Anton joins the Strictly judging panel

The news comes weeks after the Strictly star reportedly told show bosses he wants to be a permanent fixture on the judging panel.

A source told the Mail On Sunday: “This is a dream come true for Anton.

“For many years now he has fancied the role but has been beaten to it when the likes of Motsi and before that Shirley Ballas were brought in.”

The insider added: “He really will stop at nothing on his pitch to become a full-time judge.”

Meanwhile, James Jordan added: “NO-ONE deserves it more than Anton.

“He will be an amazing edition to the panel. I just hope they can find a way to make him a permanent judge.”
