Sea star Emma is best known to the public as Honey Mitchell in EastEnders and was one of the first celebrities revealed for this year's Strictly.

She revealed: & # 39; From the age of eighteen I attended music theater school for three years, so I know some basic principles. However, I was the bottom of every dance class – that is a fact – so it will be great to start over. & # 39;

It was speculated that this year Anton would resign from his role as a dancer to become a member of the Strictly jury.

Anton's hope, however, was canceled out when it was announced that Motsi Mabuse – the sister of professional dancer Oti – would join the panel instead.

Reports at the time claimed that Anton felt he was next in line for the prestigious position after the departure of Darcey Bussell last year.

A source told The Sun: & he felt that if he recruited into the Strictly family, he should be. And even though he didn't do a screen test for the role, he really thought he had a chance. & # 39;

The source added: & # 39; So when the news came out that Motsi was the new judge, he was furious. And he claimed that he would stop unless the strict bosses improved him a & # 39; position.

& # 39; It was a real downer for his pride, especially since this is the second time he has been overlooked. & # 39;

The reports came after the dancer went to social media to publicly congratulate Motsi and to welcome the new judge to the iconic show 24 hours after her role was announced.
