rendan Cole is backing a viewer boycott of "Strictly Come Dancing".

The 41-year-old dancer left the popular BBC show in abrupt fashion last week, and the outspoken star has not been shy in expressing his disappointment at the decision, liking a number of tweets from fans who said they plan to boycott the programme.

One of the posts read: "Brendan is definitely the best. I shall not be watching Strictly anymore."

Another message on the micro-blogging website said: "Well doubt I'll be watching @ bbcstrictly this year. (sic)"

Brendan has admitted to being shocked by the decision to axe him from the show, saying he's "disappointed" by the BBC.

The New Zealander subsequently took aim at the show's bosses, admitting he was being pushed out before he felt ready to leave "Strictly".

He said: "The BBC would have been happy if I'd said I'd wanted to leave the show and have my pride intact.

"But that's not me. I don't lie. I'm definitely upset. This is not something I wanted.

"I thought I had a few more years in me. I wasn't ready to hang up the old dancing shoes."

Brendan's final appearance on the show saw him partner with "Good Morning Britain" host Charlotte Hawkins.

And the 42-year-old TV star believes that Brendan's axing will leave him with a big hole in his life.

She explained: "It's difficult for him, because for years it's been a massive part of his life."
