Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Anton Du Beke, 54, recalled one of his dances with This Morning host Ruth Langsford, 60, on the dancing competition three years ago. The BBC favourite expressed his thoughts over the wife of Eamonn Holmes being a “fine” Bond Girl, as they danced to Diamonds Are Forever.

She looked fine.

It comes after Anton joined hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, his fellow professional dancers and some previous celebrity contestants for tonight’s special Strictly: The Best of Movies.

The stars revisited Strictly ahead of the new series and shared their reactions over a selection of the best Hollywood moments on the show.

Anton was reminded of the night he and “Ruthie” danced a James Bond-themed number.

Viewers saw the professional dancer watch back a clip of Ruth on the dance floor dressed in a black gown with long blonde tresses.

Anton began: “Now I remember the night we did Diamonds Are Forever and Ruthie was a Bond Girl.”

While he watched Ruth start to move her arms at the start of the dance, he went on: “Oh. She looked fine, let me tell you and we did dance a wonderful Rumba.

“We just didn’t do the same dance at the same time.”

He added: “She looked gorgeous and I didn’t really mind.”

The James Bond hit earned them 15 points out of 40 from the judges.

When Ruth and Anton partnered up for the fifteenth series of Strictly, they finished in ninth place.

The 2017 series was won by Joe McFadden and Katya Jones, with Gemma Atkinson and Aljaž Skorjanec finishing in second place.

It comes after Anton announced some details about a new venture away from the show with dancer Giovanni Pernice.

The King of Ballroom recently told his fans he and the professional dancer have a new project planned for next year, which has been “two years in the making”.
