"I know our meet-ups have become part of a new routine for many of us and it's going to be a strange week without them," he added. "Commitments have come in which are starting to clash with our timeslots, and to be on the safe side I think it's best I cancel this week's livestreams now rather than risk last minute messages during the week."

As soon as I have a clearer view for the following week I'll post an update to let you know."

"Is it Strictly? We wish," replied one follower, while another remarked: "Thank you for all your time during the past few months. The classes have been amazing. It’s great to have so many to go back over. Best of luck with your commitments."

The cancellation comes almost one month after he dropped out of his daily session to be with his three-year-old son George, who was rushed to hospital for surgery.

Shortly after the hospital visit, Anton spoke to HELLO!, revealing that he found an abscess on his little boy's leg. "We weren't sure if he had been bitten but it suddenly became this massive thing," he shared. "I showed it to my doctor on Facetime and George got whisked straight to hospital, where he stayed for two nights."

"Hannah was there the first day and night, then I took over. The general anaesthetic part was scary but George was amazing and so calm. The doctors thought he was an absolute superstar. They are very happy with his recovery."
