Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke has confessed to following his wife Hannah Summers to the toilet to declare his love for her on their very first meeting. On Steph’s Packed Lunch, Anton explained he had seen Hannah at a function and chased off after her to introduce himself after locking eyes with her across the table and falling in love at “first sight”.
The Channel 4 presenter quizzed Anton on relationship milestones with his wife.
Steph asked: “What are you like with saying ‘I love you’ how far into your relationship with Hannah before you said ‘I love you.’
“Almost immediately,” Anton replied. “I knew almost immediately that I loved her.
“She always loved me immediately but I was holding a bottle of wine.

“I knew on my side that it was love pretty immediately.”
“Really? Literally love at first sight,” the Channel 4 presenter asked.
“Yeah it was one of those,” the Strictly star said. “She was sat across a big table at a do.
“And you know these dos they get a bit loud so you end up speaking to the people next to you only.
“And I saw her across the table and I thought wow she is absolutely outrageous.
“The evening went on and I hadn’t had the chance to speak to her and I found that she wasn’t with anyone because the chap she’d arrived with was just a pal. She went off to the loo as one does…”
“You didn’t follow her,” Steph said. “Please tell me you didn’t follow her.”
“I followed her,” Anton confirmed. “As I’m walking behind her thinking to myself ‘I’m actually following her to the loo’ she went into the ladies and I waited outside the ladies for her.

“I’m staggered she actually spoke to me. She came out and she looked at me and asked ‘Have you been waiting out the ladies for me?’ and I went ‘Yes, it’s because I love you.’”
“That’s brilliant,” the Channel 4 presenter remarked.
“[She must have thought] ‘Okay you’re a bit weird,’” Anton concluded.
Earlier in the week, Anton shared his thoughts on taking over from Bruno Tonioli as a judge on the 2021 series of Strictly.
Steph asked: “Anton I want to ask you about the papers over the weekend about Bruno saying he won’t be able to judge Strictly this year. Does this mean [you’ll be stepping in?]”
“I don’t know,” Anton replied. “We’ll have to wait and see what they have to say about it.
“They’ve not [called]. I’ve been waiting for the phone to ring but it hasn’t arrived yet.
“But you’d love it though, wouldn’t you?” Steph asked and Anton replied: “I would love it.”
