Bruno Tonioli was reportedly "told off" after his first day of 'Britain's Got Talent' auditions.

The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge has swapped the ballroom competition for Simon Cowell's ITV talent show and has replaced David Walliams on the panel alongside Simon, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.

As reported by The Sun, Alesha, 44, had to tell Bruno to sit down during the show and even pushed him back into his seat.

It won't come as any surprise to 'Strictly' viewers, with the 67-year-old star well known for his over the top nature.

It's said Alesha and Amanda also warned him about being too critical of the hopefuls in the auditions.

He also hit his golden buzz before an act had even finished their performance, while the report adds that Simon, 63, pressed his own buzzer after some convincing from Bruno.

Bruno told the audience: "I’ve had so much fun, I’ve already been told off. I’m loving it!"

He added: "Thank you very much. I am thrilled to be here."

Earlier this week, he was confirmed to be part of the panel folowing' David's departure.

He said in a statement: "Here we are, ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. I am so excited. It’s my first show, I have no idea what’s going to happen, but I’m sure it’s going to be brilliant.”

His new job was also revealed during clips of the taping of the first auditions for the new series of ‘BGT’.

Hosts Ant and Dec welcomed Bruno into the London Palladium auditorium alongside fellow judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.

A clip of the taping posted on Twitter saw Dec telling fans: “Please give a huge London Palladium welcome to your four judges for this afternoon. They are Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli!”

Ant added: “First of all, before we get underway, can we say a massive welcome to Bruno!”
