"The shouting, the moving around, the excitability... far-removed from my real personality"
on 8 October 2016
As a regular Strictly Come Dancing watcher - a programme which in my view is hugely enhanced by the charismatic judge Bruno Tonioli - I was intrigued to find out his life story and how he came to make a career in dance.
This autobiography is not great literature, but is an entertaining and informative read, taking us from Tonioli's decidedly un-showbiz origins as son of a working class family in N Italy Innate ability, hard work and a certain amount of luck got him into the theatre and eventually into choreography, working with the big names, until Strictly erupted onto the British (and American) screens...
The reader hears the author's voice throughout the book, with'darlings' and 'flippin's' peppering the text.
A good light read if you're a Strictly fan.
