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."
