STRICTLY Come Dancing professional-turned-judge Anton Du Beke is heading to Weston-super-Mare as part of a brand new nationwide show.

The production, Showman – An Evening with Anton Du Beke, kicks off in Dartford on Sunday, March 3 and will continue around the UK, including a sold-out show at Weston's Playhouse Theatre on Sunday, March 10.

Anton will be performing an array of his favourite songs, as well as entertaining audiences with the ballroom dancing that he has become synonymous with, including a tap dance section and a dramatic Argentine tango with his dance partner Rosie Ward.

The show will also include a Q&A section with the audience, allowing attendees to ask Anton any burning questions they may have.

It’s the chance to hear everything from behind the scenes Strictly Come Dancing gossip to dancing mishaps and what the ultimate Showman eats for breakfast!

Since joining the first series of Strictly as a professional in 2004, Anton has appeared on every series since, and danced with partners including Ruth Langsford, Jerry Hall, Kate Garraway and Ann Widdecombe, while more recently he joined the judging panel.

Anton said: “I am always excited to be going out on the road, but this tour is the best yet. It has everything I love, songs, dance, chat and laughter – it’s my idea of a perfect evening.

“I am thrilled that Bill Deamer has choreographed it, we’ve known each other for years but this is the first chance we’ve had to work on one of my tours together and it’s spectacular.”

Bill Deamer added: “It all started for me and Anton more than 15 years ago when we both worked on a show at the London Palladium and then we came together again on Strictly.

“I had never worked with Anton on one of his tours but when he asked me this year, I said ‘Let’s do it - but if we’re going to do it, we’re going to do musical theatre!’ “The discipline that ballroom and Latin dancers have is really the same discipline as musical theatre dancers and when you put the two together, that’s when the magic happens.”

Dance captain Kelly Chow said: “I’ve been working with Anton for six years, he’s a joy to work with so I just keep coming back! I love that we do something new each year, and for this tour we have a big tap dance medley for you all, which is so exciting.”
