Anton Du Beke to step down? Former pro speaks out #Strictly

Anton Du Beke has strutted his stuff on the Strictly Come Dancing dance-off ever since the BBC series began in 2004. Despite being the only professional dancer to have appeared on every series, the stalwart has yet to lift the Glitterball Trophy although that could be about to change this weekend. As Anton prepares for the final with Emma Barton, former co-star Camilla Sacre-Dallerup discussed whether his time on the show is up.

After six series, Camilla was a runner-up with Gethin Jones and won the series with Tom Chambers.

In contrast, Anton has made it the final with Lesley Garrett and it’s yet to be decided if he’ll win with Emma this weekend.
