Britain's Got Talent's Bruno Tonioli hits Golden Buzzer a second timeMay 15, 2023
Britain’s Got Talent’s Bruno Tonioli heeds ‘stark warning’ from Simon Cowell after pressing Golden Buzzer for SECOND time as he sends singer Gamal John through to the semi-finals
Bruno Tonioli found himself in a spot of bother as he pressed his Britain’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer for the second time this series during Sunday’s episode of the show.
Blues singer Gamal John left Bruno, 67, and his fellow judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon stunned after his impressive audition, leaving the panel open-mouthed while the theatre audience gave the hopeful a standing ovation.
With the crowd screaming for one of the judges to press their Golden Buzzer, leaving Alesha saying she wished she had another buzzer to press while hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly popped their heads out from the wings to insist they had already used their’s up too.
However, former Strictly Come Dancing panellist Bruno took it upon himself to press his once more following Gamal’s rendition of James Brown’s It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World despite already having done so earlier in the series.
While the ‘X’ on the front of the desk where Bruno sat turned gold, no confetti rained down from the ceiling, with Simon holding his head in his hands and Amanda telling Bruno: ‘You only get one!’

‘We are about to get fired,’ Simon told Gamal. ‘Having said that, Bruno is a new judge and if you give something, you can’t take it away. You know what, genuinely, I think all of us are thinking the same thing.’
Ant and Dec then ran onto the stage with confetti cannons to ensure Gamal got the Golden Buzzer treatment, with the metallic paper raining down over his head as he hugged his son who had watched him audition.
It comes after head judge Simon Cowell revealed fellow judge Bruno Tonioli was ‘mortified’ after making a blunder with his golden buzzer in an earlier episode of this series premiere of Britain’s Got Talent.
Twinkle-toed star Bruno made the mishap after he excitedly pressed his golden buzzer for Ugandan dance act Ghetto Kids before they’d were finished their performance.
The judges are meant to wait until the end of the act to decide if they want to use the special buzzer but Bruno got overexcited sending the episode into chaos.
Reflecting on the hilarious moment music mogul Simon, 63, told MailOnline exclusively: ‘Well, that was pretty quick! It was the second or third day.
‘I was laughing my head off thinking, ‘You definitely haven’t watched the show, have you?’ And then I thought, ‘Actually, this is brilliant because it has never happened before.’
‘And the act didn’t seem to care. They were happy. I was happy for the group because they really did deserve it.

‘And just looking at Bruno’s face, he was happy. Then when someone ran up to him and said, ‘Well, you’re supposed to do it at the end,’ he was mortified! I said, ‘It doesn’t matter, Bruno. You just gave them the Golden Buzzer. Who cares?’
Bruno also chatted about the fiasco saying: ‘I was watching them thinking, ‘Actually, this is genius’. And I just had to press the golden buzzer. Now, I hold my hands up, I realise now I was supposed to wait until after they’d performed to press it! I just felt it in my bones and went for it!
‘Simon was hysterically laughing. Honestly, I had no idea. Nobody really ever explained that process to me. All I knew was I had a golden buzzer, but they never told me when I was supposed to press it!’ It all descended into chaos as Bruno pressed his golden buzzer halfway through the act’s performance.
Britain’s Got Talent continues next Saturday on ITV at 8pm.
