Our May speaker is Anton Du Beke from BBC's "Strictly Come Dancing". He's a national treasure and a huge fan of our wonderful club! Brought to the public’s attention through the hit BBC1 show Strictly Come Dancing, Anton Du Beke has become a household name and a familiar face on our TV screens. Whether he’s dancing, presenting game shows, or making television guest appearances — he’s fast becoming a media personality in his own right and earning himself the title ‘Mr Showbiz’.
Witty, charismatic and a natural entertainer, Anton’s skills in front of an audience extend far beyond his dancing: he is now widely known for his quick wit, repartee and inimitable sartorial style. Coined ‘the ultimate gentleman’, Anton defines modern-day dapper: classically stylish and always impeccably turned-out – much like his hero Fred Astaire whom Anton upholds as his style icon.
Speaking of fans, it’s reputed that the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles as well as David Cameron all tuned in to see Anton and Ann Widdecombe’s show-stopping Strictly performances – their flamboyant routines causing nothing short of a nationwide sensation with over twelve million viewers tuning in!
