Charlotte Hawkins Talks About The Sad Truth Behind Brendan Cole's Axing, From 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Brendan Cole shot into prominence after winning the maiden edition of Strictly Come Dancing in 22004. Since then, he has been a regular feature in all 15 series that have been broadcast.
Born in New Zealand, Cole specializes in Latin American dancing. In 1996 he made his first appearance as a contestant on Come Dancing. His partner was Danish born Camilla Dallerup. The duo would stage a reprise in 2007 at the first ever Eurovision Dance Contest.
Brendan also produces his own show, Brendan Cole - All Night Long. It had a pretty successful run in theaters for three months starting February of 2017.
Before joining Strictly Come Dancing, Brendan was already a world recognized dance, even ranking among the top 12 Latin American dancers in the world. His ambition was to become the World Champion. But the story changed in 2004.
