She famously threatened to sue him after he accused her of looking like she had 'inhaled two gallons of Veuve Clicquot' on Strictly Come Dancing.

But it appears Nancy Dell'Olio has forgiven judge Bruno Tonioli for his cutting critique of her dance skills.

Showing off her figure in a daring red bandage dress last night, the former lawyer, 50, looked friendly with fellow Italian, choreographer Bruno, 56, at the Terrence Higgins Trust Dinner last night.

The fiery duo arrived hand-in-hand together at the plush event at the Park Lane Hotel.

Their attendance comes over six months after Nancy raged over Bruno's comment about her performance, claiming she looked like she had been drinking.

He told the Daily Mail earlier this year: 'It was nonsense. Once the performance is over, I don't discuss it. It's nothing personal.

'All the dancers know they'll get hit like a ton of bricks if they try and bring something up with me afterwards.

'I'd
only have taken it seriously if it came from my lawyer, and I never
heard a thing. It was all talk. And I know more people than she does!'

Nancy
and her partner Anton Du Beke managed to survive until Week 4, despite
the judges' lack of enthusiasm for the dance skills.

At the time, she claimed she was responsible for Strictly trouncing X Factor in the TV ratings.

Despite having split from former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson many years ago, it appears Nancy still has an interest in football.

She gave an impressive critique of the England V France game on the Lorraine show on Tuesday.

She said: 'I said I should be running the FA!

'All the attention on WAGS came with
my arrival. They hadn't seen anyone like me. I don't think anyone
remembers any wife of a manager before.

'I've been called the first lady of English football which I really liked this title.'

Also at last night's dinner were TV presenters Gaby Roslin and Sarah Cawood and Jerry Hall.

The annual fundraising dinner for the AIDS and HIV charity was hosted by Stephen Fry.
