Anton Du Beke, 54, tied the knot with his wife Hannah Summers, 44, in 2017 and the couple welcomed their twins, George and Henrietta, the same year. The Strictly Come Dancing professional’s other half opened up about him working with his celebrity dance partners on the BBC show in a new podcast.

Speaking on Johnnie and Tiggy Walker’s Consciously Coupling podcast, Anton and Hannah spoke about their marriage, kids and all things Strictly.

Hannah warned people to not date a dancer if they are easily prone to jealousy.

Her comments come after podcast host Johnnie asked: “When Anton’s doing Strictly, the couple’s on the screen are all over each other.

“Do you ever think to yourself, ‘Get off him,'”

Anton’s wife explained that his celebrity dance partners are not a cause for any concern in their relationship.

Hannah replied: “Do you know what, I think age helps.”

Anton interjected: “What do you mean?”

Hannah explained: “Two things on that. I’ve got to the stage in life where if they want to be with you, they’ll be with you. Otherwise don’t. I think I’m not of that disposition anyway.

“I wouldn’t advise anyone who is of a jealous disposition to go out with a dancer because they’re tactile.”

She continued: “The majority of the time the [professional dancers] are naked or in their pants between shows.

“They’ve all got glorious bodies.”

“If you go backstage on the tours people are walking around in their pants and bras, y-fronts or whatever.”

Hannah added that she didn’t believe it was the “right mix” for a jealous person to date a professional dancer.

“Also, that’s their job,” Hannah explained. “Talking about the Strictly professionals, it’s a little bit disrespectful because that’s their profession.”

She added: “If they are young and single then that’s different.”

Anton’s other half also stated that she believed it was wrong to assume that every time a man or a woman dance with one another it is seen as “sexual”.

Anton is the longest serving professional dancer on Strictly having made his debut in 2004.

He’s been on the team since the first series, partnering with the likes of Laila Rouass, Patsy Palmer, Jan Ravens, Jerry Hall, Judy Murray and Ann Widdecombe, Ruth Langsford and Emma Barton over the years.

Elsewhere, on the podcast Hannah discussed her fertility struggles as she underwent IVF treatment.

She also revealed she had been diagnosed with tuberculosis at the time, before welcoming their children.
