Bruno Tonioli is in a secret relationship with a male model.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge has reportedly been romancing 29-year-old model Matt Law and pals say the relationship has "put the smile back on his face".
The friend said: "Bruno is very happy. He hasn't had anyone special on his life for ten years and Matt has put the smile back on his face. Right now they're just having a lot of fun and not thinking about the future because there's a huge age difference. But Matt and him don't stop laughing - they get on so well. Everyone is really happy for them.
"For Bruno it was lust at first sight but there's a lot of hope it could develop into something more serious. Matt was dating someone else but he's become single quite recently, allowing things to develop."
Bruno jets back over to the US for 'Dancing With The Stars' every week before returning back to the UK at the weekend for 'Strictly Come Dancing' and Matt - who Bruno met during a holiday in Mykonos over the summer - is currently staying at Bruno's Los Angeles apartment so they can spend time together when he's in the US.
The insider added to The Sun newspaper: "He's been staying at Bruno's LA apartment and was waiting for Bruno as soon as he got off the plane on Monday night. He's planning to go and watch him judge on 'Dancing With The Stars' as well, which is a sign that Bruno is introducing him to people close to him."
Bruno fuelled speculation of a romance with Matt when the pair were spotted out to dinner together last month.
