Anton & Giovanni

The Strictly Come Dancing stars unite for a UK tour

Both Anton Du Beke and Giovanni Pernice rose to fame as professional dancers on the hit BBC competition Strictly Come Dancing.

Du Beke joined the show upon its launch in 2004. From then, the ballroom and Latin dancer partnered with the likes of sporting coach Judy Murray and supermodel Jerry Hall, and first reached the final with newscaster Katie Derham in 2015. He repeated the feat with stage and screen actress Emma Barton four years later. It was however his comedic partnerships that secured him the hearts of the nation, not least reaching the quarter final with former MP Ann Widdicombe in 2010.

Born in Sicily, Giovanni Pernice joined Du Beke on Strictly Come Dancing in 2015, quickly making his mark by reaching the final with actress Georgia May Foote in his first series. In 2017, he repeated that success with presenter Debbie McGee, and again in 2018 with Steps member Faye Tozer. Pernice's professional achievements include claiming the top prize at the Italian Championships in 2012.

In 2020, Anton Du Beke and Giovanni Pernice announced that they would hit the road together across the UK in June and July 2021. It was revealed that the Him & Me tour would be directed by Alan Burkitt, who had previously choreographed Strictly Come Dancing, So You Think You Can Dance? and the Fascinating Aida UK tour.
