The worrying update from Anton comes after he revealed that there was a “silver lining” in him that had to be away from work because of the coronavirus lock.
He explained how it meant he was able to spend more time with his wife Hannah and their twins.
The Strictly Come Dancing pro turned up The One Show at the end of March, telling hosts Alex Jones and Chris Ramsay that “it’s a wonderful thing” to spend some quality time with loved ones.
He gushed: ‘I spend every day with Hannah and the babies and it has been the most wonderful! So if we’re talking about silver lining, it’s the most wonderful thing.
What has happened? It is still unknown exactly what surgery George needed to perform, or why the surgery was necessary
“It’s just wonderful and a wonderful thing to be able to do, to spend all your time with your children and Hannah of course.”
The dancer went on to say that he is worried about the rate his little ones are growing when he said: “The kids, as you know, people say” don’t blink “because it goes so fast. And that is absolutely the case, it goes so fast! ‘
Earlier this year, Anton was overwhelmed with emotion as he described the “delicate, intense and painful” fertility journey he and his wife Hannah experienced during a performance on Loose Women.
The ballroom specialist became a dad for the first time in March 2017 when he and Hannah welcomed twins, following his partner’s long-standing battle with endometriosis.

The TV personality explained how IVF was the couple’s “only option” and collapsed as he discussed the long wait they endured before finally welcoming his children.
He said: ‘I’m happy to talk about it because it’s so incredible, to be a parent. Hannah and I left it a little later, so we are a bit older parents. ‘
He praised his wife, adding: ‘I always get emotional when I talk about Hannah. Hannah is a remarkable mother and wife. She is the most brilliant person I have ever met.
“For me as a man, and everything comes from my personal perspective on a man, I didn’t know if I wanted to have children or if it was going to be a thing for me …
“It wasn’t a subject that was at the forefront of me, but what I knew was that if I had a baby it would be with the woman I wanted to spend my entire life with and that’s Hannah.”
“Having kids with Hannah was a perfectly normal thing and obvious thing to do.”
After reflecting on Hannah’s battle with endometriosis, a condition where tissue resembling the cervix grows elsewhere, Anton revealed that she was diagnosed when she was still in her early twenties.
He said: ‘Endometriosis is a massive thing for ladies. From a man you look at and that’s one of the things you go “I don’t understand”. ‘
