Anton Du Beke stepped in for Motsi Mabuse once again as the Strictly Come Dancing judge was missing from the panel. He was full of praise for Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse but as he critiqued the pair, viewers were sent into meltdown when they heard how Anton pronounced the professional dancer’s name.
“Tail suits, top hats, canes, I don’t know about Blackpool but I feel like we’re in heaven,” Anton remarked as he gave his feedback.
“This is right up my street. I loved everything about it.
“You had a beautiful quality across the floor; calm. You’ve got a wonderful top line, arm position was perfect.
“The thing I enjoyed about it the most was your parenting skill. You watch Oti intently and you follow her as all great male dancers do and you’re there for when she goes into a back bend or when she does some spins.
Ladbrokes have Caroline 6/4 in the betting to be the next celebrity eliminated from Strictly, with JJ Chalmers close behind at 7/4.
At the other end, Bill Bailey is now the favourite to win the series with professional dancer Oti Mabuse.
His odds of lifting the Glitterball are priced at 6/4 with Clara Amfo, Maisie Smith and HRVY 6/1 apiece to win the series.
