  • Brendan Cole axed from Strictly

"They've made the decision, I respect it completely, I don't like it very much, but I respect it completely and I will still watch the show, I still want to support my friends that are in it".

Another posted: "Disgraceful! @BrendanCole is a massive part of Strictly!".

He added: 'It's a recent decision, I've always known this day will come....

Today the news broke that Brendan Cole has not had his contract renewed for the next series.

"It's an editorial decision".

'I'm a very strong character within the show, I had my strong views (but) I would have preferred to have made the decision myself, ' he said.

But now the 41-year-old has revealed that he has been dropped from the show by the BBC.

Being cut from the show could be due to the rows he had in the last series with new head judge, Shirley Ballas.

"I haven't had one of the ones that had a bit of dance experience which you can really challenge, like in the old days when I was young and handsome".

Brendan told Lorraine he would like to continue on Strictly if he had the choice.

"I'm sure I'll never know the ins and outs". However, I've had an incredible time as part of the Strictly family - the team are brilliant which helps make it the best show on TV. I'm very proud of the whole show.

The dancer's most recent partner on the show, Charlotte Hawkins, has tweeted how sad she is about the decision. What an end of an era - he's been such an integral part of the show since it started 15 series ago. No disrespect to them.

"We wish him all the very best for the future", the corporation said in a statement.

But Brendan's departure feels a little different.

Brendan won the competition at the first time of asking when he was partnered with Natasha Kaplinsky. He never followed up his win with another, but came third overall with Lisa Snowdon in series six and fourth with Sophie Ellis-Bextor in series 11.
