Brendan Cole admits 'It feels quite raw' after being axed from Strictly

Brendan Cole admits 'It feels quite raw' after being axed from Strictly

It's a little sad to wave goodbye to one of the last remaining original pros, but perhaps it's time for Brendan to move on as the newer pros have definitely injected a new lease of life into the show in recent years.

Cole has famously sparred with Strictly judges over the years, and clashed with new head judge Shirley Ballas in the last series.

The professional dancers are what set Strictly apart from similar shows and the BBC need to keep the personalities that have helped make the show the juggernaut it is.

"I will still watch the show".

"They made an editorial decision not to have me back on the show", he said on ITV's Lorraine.

"Shame on @bbcstrictly for not renewing @BrendanCole contract. he is by far and away my favourite dancer, a truly awesome credit to his profession".

Meanwhile, another fan told the star: "I absolutely loved your partnership and your Charleston is one of the all time best routines on Strictly".

Brendan, 41, who was loved by audiences for his strong opinions, emotionally revealed his 13-year stint on the BBC Saturday night hit was over today, and now fellow dancer James, 39, has vented his fury.

Campaign finance watchdog calls for investigation into Trump-Stormy Daniels payment
In an e-mail to Fortune , Cohen called the complaint "baseless" and denied that Trump misled the FEC. All of the Trump children of social media age have tweeted several times a day over the past days.

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

Expressing his disappointment about the recent decision, Brendan confessed that he found his departure hard to talk about.

I looked forward to seeing what he has to say to the judges, I looked forward to watching his antics in the Clauditorium and I looked forward to seeing the routines he created for his partners. I'm very proud of the whole show. I will never know the ins and outs.

The TV star, who danced with Charlotte Hawkins a year ago, added: "It's an editorial decision".

'I think about everyone there, and I think bloody hell, I'm not going to be part of that team, and they are still going to be there. I haven't had one of the ones that had a bit of dance experience that you can really challenge.

The BBC thanked Cole "for being part of the show since the beginning... and for the contribution he has made to its success".

'We wish him all the very best for the future'.
