Anton Du Beke wants to turn his book into a TV show and a movie.

The "Strictly Come Dancing" star wants to take his novel "One Enchanted Evening" to the big screen and the 51-year-old professional dancer would love to take on the lead role himself.

Anton told the Daily Express newspaper: "It's coming out in October and it is absolutely fabulous fiction.

"I want to have hundreds of TV rights, a movie and I might play the main part myself."

The book - which was published earlier this year - tells the story of dancers at the Buckingham Hotel in London 1936, who rub shoulders with the rich and powerful, politicians, film stars and even royalty.
