Now the professional boxer has hit out at having to compete with celebs who are trained dancers, and think nothing of whipping out a snazzy twirl whilst novice Anthony is starting right from the beginning.

According to the Daily Star, Anthony explained: "I'm gutted to be out. I'm not the best but I'm not the worst. But being a novice, it's hard to do well.

"I'd never danced before. I've not done ballet or been in a boyband or been a pop star."

Anthony also had an injured shoulder to contend with, and said on the night he felt it had hindered his performance. His routine was criticised by the judges, who described his paso doble as "more of a stampede than a sweep" - that cutting remark was delivered by Craig Revel Horwood, naturally.

But Anthony pointed out he had some stiff competition from a few other celebs in particular:

"When you're up against Jay McGuiness who's done ballet, and Helen George who's done ballet and Peter Andre who's been a pop star for as long as I've been alive, it's very, very hard to beat all those guys."

Yep, we wouldn't fare well against that line-up either!
