Anton du Beke Mark Harrison

Fee Band

With partners from Ann Widdecombe to Jerry Hall, Anton danced on every Strictly series before graduating to a seat on the judges’ panel. He’s also hosted Hole In The Wall, appeared on Victoria Wood’s Midlife Christmas, and is a regular on Steph's Packed Lunch.


At the age of 14 Anton du Beke gave up boxing and football and took up ballroom dancing. He won numerous amateur competitions before eventually turning pro with his long-term partner Erin Boag - then sweeping to fame on Strictly Come Dancing. The show has made Anton a household name, one of only two professionals to appear in every series of the show, and he's now one of the judges.

Alongside Strictly duties, Anton is a frequent guest on other shows with credits from The Wright Stuff to Countdown to Hole In The Wall. He's also a regular contributor on Channel 4's Steph's Packed Lunch.

Anton has danced with Cherie Blair (to much mutual admiration), released a series of dance-themed books as well as novels, recorded an album, and claims often to be mistaken for the Welsh comedy actor, Rob Brydon.

We were joined at 87 Barts Close by three brilliant speakers on a panel that delved into the complex world of Artificial Intelligence. Over the hour our panellists de-mystified AI, speaking about AI’s immense promise for enhancing our lives, alongside the apprehension it has generated regarding job security, privacy infringement, and ethical considerations.
