But BBC chiefs are said to be keen to keep Anton, 55, on board.

A rise could make him the show’s highest paid professional dancer.

A source said: “The last thing bosses want is to lose him if they do welcome Bruno back.

“They appreciate it’ll be hard for him to go back to the day job.

“So they’re keen to offer a sweetener.”
