Strictly Come Dancing favourite Vito Coppola seemingly has his eye on the judging panel as he admitted he’d like to follow in Anton Du Beke’s footsteps.

Speaking exclusively to at Sunday’s Pride Of Britain Awards, the 31-year-old dancer said it would be “a big dream” to become a judge on the BBC programme.

He continued: “But I feel like, you know I’m still at the beginning.

“I just came from Italy so I don’t know when, but I mean they’re like the best example to follow, so it would be a pleasure one day.

“But now let’s keep our feet on the ground and I’m still on my second year!”

This year, Vito has been partnered with former Coronation Street star Ellie Leach.

Speaking about the reaction they’ve received from the public, he admitted: “I didn’t expect so much appreciation from the public.

“Ellie has never danced before, not any kind of dance, so everything is for the first time – every step, and they know it.

“And they’ve been in touch with us and we are so, so grateful.”

Strictly Come Dancing has now lost two contestants as Nikita Kanda and Gorka Marquez became the second couple of the series to be voted out.
