Strictly’s Anton Takes A Dig At Winkleman
Anton previously upset dance partner Laila Rouass and the general public by referring to her as a p***. Uncool, Du Beke, uncool.
Now he’s voiced his opinion on presenter Claudia Winkleman, according to The Sun.
When national treasure Bruce Forsyth was unable to film an episode, Winkleman stepped up to help host the show with Tess Daly and Ronnie Corbett.
But Anton thought that it didn’t go too well. “It was bleeding awful.”
“We preferred it when Bruce was there – and I’m talking about ‘we’ as the nation. I think they’re all firmly behind me.”
We never thought we’d agree with Anton but Bruce looks at home as the host of the show and Winkleman doesn’t lend the kind of gravitas to it that Bruce does. He could have timed his comments better though, Winkleman has just been named as the new host of Film 2010, and while we weren’t best pleased about the appointment, we’ll give her a fair shot.
“I’m sure Bruce won’t leave. The show isn’t the show without him.” Too true Anton, too true.
