Strictly's Erin Boag reveals the real reason she's not on this year's show.

I can't keep it covered up any longer... There's been much speculation about my absence from this year's Strictly Come Dancing, but I can now reveal the real reason why I turned down appearing on this year's show... Yes, I'm truly excited and delighted to say… I'm pregnant!

My husband Peter and I are expecting the arrival of our first child in the spring of next year. It's such a relief to be able to tell all, as it's been 'strictly mum's the word' these past few months! Another reason for being so quiet is that I have been battling with terrible morning sickness – I don't know why it's called "morning" sickness as I had it morning, noon and night!!!

My career is such an important part of my life, however with ten series of Strictly under my belt, it just felt the right time.

Before baby arrives, amongst other things, Anton and I will be performing at the Royal Albert Hall this Christmas with 'Anton & Erin's Christmas Cracker' (I'm sure those gorgeous gowns might need a bit of letting-out by then!).

As some of you will know, Anton and I have been fortunate to perform our sell-out UK tours for the past five years but for obvious reasons I won't be able to perform this time - though I will be helping Anton prepare for, and supporting him on his solo tour which launches early next year.

And after baby's born?... I'll be back dancing just as soon as my body and fitness allows! Anton and I already have bookings in place for next year, and I'm particularly delighted to say we're planning a big come-back tour for 2015! So there's plenty to look forward to, as you all now know – especially the pitter-patter of tiny feet too.

Be sure to keep up with my news on my personal blog and by following me on twitter!

Lots of love,
Erin

We're incredibly excited to welcome you to the very first blog post on our brand new Anton & Erin website!

Let's jump in both feet first and start with a quick round-up of the year so far – it's really flown by, and it doesn't feel like our feet have touched the ground, literally! We've travelled the length and breadth of the country with our 'Puttin' on the Ritz' show, and we really hope some of you were able to come along and share in the experience. If you missed it, be sure to take a look at the super photos in the tour gallery but here are some great teasers shown here...



With more time on our hands we turned our attention to our website – no doubt you'll all agree that a new site was well overdue! We're so pleased to share all the hard work with you now, and once again, Scott & David at the Bungalow have come up trumps (we especially like the 'Play Your Cards Right' approach to 'Strictly'... see below!) We're both thrilled with our new look, and can't wait to hear your feedback!

Firstly we now have our very own blog! No more excuses for not keeping you all up to date with our comings and goings, exciting news, and some behind-the-scenes photos so you can share and join in with our fun!

You can now also sign up to our mailing list so you'll be the very first to know when we release show and tour dates, and as and when we have exciting news to share, you'll receive it straight to your inbox.

There are lots of new pictures and galleries for you to flick through, see our latest photo shoots, tour pictures and much, much more.

For all you 'Strictly' fans, there is a super new page for you too where you can revisit all the past series of the show, see the scores, watch our dances, and relive all those favourite moments!



We now have a new Forum page for you to share your thoughts and get in touch with each other — we've called it our 'Speakeasy' and we both look forward to reading your comments and getting to know you all.

To make it easier to follow our steps, we have a live twitter feed here on our Blog page — if you you've not yet dipped your toe into twitter, go on and give it a go, it's fun and you get all the latest news as it happens: out and about, on the red carpet, and backstage too!



We also have a lovely new shop, so for the first time you can buy signed photos, the most fabulous posters... and other treats to be revealed soon!

We hope you love the new site as much as we do — it's been great fun seeing it come together and we're delighted with the results. We'd love to see you all using the 'Speakeasy', commenting on our blog posts and keeping in touch with us.

We can't begin to thank you all enough for your continued support, lovely comments and for being the best fans anyone could wish to have. This site is for you... Enjoy!

With love,
Anton & Erin
