He’s taken the step up to the judging panel on Strictly Come Dancing this year, but Anton Du Beke could reportedly be offered a pay rise in order to be tempted back to the show as a dancer in 2022. 

The 55-year-old took over from Bruno Tonioli this year after the long-standing judge was forced to remain in the US due to the pandemic and commitments to Dancing With The Stars.

‘They appreciate it’ll be hard for him to go back to the day job. So they’re keen to offer a sweetener.’

It comes after Anton watched on as Strictly Come Dancing star Rose Ayling-Ellis was crowned the 2021 winner after an emotional final.
