Anton Du Beke reportedly fears he may be axed from Strictly Come Dancing.
The 53-year-old ballroom dancer is a veteran of the BBC show, having made his Strictly debut in 2004 – but Anton apparently fears that his time on the programme may be coming to a close.
Anton could be moved to another role in the show, according to the Sunday Mirror newspaper, which also reports that he could even explore opportunities elsewhere.
A source said: “Anton will always be part of the Strictly family but there’s a sense this year that it could be his last.”
ED! has reached out to reps for comment.
However, Anton – who has never won the coveted Strictly trophy – recently admitted to loving his time on the popular show.
He explained: “Strictly was life-changing for me. I’d been a competitive dancer previously, the show took my life in a completely different ¬direction, which is incredible.
“I’m the last original professional dancer. I love it so much and have an enthusiasm for it which hopefully comes across.”
Anton – who released a music album, From the Top, in 2017 – also admitted he relished working with his latest Strictly partner, actress Emma Barton.
He shared: “I’ve had the most remarkable time, the most brilliant time with Emma. We look like a proper dancing couple and that takes a lot of time.
“That is testament to Emma being just the most wonderful partner to spend time with.”
