He wrote: “DISASTER!… No broadband again. Unbelievable.

“I’m so sorry, my loves – I’ll have to cancel this evening’s workout! So very sorry!!

“Please do a repeat of one of our previous workouts on the channel to keep up your momentum.

“Huge apologies again — very frustrating indeed!! Anton X.”

Anton has been leading Fit at 50 sessions over on his YouTube channel every day at 3pm during the lockdown.

The exercises also show the pre-warm up that Anton uses each time he goes out on stage.

His fans were disappointed that his internet prevented their daily routine as they responded to the news.

One said simply: “Oh dear,” alongside an unhappy face.

Another replied: “Disappointed…bl**dy broadband.”

The professional ballroom dancer recently experienced another video mishap, when his two children crashed one of his online workouts.

During one of his popular shared daily exercise routines, his young son George interrupted, followed by his daughter Henrietta.

Anton caught his breath back on the exercise mat as George wandered into the room.

The star announced: “Oh hello, we’ve got a small person venturing in.

“OK, here we go,” he sighed as Henrietta came in. “This is real life right here, isn’t it? Welcome to the family.”

Since isolation, Anton has had his hands full juggling fitness classes and his children, while also gearing up for the next season of Strictly.

In March he told presenter Steph McGovern that he believes the “pre-production” stage will be going ahead as planned.

“It’s when we get into the studio, the pros get into the studio in August.

“So hopefully we will be out of it by then, so hopefully we can get back into the studio,” he said.

“If not, the actual live stuff doesn’t start until about September.

“We’re hoping we’ll be out of it by then and back to some sort of normality.”
