Anton Du Beke of Strictly Come Dancing says his future on the BBC show is ‘uncertain.’
Anton Du Beke, a judge on the popular BBC dancing show Strictly Come Dancing, has confirmed that he has no idea if he’ll be able to continue his role on the show when it returns next year.
When it comes to his job as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing, Anton Du Beke has stated that there are “no guarantees.”
Despite the positive feedback he received after stepping in for Bruno Tonioli on the BBC show, he has no idea whether he will be invited back next year.
After Covid-19 restrictions prevented him from traveling back and forth between Strictly in the UK and Dancing With The Stars in America, the Italian choreographer had no choice but to make way for Anton.
This freed up a spot on the panel for Anton to take on a presenting role rather than his usual professional dancing gig on the show.
Despite his positive reviews and popularity among the British public, BBC executives have yet to decide whether he will be asked back in 2022 or if his co-star Bruno will replace him.
Anton admitted to the Express.co.uk that he was unsure about his future on the dancing show.
“I don’t know!” he exclaimed when asked about his future as a judge.
“I don’t have anything to say because I don’t know what anyone else is thinking.”
The Ballroom and Latin Dancing champion went on to say that he didn’t feel singled out at this point, and that many of his co-stars would be caught in the middle as well.
“But then there’s no guarantee on anyone, is there?” he added.
“Every year, whether it’s the pros or the judges, they either decide to keep or refresh, whatever you want to call it.”
Meanwhile, Tom Fletcher broke down in tears while discussing his departure from Strictly Come Dancing’s spin-off show It Takes Two.
The McFly singer and his professional partner Amy Dowden performed On My Own from Les Misérables as their Couples Choice, which landed them in the bottom two on Sunday’s results show.
They competed against CBBC star Rhys Stephenson and his partner Nancy Xu, who danced the Footloose jive.
“It was fantastic,” Tom told host Rylan.
It was one of a kind.
“I did it for my sister, a musical theatre performer.”
It was the first time I’d ever done something like this.
