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.

"I hope my readers will be as enchanted by my book as they would be by a perfect 10 for one of my routines."

Eleanor Dryden, publishing director of Bonnier Zaffre, said: "Anton has been enchanting us for years on the dance floor and now it's time to bring his storytelling talent to the world.

"He's as charming and creative off stage as he is on it and we could not be more excited to be working with him on this wonderful novel.

"I guarantee it will sweep you off your feet."
