Anton du Beke is currently offering some words of wisdom to the remaining couples as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing after permanently replacing Bruno Tonioli on the panel

Strictly Come Dancing judge Anton Du Beke is expected to make a massive career U-turn should the BBC bring back Bruno Tonioli.

The professional dancer joined the judging panel this year to step in for fan favourite Bruno.

Although viewers at home are happy with the decision, Anton is reportedly considering a huge career shift if Bruno returns next year.

A source has told Birmingham Live: “Anton is loving his stint as a judge and producers are delighted with the job he’s been doing standing in for Bruno.”

“That said Bruno is a one-off and everybody expects to see him back Producers will then have a tough choice to make.”

“Once you’ve been a judge and decided who stays and goes it is very tricky to make that step back into the competition and take part against all the other dancers.”

Bruno, 65, stepped down from his role amid the Coronavirus pandemic and Anton stepped up to the plate.

TV personality Anton started out on the show as professional dancer in 2004 and has continued as a regular fixture over the past 18 years.

During the first ever series, Anton was a hit with the crowds and finished in third place with his celebrity partner, singer Lesley Garrett.

However, Anton has been a hit with the viewers this series alongside fellow judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse.

Bruno was unable to judge on this years series due to travel restrictions as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic and subsequent travel restrictions meant that Bruno was forced to step down from his role and return as a judge on Dancing With The Stars – the American version of the popular BBC dancing show.
