Who is Anton Du Beke’s wife?
Hannah Summers, 46, is Strictly Star Antons and the Chief Marketing Officer of cellphone security company AdaptiveMobile.
The couple met at a golf club in 2011 after following her to the bathroom at a formal dinner.
Speaking to the That Gaby Roslin podcast last year, Anton revealed he didn’t make the best first impression.
He explained: “Towards the end of dinner she gets up to leave the table and I was like, yeah, here’s my chance, I’ll go and talk to her.
“I never thought about it enough though because when you’re at a dinner like this there’s very little reason to get up and leave the table, I basically followed her to the powder room. Brilliant.
‘She walks in, I’m three steps behind her, I’m walking, ah, while you’re here I might as well walk, so I dove into the men’s room, then I came out of the men’s room, and then I was like, oh , that could be she went back to the table and I missed my chance, should I wait here, she might still be in here, should I ask someone to check – I can’t, it’s ridiculous.
“As I’m thinking about it, she comes out of the bathroom, I’m standing outside the women’s room, she stops and she looks at me and says, ‘Were you waiting for me in the bathroom?’ And I went, could have been, and she says, ‘mad’ and walks away.’
