During his appearance on Celebrity Juice, the sarcastic panelist appeared to reveal his dislike of Liam Payne's baby mama.

The video makes for uncomfortable viewing.

During Keith's attempt, he boasted how "everything is amazing".

Bruno then replied: "Who's that f*cking b*tch?"

Fearne later guessed correctly, answering that Keith was doing an impression of her close friend and co-star Holly Willoughby.

Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli is set to miss his first show in 15 years this weekend due to other work commitments.

This will be the first time that the panelling foursome have been a judge down, and with no plan to replace Bruno in his absence, this leaves the remaining judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcy Bussell in charge.

"The producers will have to muddle through with just Shirley, Darcey and Craig". The judging panel stalwart reportedly scheduled this break before the series began, citing a "very busy work schedule".

It's been confirmed that our fave judge - (don't tell the others) - will be absent from the judging panel due to a "prior work commitment".

As well as his role on Strictly Come Dancing, Tonioli is involved in its United States counterpart Dancing with the Stars.

Taking a stab at a guess Bruno, who looked as though he couldn't remember the name he wanted, shouted: "F***ing b****!"

Looking nervous about the upcoming performance, Ruth took to social media last night to share her progress with fans.

It will be a much quieter judging panel this weekend as Bruno Tonioli is set to miss his first ever Strictly Come Dancing show.

He will return next weekend for the Halloween special and will be on the show for the rest of the series.
