Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke will publish his debut novel this autumn.
One Enchanted Evening is described as a “sweeping historical” novel set around a London hotel ballroom in the run up to World War II.
Speaking about the novel, Du Beke said although a huge challenge, he was thrilled to be taking the project on. “I’ve always loved a good story. Until now I’ve only told them through dance. Now it’s time to take them to the page.”
“It’s a huge challenge for me but one I am thrilled to be undertaking. I hope my readers will be as enchanted by my book as they would be by a perfect 10 for one of my routines.”
No official publication date yet, but I expect it will be around the same time as Strictly returns later this year.
