Anton and Fiona

For those of you who know me well, you'll know I've been a little slow to embrace technology... But with a new shiny new iPad under my arm, I'm doing my best to get up to speed. And up to speed is now an understatement... I've gone the whole hog and had a fabulous new website to boot, complete with videos to watch, a live social media feed - get me with all the technology jargon!

Anyway, I do hope you like it, have fun exploring it... and be sure to add yourself to my address book, follow me on Twitter, like me on Facebook... and make me your pin up on Pinterest... Phew! I'm exhausted at the thought of it all.

So with Strictly things to do I really must dash, but before I go I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank you all once again for being just the very best fans anyone could ever wish for, and for your continued support and encouragement!

With all my love,
Anton

Series eleven of 'Strictly' has already burst onto our screens with a cracking Red Carpet Celebrity reveal show. And if that tantalising warm-up for this season's show is anything to go by, it's going to be unmissable viewing!


As I'm sure you'll already know, the very lovely Erin isn't joining us on the show this year. After ten series she has declined the BBC's offer to appear once again and will, I'm sure, be sadly missed by all - especially me ...However we do hope she'll be putting in an appearance at some point!  Read more here.

So, back to the task ahead: this year I'm delighted to say I have the really rather super Fiona Fullerton as my celebrity dance partner.

Anton and Fiona

With the show just about to start we have already been hard at work rehearsing, and I couldn't be happier with Fiona's progress. I'd go as far as to say she is shaping up rather nicely! This of course is helped somewhat by new name for me (Mr Wonderful!)... plus a lot of hard work and tea!

Breaking for tea

I may have to raise my voice though as I had said 1,2,3,4... not 1,2,3, floor!

After the dance

Anyway, there is still much to do. So all that's left to say is that I hope you'll join us each week! Please keep up with the much appreciated support, and keeeeep voting!

I hope you have have fun and enjoy the new series, we certainly intend too!

Lots of love,

Anton

It's hard to believe, but this will be our tenth series on Strictly Come Dancing. The show has been an enormous part of both our lives since it burst onto television screens back in 2004, and it just gets better and better. This year sees a sensational line up, and in terms of the pairings – and to coin a Brucie phrase – 'didn't they do well!'

Jerry Hall and Richard Arnold are our celebrity partners for 2012, and we're hoping for great things, not least the possibility of holding that glitter ball up in the air at the finals! So Jerry and Richard take note, we've got high hopes for you both!

Jerry Hall and Richard Arnold

We're also excited to welcome Darcey Bussell to the judges' panel — she will be a great addition to the show...  let's hope she's going to be kind with us!

So as the whirlwind starts yet again, the coming weeks will fly by: working our celebrity dance partners as hard as we can, rehearsing for those fabulous group dances, costume fittings and numerous interviews and television appearances… It's Strictly time, and we absolutely love it!

Anton and Erin

Be sure to keep a step ahead by following us both on twitter (@theAntonDuBeke & @ErinBoag), where you'll get all the gossip and action as it happens. And keep tabs on our progress via our Brucie-inspired 'Play Your Cards Right' Strictly scorecards – we'll keep them updated with the scores and video clips of all our dances from each show so you can watch them over and over again.

Scorecards

So, we're off to polish our shoes, slip on our sequins... and prepare for a showstopper of a series! Until next time, keeeeep dancing!

Lots of love,

Anton & Erin
