Strictly Fans Are Calling For Anton du Beke To Be Made Permanent Judge After He Replaced Motsi This Week

Professional dancer Anton du Beke made his debut on the judging panel on Saturday and Strictly Come Dancing fans have called for him to be made a permanent judge.

Anton temporarily replaced Motsi Mabuse after an urgent trip to Germany meant she had to quarantine and therefore miss Saturday's live show.

After making his grand entrance at the start of the show alongside fellow judges Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood, host Tess Daly asked him what kind of judge he would be. Anton quipped: "Well, I will endeavour to be much more generous than these two [Shirley and Craig] have been to me over the years."

Series 17 winner Kelvin Fletcher reacted positively to Anton joining the judging panel. He tweeted: "Loving Anton as a judge! Haha go on lad".

Several people who responded to Kelvin's tweet agreed and compared Anton to former judge Len Goodman who left the show in 2016.

Another woman said: "The best thing to happen is Anton Du Beke on the Judge's panel. He's been a great ambassador for the show & his constructive judging was excellent. #KeepAntonontheJudgespanel".

A third person said: "Anton du Beke is a lovely judge. Can we keep him?" Another happy viewer suggested that Anton join the panel as the fourth judge for the rest of the series. "Can Anton du Beke stay as a permanent judge! He deserves it so much after all these years and seeing as there's only 3 judges this season can't they just add him for the rest of this season?"
