While sitting on the couch next to former Strictly contestant Zara McDermott, Bruno appeared on The One Show last night (April 18) to promote the new series of BGT.

While showing a clip of the upcoming series, Bruno expressed it is “so exciting”.

However, while many are ready to tune into the launch of this year’s BGT on Saturday (April 20), viewers couldn’t help but be distracted by Bruno’s appearance during the interview.

Wearing a semi-sheer white shirt tucked into his trousers, fans picked up on Bruno’s really dark tan.
