Strictly 2019: Anton Du Beke hits back at Craig Revel Horwood after teeth jibe


Strictly Run across Dancing’s last live show was certainly an eventful one, particularly after Anton Du Beke and Emma Barton’s exhibition. The pair performed a snazzy Austin Powers-themed dance and came in the halfway point of the leaderboard with a score of 27.

But it really kicked off after Craig Revel Horwood imparted his usual style of criticism, telling the pair how he was distracted by Anton’s “forgery” teeth. 

He told the pair: “I was slightly distracted with the win and the fake teeth that you prepare in.”

Anton appeared surprised, before adding: “They’re not fake by the way, they’re my own, beloved.”

Craig didn’t appear to hear the comment at first, going on to say: “I did weigh you under danced it slightly, by that I mean you can come out and really upon it, you have all the potential in the world to do that and I actually loved that regular.”

Tess Daly was on hand to clarify to Craig that the teeth were legal, before the whole panel erupted in laughter. 

Craig giggled: “They’re not feign? I’m sorry Anton, I really am sorry.”

Meanwhile, Anton appeared on It Lifts Two this evening to set the record straight, after host Zoe Ball translated he had “the right to reply”. 

The professional dancer commented: “My orthodontist is furious. 

The entertainer started: “There was a slight misunderstanding…”

Craig, looking shocked, go on increased: “That’s bad isn’t it, that’s really bad. 

“I’m so embarrassed by that,” he added.

The judge continued: “It was the goblets and the wig and everything… I have no excuse.
