Brian Conley made the 'Strictly Come Dancing' judges cry with laughter after he went on a jokey outburst in Sunday (22.10.17) night's show
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' judges were "crying with laughter" when Brian Conley went on a light-hearted rant after he was booted off the show last weekend.
The 56-year-old comedian shocked the studio audience in Sunday (22.10.17) night's show after he lunged on to the judges' podium, branded Darcey Bussell "the horny one" and slammed producers for only spending £25 on the toilet but, although his outburst didn't make it on screen, everyone on set "clearly" knew he was joking.
A source exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Brian was clearly joking and he has a really cheeky sense of humour which everyone in the studio saw. All the judges were crying with laughter!"
And, although there was a lot of gasps from the audience, Brian is adamant he doesn't regret saying what he said because he was only having "fun" - but still stands by his toilet comment.
Speaking after the show, the funny man told The Sun newspaper: "I don't regret what I said. I was having fun and the toilets here are terrible."
Brian found himself in the dreaded dance-off on Sunday's results show and, consequently given the boot, after his Jive - which he performed alongside professional partner Amy Dowden - failed to win over the judges when put up against chef Simon Rimmer's Charleston.
Speaking after the results were announced, Brian showered his professional partner with kind words, though not before he joked he was talking about fellow contestant Aston Merrygold.
He said: "I have loved everything about this, I truly have. It's one of the greatest shows, it's a family show, and you know what? There's been someone by my side all the way through this journey who's been there every moment, and that is Aston. I love him.
"No! I love this lady [Amy]. I wanted to be on this show forever and ever because I want everyone out there to know how special this lady is. She's a star, and I love her."
