Anton To Screen Test For Judge Spot

Anton du Beke is reportedly taking a screen test for judging on Strictly, as bosses look for a replacement for Len Goodman.

A source told The Sun: “Everyone loves Anton and he has been one of the favourites for the job because of his seniority and for being on the show since it started. He would be like a younger Len and the transition would definitely be a smooth one. They’ve obviously not ruled out other people but it’s a good sign for Anton.”

I think Anton would be a good fit. He's proved himself judging other shows in the past, he knows the technique and would fill the gap left by Len. I just hope he can be critical enough on-screen. He does tend to be the 'nice guy'.

It's interesting that the producers are taking so long over this decision. Alesha was brought in seemingly on a whim, and it seems that the producers do not want to rock the boat so much anymore. It's one thing to keep the show fresh, but there needs to be an element of what made it popular retained.
