Burglars steal Brian Fortuna’s Strictly costumes

Brian Fortuna’s Strictly Come Dancing outfits have been stolen by burglars after they broke into his home, according to reports.

The US dancer, 27, who quit the BBC One show after being dropped from Strictly Come Dancing’s main line-up of professional dancers, was burgled at the weekend.

A friend told The Sun: “Brian is livid. He can’t believe someone would steal his beloved dancing gear. A lot has huge sentimental value, which no insurance claim will bring back.”

The source added: “Brian is keeping an eye on things like eBay to see if any of his stuff appears, but he’s not holding out much hope.”

Burglars are reported to have taken £10,000 worth of possessions from Brian’s London home, including his laptop, hi-fi gear and his Strictly wardrobe.

Brian fell in love with his celebrity dance partner Ali Bastian on the 2009 series and the pair, who were knocked out of the show in the semi-finals, have been in a relationship ever since.
