Strictly Come Dancing judge Anton Du Beke has lined up a dancing comeback on stage.
While Anton will be firmly seated at the judge's panel on this weekend's Strictly launch show and beyond, he will be hitting the stage — and the skies — this December at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking.
The dance legend will headline the theatre's 2023 panto version of Peter Pan, which boasts "amazing special effects, stunning sets, beautiful costumes and barrel-loads of laughter," according to the theatre.
The laughs will likely come courtesy of Anton and co-star Paul Chuckle, one-half of the legendary comedy duo the Chuckle Brothers, as the pirates Smee and Starkey. Other casting announcements will be made in due course.
Tickets are available now for Peter Pan: The High-Flying Panto Adventure via ATG, beginning from £13.00 (subject to a transaction fee of £3.80). You can click here for a full calendar of Peter Pan dates.
The panto is currently scheduled to run for matinees and evening performances from Friday, December 8, 2023, through Sunday, January 7, 2024.
Anton has also been in the news recently for criticising fans who leak results from Strictly Come Dancing tapings and thus spoil surprises for others.
"That irritates me. I get irritated. I hate anybody who's a spoiler," he told Metro. "I can only think they take great pleasure from it and I just want to say, 'grow up'. Don't spoil it for other people."
Strictly Come Dancing returns for its launch special on Saturday (September 16) on BBC One, while spin-off Strictly: It Takes Two airs on BBC Two. Both shows are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
