Anton Du Beke brings a rumba of excitement to Romford

Excited shoppers flocked to meet Strictly Come Dancing star, Anton Du Beke at The Liberty Shopping Centre on Friday, 29th March.

Fans could be seen queuing outside WHSmiths to meet the Strictly Star as he promoted his Sunday Times Bestselling Debut, entitled One Enchanted Evening, which Du Beke describes as “the story of my life without it being an autobiography. Glitz, glamour, scandal and secrets!”

Anton Du Beke also shared fond memories of the area with shoppers as he recalled winning one of his first dancing competitions at Ilford Palais.

Charlotte Summers, the first in the queue commented: “I have been a fan of Anton for a long time, ever since the show Strictly Come Dancing started in 2004. I felt extremely nervous before I met Anton however there was no need to be, and the nerves soon went away when I was talking to his as he’s so lovely!”

Jonathan Poole, Centre Manager at The Liberty Shopping Centre added: “We were delighted to welcome Anton Du Beke to The Liberty and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the excitement of the shoppers who came to meet him.”
