Strictly Come Dancing saw Karim Zeroual top the leaderboard last weekend with his partner Amy Dowden as they performed a Quickstep to Mr. Pinstripe suit by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, scoring them a near perfect 39 points. Anton found himself at the bottom of the leaderboard with Emma Barton, but is hoping to move back up this weekend with their Couple’s Choice routine.
Anton Du Beke has been a professional dancer since the show commenced in 2004 but has never won the series, but has taken this year’s series by storm with EastEnders actress Emma Barton as his partner.
The pair have generally succeeded with their routines, however, last week the pair failed to impress with their Rumba.
It saw them tumble to the the bottom of the leaderboard, scoring just 22 points, but they were saved by the public vote as they continue to prove popular with fans.
The judges delivered Emma a huge blow as they heavily criticised their performance, leading head-judge Shirley Ballas to clash with her dance partner Anton.
She told Emma: “First of all, I want to say, you’re tall, you’re elegant, and you have everything it takes to do a beautiful Rumba before I say what I’m about to say.

“The only timing I could read was the basic, the alemana and the sliding doors - three bars of Rumba.
“The rest of it, I have no idea on what count you were dancing this dance,” she continued.
As she was booed by the audience, the head judge hit back: “Hang on a minute, there are four beats, there are three steps. You have to understand that.”
