Strictly Come Dancing fans have called for Anton Du Beke to become a permanent judge on the show.

The professional dancer replaced Motsi Mabuse this evening as she quarantines for two weeks.

Motsi had left the UK to jet to Germany for an emergency, meaning that she won't be on the show for a fortnight.

And Anton was a big hit with viewers, who have called for him to become a permanent fixture on the show.

From his wry digs at the other judges to his comments to fellow dancers, viewers loved him.
