While another user suggested: “Sorry to see you go! How about putting you on the judging panel now ? Missing you already x.”

A third user implored: “So sad to see you go Anton strictly not the same with out you. Now you can be the next Bruno, get yourself in the judges seat.”

Whereas a further user even suggested he should host the BBC show: “It’s so unfair that Anton always gets the lame duck and is voted out early. I also think he should be hosting the show.”

Anton and Jacqui were at the bottom of the leaderboard for both week one and week two.

On their elimination, Jacqui profusely thanked Anton.

She said: “I had the greatest adventure it’s possible to imagine.

“I’m just sorry I can’t continue it with this man who has been absolutely fantastic and gorgeous to be with.

“So I’ll be watching you and supporting you.

Finally adding: “To Anton I would like to say you have been just an absolute joy to be with.

“I am so pleased and proud to have spent this time with you.”
