Strictly’s Anton du Beke thanks bosses for letting him become a judge on the show

Anton du Beke has thanked Strictly bosses for granting his showbiz wish to become a judge on the hit show.

Speaking for the first time about his new temporary role, the star said: ‘Thank goodness they gave me that job. My ego was around my ankles after getting booted off first this year.’

The ballroom dancer revealed how his wife Hannah burst into tears when he got off the phone to the show’s bosses earlier this month after being told that he would be joining the panel after competing on the show for 16 years. He is replacing Motsi Mabuse, who is in quarantine for two weeks after flying to Germany for a family issue.

‘It came out of the blue,’ said Anton. ‘We heard Motsi had to go back to Germany and I didn’t know what they were going to do. Then, last Thursday, I got a phone call when they asked me to do it. I was so, so happy.

‘I love the show. I love everything about it, so to finally get a chance to judge it was incredible. My wife cried when I told her but I also thought that it would give me something to do for the rest of the series.

‘When you’re voted off at the beginning you have nothing to do. It’s easy not to feel part of the show because you’re sitting in the audience watching everyone else dance. So thank goodness they gave me the judging job.’

Anton’s three-year-old twins George and Henrietta were also delighted. ‘My children say Daddy either dances or talks on the television, so they saw me talk last weekend and this one,’ said Du Beke.

Anton celebrated his new role by asking his tailor to make him a midnight blue velvet jacket, which he wore for the first time last night.

‘It was a bit of a treat,’ he revealed. ‘I hope it shows up OK on the television… that it doesn’t look too black.’

His role alongside Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood on the panel means he has to mark his fellow professional dancers and their partners. Does he have favourites? ‘No, I don’t. And I don’t actually have to judge the pros, it’s the celebs. And now I’m not allowed to say which of them I think will win.’

Last weekend, he delighted contestants with his positive comments, prompting fears he could be too kind. ‘I want people to feel good about themselves,’ he explained.

Anton, who is one of only three stars of Strictly to appear on the show since it began in 2004, along with host Tess Daly and Revel Horwood, is known to be the pro who often gets paired with the less able celebrities.

This year, he was booted off with former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith after two weeks. He has previously been partnered with Ann Widdecombe.

Asked about his experience dancing with the former Tory Cabinet Minister in 2010 when the public voted for them to stay, despite criticism of Widdecombe’s performances, Anton replied: ‘Well, we are still friends. She texts me each year and says, “I’m voting for you, Anton.”

‘She texted me this series too. I want to give every woman I have danced with a different experience they will remember for the rest of their lives.’

Кстати, ГУМ и ЦУМ уже традиционно обновили витрины к Новом году. Только вот с новогодним настроением пока не очень (погода тоже не способствует). Может, клип Макса Коржа исправит ситуацию? Берегите себя и близких!

What a shambles. How uncomfortable was it watching David Luiz play on after such a sickening clash of heads with Raul Jimenez?

That happened inside the first five minutes. The fact he was then removed at half-time told us everything we needed to know about player welfare in the Premier League. The impact resulted in Jimenez being put on a stretcher and taken to hospital. Luiz was hit with the same force, yet he was allowed to continue.

Arsenal staff no doubt asked the Brazilian: ‘You OK? How many fingers am I holding up?’ Then they taped him up and practically said: ‘Off you pop.’

For the rest of the half, we saw blood seeping through Luiz’s bandages. It was grotesque and emphasised how flimsy the concussion guidelines are.

Of course, Luiz said he was fine to continue. Footballers don’t want to let their team-mates down. But they need saving from themselves.

After an impact such as this, Luiz should have been taken off the pitch to be assessed, at the very least.

If concussion substitutes were allowed in the Premier League, Arsenal’s medical department could have had Luiz checked properly by a doctor. If, after a full assessment in private, Luiz had passed with flying colours, he could have continued. I’m assuming he didn’t pass a test at half-time, given he was hooked by Mikel Arteta. It’s time football wised up.

As Dr Willie Stewart tweeted on Sunday night: ‘IFAB (the game’s lawmakers) decided this week the answer was an extra sub on the bench. Arsenal-Wolves demonstrates why that is no solution at all.’

Правительство Великобритании решило увеличить объем поставок вакцин от коронавируса производства американской фармацевтической компании Moderna. Об этом сообщается на сайте британского правительства.

В общей сложности Соединенное Королевство планирует приобрести 7 млн доз вакцины. После заключения сделки с американской фармкомпанией доступ к вакцине получили примерно 3,5 млн жителей Великобритании.

Для того чтобы получить разрешение на использование в Великобритании, вакцина Moderna должна соответствовать строгим стандартам безопасности и эффективности независимого регулирующего органа по лекарственным средствам Агентства по регулированию лекарственных средств и товаров медицинского назначения (MHRA), говорится в заявлении британского правительства. В том случае, если соглашение будет одобрено, поставки вакцин в Великобританию могут начаться весной 2021 года наряду с несколькими странами Европы.

22 ноября американская фармкомпания Moderna сообщила, что цена одной дозы ее вакцины от коронавирусной инфекции будет колебаться в пределах $25-37. Глава Moderna Стефан Бансель назвал эту цену справедливой и сравнил ее со стоимостью лечения больного с COVID-19.

25 ноября Европейская комиссия утвердила шестой контракт с компанией Moderna в рамках стратегии Евросоюза по вакцинам от коронавирусной инфекции COVID-19. Он предусматривает первоначальную закупку 80 млн доз вакцины против коронавируса, а также возможность запросить еще до 80 млн доз.

Соглашение с Moderna расширит обширный портфель вакцин, которые будут производиться в Европе, включая контракты, заключенные с AstraZeneca, Sanofi-GSK, Janssen Pharmaceutica NV, BioNTech-Pfizer, а также контракт, одобренный с CureVac.

Кроме того, государства — члены ЕС смогут принять решение о передаче в дар вакцины странам с низким и средним уровнем дохода или перенаправить в другие европейские страны.
