Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke has married his long-term partner Hannah Summers. The couple, who have been together since 2007, recently decided to tie the knot, following the birth of their twins in March. Reports of a possible wedding emerged on Monday when Hannah was spotted wearing an engagement ring and a wedding band while attending the Chelsea Flower Show with Anton.

The 50-year-old dancer had previously hinted that marriage could be on the cards. Asked about his other half, he told the Mirror: "She's just perfect. I love her above all things. Will we marry? Maybe next year. We're very happy." He added: "Performing was the 'woman' in my life, if you like, but then Hannah came along. She's just perfect. She's very beautiful, clever, but also really kind."
