    Former Strictly Come Dancing star Vincent Simone has taken a brutal swipe at his former co-star and judge Anton Du Beke on Good Morning Britain.

    During Monday’s (August 28) visit to the ITV studios, Kate Garraway and Richard Madeley welcomed viewers back to the morning news programme where they discussed the top stories hitting the headlines.

    Throughout the show, the dynamic duo welcomed former Strictly stars Ian Waite and Vincent as they promoted their upcoming tour on the show.

    When they discussed one of their best features on the show, the Italian dancer revealed that the pair are both the tallest and shortest dancers to appear on the long-running series.

    He informed: “We do have something that none of the other Strictly pros have – the size. You’re the biggest ever and I’m the smallest ever” as Ian chuckled: “Well it has been said before.”

    Ian added: “Well, we can never be the oldest Vince, that’s Anton Du Beke” as the ballroom dancer feigned surprise and cheekily asked: “Is he still alive?”

    But their cheeky antics didn't end there, with Ian quickly getting Richard out of his seat on the dancefloor live on the show.

    Before the show took an advert break, viewers got to see the dad-of-two try his hand at Latin dancing as he practiced the Samba with the pair.

    It comes after the 15 anxious celebrities prepare to take to the stage next month for the 21st series of the ballroom competition.

    But the dace competition has been thrown into a spot of chaos recently after star Amanda Abbington has fallen sick weeks before the show's launch.

    The 51-year-old actress will be joining the likes of EastEnders' Bobby Brazier, Corrie's Ellie Leach and TV presenter Les Dennis in a bid to be crowned the champ and take home the prestigious Glitterball trophy.

    But unfortunately, Amanda has had to halt rehearsals ahead of the launch after being struck down with "vicious" food poisoning.

    Thankfully, the actor has started to recover from her sudden bout of illness, and is still set to delight viewers on the dancefloor next month.
