Strictly Come Dancing judge Anton Du Beke took a break from the Strictly Live UK tour earlier today to reveal his new look on ITV’s Loose Women.

The 57-year-old is currently on the 30-date tour along with head judge Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood.

Celebrities and professional dancers from the 2023 series, including winners Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola, are also taking part.

Speaking to Loose Women panellists including Linda Robson and his former Strictly partner Ruth Langsford, Anton opened up about his recent hair transformation and joked he "wanted to be like Bobby [Brazier]".

Why has Strictly's Anton Du Beke had a hair transplant?

During his segment on the lunchtime show, he said: “It’s all mine, I just had it shifted about.

“They take it off the back and have it replanted at the front, he’s (the doctor) an absolute genius.

“I want to be like Bobby, wafting in the air being gorgeous and youthful.”

Anton announced he had been to Dublin for the procedure and has said it "immediately transformed my life".

As reported by The Mirror, he previously explained: “I started to lose my hair a few years ago… Every time I looked in the mirror it’s all I could see.

“It is a painful procedure... it doesn’t hurt as much as looking into the mirror and seeing your hairline disappearing. It does in certain aspects [dent my confidence], not as a performer.. in normal life.

"You’re either ok with it or you’re not ok with it so if you know you’re not ok with it then, for me, it was a case of do something about it. I had a period of time when I tried to do all my photos in profile… It’s sort of always on your mind. It starts to consume you."

He added: "It immediately transformed my life. All of that stuff that was going on went away. I owned it, I would talk about it... I had no interest in pretending. I wanted to go 'look, I’ve had a bit of crop rotation, I’ve ripped a bit from the back and shoved it on the front.'"
