Brendan Cole confirmed the news that he has been dropped from BBC's Strictly Come Dancing after fourteen years on the show.

Arlene's comments about Brendan come after she was axed from the beloved ballroom show herself in 2009, after six series.

He added: "Zoe trusts me but does she like it? No".

"I was disappointed but it was expected because I'm a dancer on the show".

Keeping things light-hearted during the interview, host Piers Morgan joked Charlotte was the reason behind Brendan's axe, as his lowest scoring partner in fifteen years.

"Strictly certainly changed the game [for professional dancers]".

Brendan could follow in the footsteps of fellow former Strictly professional Ola Jordan, who starred on the show in 2016.

Brendan broke down when he revealed he had been cut from the show on Tuesday, during a live television interview with Lorraine Kelly. The haven't renewed my contract.

He was visibly emotional as he said: "This is quite hard to talk about.The BBC haven't renewed my contract - we get renewed year on year - and they made an editorial decision not to have me back on the show". I have had 15 incredible series on the show, they are a great team. It's an editorial decision.

"I've been very lucky". "You walk on to the stage and know the proper theatre history there; every name in United Kingdom showbusiness has been there so it's an honour to put yourself on that list".

'They've always tolerated his rows with the judges as it creates drama and acceptable headlines but this was a step too far'.

"He is now the only dancer who has been around since the very first series, but he's a big character and the show wouldn't feel the same without him".

"I've never been contracted for more than one year". Or the fact he'd reportedly tried out for her head judge role but not got it?

In his first interview since he was axed from the show earlier this week, the New Zealand-born dancer denied his close partnership with the newsreader - who was eventual victor of series one - had impacted his relationship with then partner Camilla Dallerup, who also appeared on the show. We wish him all the very best for the future'.

Ballas and Cole had an awkward exchange following Cole's tango with Charlotte Hawkins, when Cole hit back as Ballas critiqued their routine and he told the judge: "I'm really sorry, but there was no rise and fall".

Cole did not mention the judges but said of the dancers: "I'll miss my gang, the pros on the show, they're a phenomenal bunch".

Pledging his respect to her, Brendan explained: "I do respect her but I just don't agree".

However, Brendan told the Daily Mail he'd just been trying to defend Charlotte as he felt she deserved more praise for the dance.
