Brendan has participated in every series of Strictly and he has partnered some of the most stunning celebrities, including presenter/actress Kelly Brook and supermodel Rachel Hunter.

Since Brendan Cole was first invited to take part in Strictly, his stage and celebrity career has taken off, including a stage debut in pantomime, guest spots on celebrity TV shows, corporate event appearances and motivational speaking. Now a worldwide phenomenon, Brendan Cole was a member of the judging panel of the New Zealand version of the series (Dancing with the Stars) for four years, where his obvious expertise and forthright manner earned him the reputation of being “the Simon Cowell of the judges”.
Brendan Cole has appeared on television shows about subjects that range from sport to cookery. He’s a good sport but makes no apologies for wanting to win!
Born in 1976 in Christchurch, New Zealand, Brendan Cole was a mischievous six-year old when he first studied ballroom and Latin American dance, fast becoming junior and youth champion, and going on to win international competitions.
Travel brought him to London, where the vibrant dance scene convinced him to make the capital his base for work, study and teaching dance. From here he toured worldwide, competing in amateur competitions. Turning professional in 2000, Brendan Cole and his then dance partner Camilla Dallerup became the New Zealand and Asian Open professional champions, reached the semis of The International, United Kingdom Open, British Open and World Championships.
Throughout his career Brendan Cole has been involved in choreographing stage shows and various performances for dancers worldwide.
Brendan Cole has had his own UK tour since 2009 where he is host, choreographer and song and dance man to packed houses, rapturous applause and fabulous reviews. January 2013 saw the launch of a new and exciting version of the tour, Licence to Thrill, with Brendan and the team visiting 26 venues across the country, including London and Ireland for the first time.
In Summer 2012 Brendan launched the Brendan Cole Dance Academy, offering children from the ages of 7 – 16 the chance to enjoy the energy and excitement of dance. Born from his desire to give children the chances that he had when he was younger, the camps are designed to inspire kids and give them confidence, whilst getting them active and fit.
