Anton du Beke releases second novel and new Strictly DVD

Anton du Beke new book and DVD 2019

Strictly Come Dancing professional Anton Du Beke has released his second novel and a DVD.

Currently competing in this year’s series with celebrity partner Emma Barton, it seems Anton has been just as busy away from the ballroom as he is in the training room.

Earlier this year he published new book Moonlight Over Mayfair, the sequel to his first novel One Enchanted Evening.

Set in 1930s London, the book’s synopsis teases: “With a new King on the throne tensions are rising in London and across Europe. Not yet recovered from the Great Depression there’s talk of another war coming. Demonstrator dancer Raymond de Guise must hide his own views and put on a show for the rich and powerful guests of the Buckingham.

“But a lot can happen on the dancefloor – whispered conversations, secret relationships, clandestine messages passed – and Raymond soon finds himself in a position of both power and danger.”

Alongside the novel, Anton has also unveiled his very own Strictly DVD.

Anton’s Truly Madly Strictly DVD is available to order now and will be released in November.

A teaser reads:

Anton du Beke is the only professional dancer who has been on Strictly Come Dancing since day one! In this special feature length DVD, Anton uses his unique insight to take viewers on a tour of the show’s very best and most memorable dances.

He also shares some of his more personal memories, such as the routine he created and delivered with Sir Bruce Forsyth. Of course, it wouldn’t be Anton without the comedy… His hilarious pairings with contestants like Nancy Dell’Olio and Ann Widdecombe are the stuff of legend.

Meanwhile, you can also catch Anton on tour in 2020 with Erin Boag.

For now, Strictly Come Dancing is back on Saturday night as Anton and Emma take to the dancefloor for the final.

Strictly airs this Saturday night from 7:05PM on BBC One.
