Anton, 50, and 41-year-old Hannah became first-time parents last week, with the TV star announcing the arrival of his son and daughter in a sweet Instagram post. "Oh my! The little dancing feet have arrived. Mum and twins are perfect and dad is ridiculously excited," he told his followers. Anton was quickly inundated with messages of congratulations – including words of support from some fellow Strictly stars. Ore Oduba wrote: "Who's the daddy!!!?

So far, the names of the twins have not been revealed – although Anton previously joked he would love to call the babies Anton and Antoinette. He told This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: "I've had my eye on a couple of names but it's met with a cold stare every time I mention it. I thought Anton and Antoinette… I think they're lovely names but I didn't get a good response!"
