Strictly’s Anton Du Beke joins Giovanni Pernice as they explore Sicily in a new series

Anton and Giovanni: Adventures in Sicily FIRST LOOK: Explore the Italian stars’ beloved homeland in a new three-part travel series.

They are both famous for appearing on Strictly Come Dancing.

But Anton Du Beke and Giovanni Pernice are taking a break from the dance floor as they star in a new travel show to air on BBC One in 2023.

In the three-part series, dancer Giovanni, 31, will introduce the Strictly judge and his friend Anton, 56, to their beloved home in Sicily.

Giovanni will be Anton’s guide as the pair discover what this buzzing Mediterranean island has to offer.

The couple will explore everything from traditional cuisine to famous landmarks and indulge in a tango or two.

Anton said: “When I first heard about this trip, I couldn’t resist. What’s not to love? It’s all my favorite things, good food, beautiful country, spending time in the sunshine with Giovanni. Amazing!’

Giovanni agrees, saying, ‘To say it was a dream project would be an understatement! Taking Anton to my beloved home in Sicily was simply Bellissima!’.

“We danced, laughed and had the time of our lives with great culture, food and company. We can’t wait for our UK audience to join us. See you in the Sicilian sun! Ciao, p.’

Anton joined the BBC dance show in 2004 and was promoted to full-time judge in 2021, winning the BBC’s Best Judge award last week.

Meanwhile, Giovanni joined the lineup during the show’s 13th season in 2015, and the pair have since toured their Him & Me show together.

BBC Creative Director Mel Ballack said:“Audiences will see Anton and Gio in a completely different light as they travel across Sicily.”

He continued: “While watching the boys enjoy and enjoy all that Sicily has to offer, viewers will see their amazing friendship grow as they learn new things about each other… including things they may not know about!”.
