SCD professionals Anton and Brendan are in a bitter battle to replace departing judge Len Goodman.
The hit BBC's show's 72 year old head judge announced yesterday he was quitting after this year's series, setting up a grudge match between the pair.
Anton 49 believes he has the backing of Lena and former host Sir Bruce Forsyth for the high-profile role.
But Brendan 40, thinks he has the right experience after being a judge on the New Zealand version of the show.
A Strictly source revealed: 'Anton and Brendan have been with Strictly from the start and have been waiting for this opportunity'.
Ladbrokes yesterday made Anton 2/1 favorite to join Bruno, Craig, and Darcy with Kiwi Brendan at 20/1.
A BBC source said 'Everyone knows Anton and Brandan want the job desperately. They're both very knowledgeable and popular with fans.'
Len is set to move to L.A. after taking up a £750k a series offer to return to Dancing with the Stars.
A pal said he prefers the warmer climate of Los Angeles.


Taken from the Sun,.... so must be true.

I prefer Brendan to Anton as a pro dancer
so in many ways I'd be sorry if he got the job.

Not sure where the best place for Anton is...

I'd let him go as a pro dancer and give him a
slot on ITT plus demos with Jo Clifton.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

I didn't realise Brendan was 40!
Anton soon to be 50 (if it is correct on Wicky!!)- How much longer can he carry on dancing (i use dancing here in the loose terms, lol )

my Bro is 53 and Anton is at least his age

Neither for me - Brendan is ok but not of high enough dance calibre for me need a judge only one of ex pros on show who is a judge and judges all over the world is Karen

I want someone new to the show with the right credentials

Sadly I think his judging would be on par with his dancing.
