Darcey Bussell has hung up her judges shoes and called it a day on Strictly Come Dancing.

And now the question on everyone lips is – who will take her place?

The Strictly pros have been vocal on their choice and it should come as no surprise to anyone that it's beloved fellow pro dancer Anton du Beke.

The 52-year-old, who has been with the BBC show since it began in 2004, has emerged as a firm favourite with viewers as well as his fellow dancers.

The bookies are placing Anton as their favourite, with former Strictly professional Karen Hardy not far behind.

However also rumoured to be in the running is pro dancer Oti Mabuse, who was a coach on BBC's The Greatest Dancer.

A source at the BBC dance show has revealed that "loveable Anton" is the "cast's favourite choice" and some believe "it’s time for him to hang up his dancing shoes and sit on the other side of the table."

There was a back-handed compliment about Anton's dance skills thrown in, with the source calling him a "well-loved professional" but pointed out that "his glory years are over.''

This isn't Anton's first time trying to get on the judges panel as he auditioned to replace Len Goodman as head judge, but the role was given to Shirley Ballas.

So are his days being stuck with the novelty act behind him and will he rake a seat on teh panel next to Craig Revel-Horwood and Bruno Tonioli?

It looks like we better watch this space…

He further revealed that he's going to have a boy and a girl.

A source told The Sun: “Anton and Hannah are very happy together, and they decided some time ago that they were both ready to have children.

“Hannah didn’t fall pregnant quite as quickly as they would have liked and it was a source of worry for them for a while.

“Eventually they decided they wanted to try IVF treatment and they are delighted it has worked."

Hannah and Anton began dating six years ago after meeting at a golf club.

We're absolutely delighted for them.
