The BBC is reportedly considering giving Anton Du Beke a permanent job on the Strictly Come Dancing panel.
Bruno Tonioli has now been absent from the panel for the last two series, with coronavirus travel restrictions meaning that he decided to remain in the US to appear on Dancing With The Stars instead.
Du Beke has been part of the professional dance lineup since the very first series of Strictly but has made the step up to the panel this year to fill in for Tonioli.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, however, producers are now mulling whether to make the arrangement permanent.
"The BBC are in a real quandary here," a source told the newspaper. "Anton has been so loved and such a pro, so it seems wrong to get rid of him. It seems disloyal, but then it was Bruno's job.
"It would be going a bit far to suggest there is a row going on, but there is certainly much divided opinion over what they want for next year's show."
The current series of Strictly wraps up in two weeks' time.
