Anton du Beke, 54, has shared an exciting announcement with his 249,000 Twitter followers, as he revealed he will be going on tour with fellow Strictly Come Dancing pro Giovanni Pernice, 29. The King of Ballroom told fans the duo will be making the move away from the BBC show next year and that the project has been “two years in the making”.

Anton shared a behind-the-scenes clip of himself and Giovanni at a promotional photoshoot for their tour while discussing their upcoming production.

Giovanni said in the video: “I don’t know if you follow my show where I said Anton du Beke is my idol and I get to do a show with you.”

“I get to do a show with you and I suddenly feel younger!” Anton exclaimed in response.

Speaking to the camera, he continued: “I’m so excited about this, we’ve just done a photoshoot… do you want to tell them?”

A third fan commented: “Sounds like good fun, if you’re in my town I will be there xx.”

Elsewhere, Anton was recently spotted arriving at a secret location with his fellow Strictly pros before the BBC show returns for the 2020 series in October.

The stars are staying in a hotel in Buckinghamshire, where they will reportedly be training for the upcoming series in isolation before the launch show.

It comes after the programme revealed they will undergo several changes this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The professional dancers will form a “bubble” in order to begin training safely for the series.

The dancers were pictured getting out of their cars outside the hotel last week while clutching onto huge suitcases for their stay.

Anton was seen welcoming his co-star Dianne Buswell to the gathering with a big hug.

He lifted her off her feet in an adorable snap outside the hotel in pictures obtained by The Mirror.
