Sad to hear the news that long time professional dancer Brendan Cole will no longer be taken part in the show. Brendan has taken part in every series since the show began and won the first show with partner Natasha Kaplinsky. He has given us some fantastic routines and been the source of much of the shows entertainment with his outspoken manner, comebacks to the judges and cheeky antics up in the clauditorium. He will be sorely missed and the show won’t be the same without him, but I will look back on his time on the show and see how much fun he brought to the show. Goodbye Brendan and good luck in the next part of your journey.
Charlotte Hawkins & Brendan Cole – Jive – 19 (4,5,5,5)
As hard as it was to see Charlotte go, she still made too many mistakes and didn’t look comfortable at all doing this dance. Which is a shame because I thought the had a lot of potential. However the dance was better than her previous and she had improved greatly since Week one.
Sad to see Charlotte go, she had improved since her first dance and was looking really promising in ballroom. Unfortunately I think the nerves got to her a couple of times. Having said that she was enjoyable to watch and you could see that she loved being on the show.
From the rehearsal, I am really worried about this jive. I love this dance but her rehearsals looked very lack luster and her hands were just flayling. I am sorry but this really was not a good dance! Her feet were all over the place and it just seemed as if she was kicking them about like she was playing football. You could tell that she couldn’t keep up with Brendan and even Brendy was attempting to slow himself down for her! She did look like she was having fun but it just wasn’t a good dance – I feel bad for her but it just didn’t work, her legs weren’t good and her arms weren’t good… I feel bad for her on this dance and also the fact that Shirley got her name wrong!
