Pressure on BBC to axe Anton Du Beke after racist slur

Pressure on the BBC to relieve dancer Anton Du Beke of his duties is mounting after complaints surrounding his racist comment have quadrupled.

The dancer - who is tipped to replace Bruce Forsyth as the show's host - made a public apology for his comment, in which he said there was "no racist intent whatsoever ".

Despite this, the BBC continues to be swamped with requests to remove Anton from the show.

"It is unforgiveable. The BBC needs to listen," a campaigner says.
