Anton Du Beke Blasts Strictly Come Dancing 'Mole' Responsible For Leaking Result Each Week

"It gets on my nerves..."

Strictly Come Dancing judge Anton Du Beke has urged the supposed “mole” responsible for leaking the eliminated contestant each weekend to stop.

While Strictly airs every Saturday and Sunday night, only the former is actually a live broadcast, with the weekly results show actually pre-recorded the night before.

Because of this, the result of each elimination is usually leaked online ahead of time, if Strictly fans know where to look for it.

However, this also means that some Strictly viewers can have the result spoiled for them without wanting to.

Speaking on Tuesday’s edition of Loose Women, Anton admitted the leaks “get on my nerves”, telling whoever is responsible: “Please stop. I don’t know who you are but please stop. Don’t do it. Why would you do it?”

“Nobody knows who it is,” he continued. “The audience… we’re all in it together.

“Knowledge is power and all that sort of stuff, everyone has an agreement we won’t say anything, so I don’t know who does it.”

Anton added: “They call you a spoiler for a reason – because you’re a spoiler. Don’t do it… Try to stop spoiling it please, because people don’t want to know.”
