Professional ballroom dancer Anton du Beke was a guest on the The Morning sofa, to talk to Philip and Holly about his book.
But instead of paying attention to Anton du Beke’s interview, which included information about Strictly partner Emma Barton, they were more concerned about his hair.
Instead of his usual dark brown hair, viewers noticed it appeared to be jet black, much darker than his usual style, leading people to assume he’d dyed it.
Before appearing on the show, Anton uploaded a photo of himself meeting Alfie the pug, showing off his darker hairdo in the process.
Fans weren’t too impressed with his darker shade, with one joking ‘Anton’s gone goth!’
Another joked that Anton was ‘teaming up with Dulux to make his own range of paint’… but it was only available in dark black!
A third compared his new style to ‘a Lego helmet’, adding ‘I’m 28 and almost a silver fox’.
During his discussion with Holly and Phillip, Anton confessed he hadn’t had a chance to practice with Emma Barton this week due to her EastEnders commitments.
Apparently Emma had been shooting scenes on Monday and Tuesday, which means that they only had the training room on Wednesday.
However the professional dancer was impressed with Emma’s commitment. Anton said, “She’s doing really well. Constantly working on EastEnders. A busy schedule there. Doing two massive jobs.”
“This week has been a struggle. She was filming Monday and Tuesday. We only got into he studio on Wednesday. Before you know it it’s going to be Saturday. She’s such a hard worker.”
Despite the lack of practice time, the dancer remained optimistic and said that he felt the next dance was well-suited to Emma’s personal strengths.
He also admitted he felt happy about progressing further in the competition, adding, “It’s a different story for me. We’re doing great dances. I can put away the humorous side now and do something else.
“As a choreographer, dancer a performer. It gives me a new feel which is lovely.”
Anton du Beke and Emma Barton return to the dance floor this weekend.
