The professional dancer says he is yet to be signed up for the 2018 programme - sparking fears he might be dropped.

Things were full of drama in the Strictly Come Dancing camp at the start of the year when it was revealed professional dancer Brendan Cole had been axed from the show.

The 42-year-old ballroom star was one of the longest serving dancers on the show alongside fellow Strictly veteran, Anton Du Beke and many fans were stunned by his departure.

Up until now everyone had assumed Anton Du Beke, 51, will be a given to rejoin the show again when it airs for its sixteenth season this winter.

But his recent cryptic comments have left some worrying.

When asked by The Express about whether he has renewed his contract he said: "No… That’s getting closer, there will be an official announcement from the Strictly press office hopefully soon but still.

"We’ll have to wait and see until the official announcement,"

That doesn't sound like his position on the show is guaranteed and Anton could still be in the dark with the rest of us on the matter.

But he did say: "I will carry on doing what I do with the partners I get because that’s the way I do it and that’s what I love to do. Until someone tells me otherwise."
