Anton Du Beke
The charming and witty Strictly star dances his way into our podcast to talk about his latest book, We’ll Meet Again. This heartbreaking and romantic fourth instalment of Anton Du Beke’s wonderful series is set in the glamorous Buckingham Hotel and sees newlyweds Raymond and Nancy face separation as the staff of the hotel are called up to service when WWII breaks out. Anton talks about his research for the book and shares his best-loved Christmas memories…
