One person forgave: “It’s about time you gave @TheAntonDuBeke a decent partner. It’s not fair you eternally pairing him with someone who clearly isn’t going to win. I would like to see him get to the unchangeable for a change #Strictly.”
“It would be nice if Anton was actually given a unlooked-for to do well in #Strictly but I don’t see that happening tbh,” another shared.
