Anton, 55, replaced Bruno during this year’s series as Covid-19 travel restrictions prevented the Italian dancer from being a judge on the panel.
However, Craig has now called for Anton to become permanent while Bruno should come back to make a five-judge panel.
Anton Du Beke to return to Strictly as a judge next year?
Speaking to MailOnline, Craig said: “I’d love to see Anton stay on permanently and Bruno back. I think that would be good for all of us.
“Bruno adds something Anton can’t and vice-versa, if you look at it that way, so I think they’ve both got different opinions which I think is perfectly good.”
Craig added: “We could easily have five people on that panel.”
However, the star said he thinks their “time would be limited because there are only two minutes for the judges to talk”.
But he insisted that they “would make it count”.
Meanwhile, Anton has won over viewers as a judge on this year’s series.
So much so, many people want him to return next year.
What’s Anton said about returning as a judge?
In November, the dad-of-two addressed whether he would return to Strictly in 2022.
He told OK Magazine: “I haven’t got anything to say about that because it’s not a decision I can make.
“We’ll leave that until next year I suppose.”
Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One, this Saturday (December 4), at 6:40pm.
