Strictly Come Dancing is preparing for the big release of Series 17. Fans were excited to hear that an experienced pro will be paired with actress Emma Barton this year. In series 16, Anton and partner Susannah Constantine were 15th, eliminated in the second episode, so Anton will be expecting a stronger race this year!
What is Anton Du Beke's net worth?
Professional dancers at Strictly earn about £ 30,000 per season.
However, seasoned pros like Anton, who has worked in all 16 Strictly seasons, will earn more at the £ 35,000 per season.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, this salary, like Anton's other TV endeavors, singing and writing, earned the dancer a tidy sum.

Estimates are about £ 8 million for Anton's total equity.
While this is certainly no derision, there have been problems in the past with some of the professional dancers feeling unhappy with their pay package compared to Strictly judges.
The dancers work up to 14 hours a day training their famous partners and are responsible for choreographing the group's weekly dances.
Judges can earn up to £ 250,000 per season.
The dancers were furious in 2012 when they received a £ 500 raise and the judges a £ 20,000 raise.
Brendan Cole – who reportedly earns about £ 35,000 – told Now magazine: “My Strictly money almost pays the bills. I do not have a car
“I would like to get one, but by then I'm on the subway. I don't even own my house. I can not afford. I rent where I live.
However, judge Bruno Tonioli is not sympathetic to the dancers.

Each celebrity gets a standard pay of £ 25,000 to sign up, but if they can stay on the dance floor by the end of October, it will increase to £ 40,000.
Any star who reaches the quarterfinals sees their rate rise to £ 60,000; That number rises to £ 75,000 if it lasts an extra week and reaches the semifinals.
In the meantime, the Strictly winner will receive £ 100,000.
