Strictly Come Dancing’s Anton Du Beke lands a new job on This Morning – DigitalSpy.com
16 May 2019 MUSIC
Strictly Come Dancing favourite Anton Du Beke has got himself a new job on ITV’s This Morning – and it actually has nothing to do with dance.
On today’s (May 16) instalment, the professional hip-shaker explained in a VT that when he was trying to kick off his career, he trained as a baker. Now he’s revisiting that passion in a four-part series.

In this instalment, Anton took us around his house and made a Victoria sponge cake, while he also revisited a bakery. It was all very lovely.
Strictly judge Darcey Bussell recently shocked fans when she announced her departure after seven series, leading to much speculation about who will replace her.
It Takes Two host Zoe Ball has said that she would love to see Anton take over the role, but she’s also heard that it may be another woman.
Anton himself has said he certainly feels he is qualified to do it and would love to be asked. We imagine he’s probably a bit sick of getting lumped with the poorer contestants and not getting very far.
Speaking of those, er, less successful dancers, Anton recently shared his memories of dancing with Ruth Langsford, joking that there were a lot of tears.
This Morning airs weekdays (and Sundays) at 10.30am on ITV. Strictly Come Dancing is expected to return to BBC One in the autumn.
