Anton Du Beke plans to ring in 2022 by dancing with his family at home.
The Strictly Come Dancing professional, who made his debut on the show's judging panel this year, imagines he and his wife Hannah Summers will be at home with their four-year-old twins George and Henrietta on Friday. He intends to turn the night into a New Year's Eve celebration by putting on some tunes and having a dance.
"We'll be at home, I'd wager. The babies are only four-and-a-half. Knowing them, we'll end up putting some Strictly-esque music on and they'll have us dancing around the living room, till they drop," he told Best magazine of his New Year's Eve plans.
"They have a wonderful relationship, George and Henrietta, such a tight bond and gorgeous personalities. It's just pure joy to spend time with them. I can think of no better way of seeing in the new year."
Anton proposed to Hannah in 2016 and they secretly tied the knot in April 2017, just weeks after their twins were born.
The dancer replaced Bruno Tonioli on the Strictly panel for this year's series and his judging style was well received by viewers, leaving many fans wondering if he will become a mainstay.
His fellow judge Craig Revel Horwood recently told the magazine that he hopes Anton's reign as judge continues, saying, "Anton's a great addition, he knows the process of working with celebrities inside-out, he's been there... Armed with all that information, he's showing great empathy for the celebs - he's more lenient than me. And he's funny. Long may it continue, he's a good egg, Anton."
