Anton Du Beke, 54, was applauded by viewers after the Strictly Come Dancing professional was promoted to judge after being booted out the 2020 series. The dancer stepped in for Motsi Mabuse, 39, after she had to self-isolate due to government guidelines.
Since temporarily joining the panel alongside Craig Revel-Horwood and Shirley Ballas, the Strictly dancer confessed he would love the opportunity to be a “full-time judge” if a position was available.
However, Anton confessed he suffered some struggles during his time scoring the celebrities and their dance partners.
The ballroom dancer dished on his main concerns taking on the role in a new interview.
The dad-of-two, who recently released his third historical romance novel, said he struggled with “nerves”.
Despite Anton being put on the sidelines following Motsi’s return to the programme last week, fans have expressed their desire for the dancer to be added to the judging panel.
“Petition to bring back Anton as a Strictly Come Dancing judge,” one person penned.
Another person wrote: “Talking of Strictly, I have to say I’m really enjoying Anton Du Beke’s filling-in as a judge!”
“I miss Anton Du Beke, he made a great judge,” a third person added.
