Trent: Anton's Move To Judging Panel Is "A Done Deal"

Former Strictly pro Trent Whiddon claims that Anton du Beke will be moving from the dancefloor to the judges' desk in 2017, replacing the departing Len Goodman.

Trent candidly told the Daily Mirror: "It isn’t official yet, but it may as well be – it’s long been virtually guaranteed that Anton will fill any gaps on the judging panel. He’s such a big part of the family and viewers love him, so BBC bosses know there’s no risk of it not working out. The time is right and it’s a done deal.”

Anton, or someone of his experience, seems like a good fit. They need to make sure there is a ballroom & latin-focused judge on there to raise the more technical points that Len would raise in order for the show to retain any kind of integrity.
