Brendan was axed from Strictly Come Dancing in January after the BBC decided not to renew his contract.

At the time, a spokesperson: “We’d like to thank Brendan for being part of the show since the beginning – winner of the first series – and for the contribution he has made to its success.

“We wish him all the very best for the future.”

Brendan had appeared on Strictly for 15 series and later spoke about his departure during an interview with ITV’s Lorraine.

At the time, he said: “This is quite hard to talk about. The BBC haven’t renewed my contract – we get renewed year on year – and they made an editorial decision not to have me back on the show.

“I’m a little bit in shock. I’m quite emotional, a bit raw about it.”

Meanwhile, Brendan recently became a dad for the second time after his wife Zoe gave birth to a little boy called Danté.

Earlier this week, he shared his joy at reaching a very welcomed milestone with his tot!

Brendan tweeted: “Euphoric, light at the end of the tunnel moment…

“New baby boy, 7 weeks old has just slept until 4:45, woken, cooed a little, no tears during nappy change, fed and back down in just over half an hour.

“So happy right now! #newbaby #nightfeed #gettingthere #parentlife.”
