Britain's Got Talent's newest judge Bruno Tonioli has not been too happy with his new co-workers.
The Strictly Come Dancing favourite has joined the panel to find Britain's next big talent alongside Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden after replacing David Walliams.

But while he came prepared to give his thoughts and feelings on the acts, he didn't prepare for the pranks and challenges he would face with the fellow judges.
Speaking at the Together for Short Lives Ball in London, Bruno told Daily Star that although it's been a blast taking part in the show, he wasn't ready for the pranks they pulled on him.
He said: "I didn’t know they were doing pranks. I nearly killed them I was furious.
"They did a prank on me that I really wasn’t expecting I had no idea what was going on, I really thought it was for real, I was unaware. If I’m back I’m telling you I’ll get revenge."
Luckily, he hasn't held a grudge and will continue to work alongside his judges – but with a vengeance.
Speaking of his new role, Bruno added: "I can honestly say I had such a good time, we had a blast and it was destiny for me to be on the show.
"There’s more than a few moments where I went on the stage, things have happened. I got up out of my chair a few times because the talent we’ve seen is remarkable and it is just a natural reaction, some things even made me cry, these people are passionate about the craft and they work really hard."
Bruno said for him he needs to stand up and reach out, adding: "It happens naturally. It's me, it's the way I do things."
His Britain's Got Talent debut comes after comedian David Walliams left the judging panel after 10 years on the show.
He issued a public apology in November for making "disrespectful comments" about contestants during filming for the show.
In a statement, he said: "These were private conversations and – like most conversations with friends – were never intended to be shared. Nevertheless, I am sorry."
