SIR - My wife and I have watched Strictly since it started some 17 years ago.

Anton Du Beke has always appeared and is now classed as possibly the finest ballroom dancer in the world.

His move to the judges table is a credit to him and to the show. As a judge, he always appears very smart in 'black tie' and gives constructive criticism either way.

Long may he appear on the judges panel and bring his experience and knowledge to the show.
