Ruth Langsford, Susannah Constantine and Emma Barton completed the list, alongside last year’s partner Jacqui Smith.
His highest average score for a season of Strictly came in series 17, with Emma Barton.
EastEnders star Emma and Anton managed an average of over 31 – way up on his lowest, 12, with Susannah Constantine.
Lesley Garrett was second with 29 average points. The pair came third in series one.
It has not been all plain sailing for Anton, though.
He has partnered with eight celebs who’ve brought him an average of less than 20, which represents 50 percent of the total points available.
Susannah was lowest, with Nancy and Ann not far behind at 15.6 and 16.2. Jacqui Smith managed 16.7, lower than Jerry Hall’s 18 and Esther Rantzen’s 18.7.
Kate Garraway and Judy Murray managed 19.
Anton may have been a Strictly veteran, but it took him 17 years to land a perfect “10” from one of the judges.
Talk about hard work paying off!
He also waited 17 years and then 14 “10s” came along in one series.
In week 9, at Blackpool, dancing an American Smooth with Emma Barton, he scored his first ever 10s.
He followed it up with three “10s” a fortnight later, and then managed another in the semi-final.
In the final, Emma and Anton bagged scores of 39, 38 and 39, with multiple 10s cast throughout the evening.
Anton’s lowest ever score came with Susanna, who got him 12 points for a Foxtrot and 12 points for a Samba.
Anton also scored this paltry amount with Anne Widdecombe’s Salsa, and Nancy’s Waltz.
