HEAD judge Shirley Ballas has revealed she’d share the dance floor with Anton Du Beke as the routines for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing finalists are revealed.

Speaking on Strictly: It Takes Two, host Janette Manrara welcomed Ballas to the studio, where the judge revealed what Strictly star she’d love to share the dance floor with were she given the chance.

After choosing a ‘loose silk shirt’ for her partner, she said:

“Well, the person I would pick wasn’t actually a Strictly champion, he was a professional. It would have to be Anton Du Beke”.

After a 12 weeks of tough competition and show-stopping routines, we are down to our final three couples, who all have one goal in mind… Lifting the Glitterball trophy

The Grand Final will feature each couple performing their favourite dance, a show dance, and a dance chosen by the judges. The winner will be determined by a combination of judges’ scores and votes from the audience.

Bobby and Dianne:

  • Favourite Dance: Couple’s Choice to “This Woman’s Work” by Maxwell
