Brian sparked speculation he might want out of the show earlier this week when he was heard telling his professional partner Amy Dowden "I've got another week to go ain't I?" while on spin-off show "It Takes Two" after she warned him not to injure himself.

A Strictly insider told The Sun newspaper: "Brian clearly sees his involvement in the show as pretty short-term."

As well as Brian, Reverend Richard Coles is also enjoying his time on the show after shedding a stone due to the tough training schedule.

A studio source told the publication: "Richard has lost inches off his waist and the costume department have had to take in several of his outfits. He's delighted."
