Taking to Twitter on Friday morning, the Strictly Come Dancing star apologised as he was forced to cancel his online dance fitness class last minute. "So sorry my loves, I won't be able to take today's classes as little George has had an operation and a short stay in hospital," he tweeted. "But don't worry, he's all ok now!"

Anton and wife Hannah Summers welcomed George and his twin sister Henrietta in 2017. Meanwhile, the popular dancer rarely speaks about his family life, but in April he joined Steph McGovern on her new show and revealed that he was enjoying being on lockdown because he was spending quality time with his wife and their twins. "We've just had a third birthday two days ago, the twins are three, we had a party and it has been lovely. We're also trying to potty train them, trying to get them out of their nappies, and Henrietta is a little bit better at it than George. I think that is normal, boys usually take a little bit longer. Might as well get them into little pants and knickers at this stage, we have nothing better to do," he joked.

Anton added: "It's the best time. You're always so busy, you're always off so this time has been wonderful because we are just together. Hannah, me and the babies, we are just together and having the best time. This has just been beautiful, I am loving every second of just spending time with them and being with them and being all together and doing stuff."
