Here are all the talking points from the pro dancers’ moment in the spotlight… Anton stole the show - but is it his last series?

STRICTLY's Anton Du Beke collapsed to the ground after receiving his first 10s in FIFTEEN YEARS after dancing with Emma Barton. The 53-year-old professional has been on the show since it began in 2004, and even though he has reached the final before, he's never received a perfect mark from any of the judges. But that all changed tonight during the Blackpool special after dancing the American Smooth with his celebrity partner Emma in the Tower Ballroom. After glowing remarks from the judges, the couple headed to receive their scores, and after an eight and a nine from Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse, head judge Shirley Ballas held up her 10 paddle. Bruno Tonioli also dished out a 10, and Anton couldn't believe what he saw, collapsing to the ground and covering his face as EastEnders star Emma looked equally shocked.

STRICTLY pro Anton Du Beke has insisted this could be his year to grab the Glitterball trophy - because partner Emma Barton has "got her own teeth". The 53-year-old star, who has been twinned with a parade of older ladies for years, told the Radio Times: "I’m very excited about this one." He added: "Emma’s tall, gorgeous and talented. She’s an absolute dream and, I’ve got to be honest, younger than I’m used to." Then, in a dig at some of his previous partners, he added: "And she’s got her own teeth. That’ll do for me.” Anton is unaccustomed to being partnered with someone as young as 42-year-old EastEnders star Emma, who plays Honey Mitchell. He has been paired with 71-year-old Brexit party MEP Ann Widdecombe, 73-year-old Birds Of A Feather star Lesley Joseph and 79-year-old That's Life legend Esther Rantzen.Indeed, Anton has only made it to the final twice - coming third with singer Lesley Garrett in 2004 and fourth with TV presenter … [Read more...] about Strictly’s Anton Du Beke gloats he can finally win as partner Emma Barton ‘has her own teeth’
STRICTLY judge Craig Revel Horwood was left red-faced last night after mocking Anton Du Beke's 'comedy' teeth - not realising they were REAL. Anton, 53, was performing as famously wonky-toothed spy Austin Powers and the 54-year-old assumed he was wearing fake gnashers. Craig told him: "I was slightly distracted by the wig and the fake teeth you have in." But Strictly veteran Anton replied icily: "They're not fake by the way, they're all my own, dear." Host Tess Daly, who was in hysterics over the gaffe, was doubled over with laughter before asking: "They're not fake are they? Just to clarify that?" Mortified, Craig clasped a hand to his face, replying: "They're not fake? Oh, God. Really?"Bruno Tonioli shouted across: "They're his real teeth" as Anton's partner Emma Barton whispered: "Slightly embarassing." Craig, looking uncharacteristically ashamed and lost for words, eventually said: "Sorry Anton, I really... "Sorry. It's because of the wig and the glasses and everything."
