Before getting hitched, the dancer had previously hinted he believed Hannah could be ‘The One’.

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.”

Rumours began to circulate the pair had married in secret when Hannah was spotted wearing a very sparkly engagement ring and wedding band, during a visit to the Chelsea Flower Show in May 2017.

But a spokesman for the dancer later confirmed to MailOnline the pair had got married in secret following the birth of their baby twins.

Anton said: “I sort of sprung it on her. It was our fifth year of being together and it felt like the moment.”

On the topic of fatherhood, the dancer told OK!

He added: “They have two different personalities already, I can’t even tell you, my heart just explodes every time I see them, I’ll miss them when I’m on the show, I miss them all the time.”
