Brendan Cole 'in shock' at being dropped from Strictly Come Dancing

Brendan Cole 'in shock' at being dropped from Strictly Come Dancing”

Speaking about the potential reason for his departure, Brendan said: "I'm sure I'll never know the ins and outs".

Fans of the show expressed their disappointment on social media, and Hawkins paid tribute to Cole's time on the series.

"They made an editorial decision to not have me back on the show".

"I'm going to miss dancing with her, I've had one of the best Strictly's in 15 years and it's hard for me to even say that and I feel really emotional".

Draghi spoke after the bank left its stimulus levels and interest rates unchanged. SPX gained 1.71 points, or 0.06 percent, to 2,839.25 and the Nasdaq Composite .

Meanwhile, a Strictly spokesman wrote: "We'd like to thank @BrendanCole for being part of the show since the beginning - victor of the first series - and for the contribution he has made to its success". What an end of an era - he's been such an integral part of the show since it started 15 series ago.

A spokesman for the One show thanked Cole for "being part of the show since the beginning" and contributing to its success. "I've always known this day would come". "I like being a character on the show".

He added: "It's an editorial decision".

Whether it was the rumours surrounding his relationship with Natasha Kaplinsky, his back chat to the judges or storming off set when the judges had torn into his celebrity partner - his personality and passion for what he did got the viewers talking just as much as his superb dancing.

But it's an honor. "That team played pretty well on Sunday, so I think it's worth it", said Broncos head coach Vance Joseph . Whether or not he can handle that pressure still remains to be seen, but he seems to beleive it shouldnt be an issue.

I fleetingly warmed to him when he partnered Sophie Ellis-Bextor but I won't miss him when the next series comes round. 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.

The New Zealand born dancer has been on the road for his own dance show and only recently appeared on the Dancing with the Stars here in Ireland.

And from the outpouring of support from fans, fellow dancers and former partners, I'm not alone in thinking this.

The most recent series saw him paired with Good Morning Britain presenter, Charlotte Hawkins. No disrespect to them.
