Professional dancer Anton du Beke was eliminated in the second week of Strictly Come Dancing with partner Jacqui Smith but has returned to the BBC series to step in as a judge after Motsi Mabuse had to self-isolate. Anton was a hit with fans of the show and now, fellow judge Craig Revel Horwood has noted it will be hard to remove him from the panel. Could a permanent seat on the judging panel be on the cards for Anton?
Craig said of Anton: “He was like a three-year-old coming in, sitting in his podium. He was loving himself sick.
“It was fantastic to see him on the podium, I was delighted that finally he got his chance.
“I think he’s going to be a little bit like Trump – difficult to remove.”
Anton’s addition to the judging panel is just one of the many changes to Strictly this year.
