bruno’s bizarre behaviour.
One viewer said: "Bruno is clearly concussed after his chair fall"
Another added: "I’m just putting it out there… but is bruno a bit sploshed? Was off dancing on and falling off chairs? Seeks a bit squinty and … off?"
A third said: "I think someone slipped something into Bruno’s drink tonight, he’s hilarious"
This came after Bruno angered viewers after a ridiculous fall from his chair.
There were gasps from the audience and his fellow judges when Bruno took a tumble to the floor during Craig’s critique of Dr Ranj Singh.
Time seemed to stand still as the flamboyant Italian judge toppled off his seat in slow motion.
Strictly viewers accused Bruno of ‘showing off’ and orchestrating the hilarious moment to get attention.
