Emma Barton is taking a break from EastEnders to take part in the Strictly live tour

Strictly Come Dancing star Emma Barton confirms she is taking a break from EastEnders. Emma has made it to the semi-final of the BBC dance show with partner Anton du Beke

Emma has previously spoken about how she juggles her Strictly rehearsals with filming for EastEnders, telling the Sun:"I guess there have been weeks at the beginning of the competition where we have had more time. You still want that extra day. You still want those few extra hours. You just have to work with what you are given," she said."I work really hard. Anton works really hard. I have said this before, I am on two of the biggest TV shows on the BBC. I'm a very lucky girl."

Emma and Anton have wowed viewers and the judging panel with their spectacular dance routines – and have even been tipped for victory by Shirley Ballas. Appearing on Sunday Brunch at the weekend, Shirley conceded that Anton hasn't fared well in past series of Strictly, but said she feels this year he has a partner capable of claiming the Glitterball trophy."He's creative and he goes out there and gives his best, and I think he's shone with this young lady, Emma," she said."What I feel he's done this time is take it really seriously and he's shown the audience exactly what he can do… I wouldn't be surprised if he's in the final and maybe, possibly could win. We will have to see!"
