Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Anton du Beke "furious" with Jerry Hall pairing!

Anton Du Beke and Jerry Hall

Strictly Come Dancing professional Anton du Beke reportedly reacted furiously to getting paired with Jerry Hall.

The Strictly Come Dancing 2012 pairings were revealed last night, with Anton being put with the supermodel ex-wife of Mick Jagger.

But poor Anton wasn't happy, having been partnered with Ann Widdecombe and Nancy Dell'Olio in the past two years.

A source told The Sun today: “Anton was livid.

"He hoped he’d get someone like Victoria Pendleton who viewers would love. He feared Jerry would be another high-maintenance star who the public would end up not liking.”

Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood was quick to also question the pair's chances, bitching on last night's launch show: “She was hoping for someone tall, dark and handsome — and ended up with Anton.”

However Anton hopes that at least Jerry has a chance of staying in the contest for more than a few weeks this time!

A BBC source told the tabloid: “He’s thinking that she’s quite high-profile, so might get him to the final.”
