Strictly Come Dancing: Brendan Cole promised to keep quiet this weekend following his spat with Shirley Ballas [BBC]
The professional dancer is well known for his sharp tongue and for speaking out against the judges over their critics.
Speaking about the routine, the new judge – who has replaced Len Goodman – said: “It’s definitely a little bit better…” to which Brendan remarked: “A little bit?”
However, Shirley remained by her comment as she looked down from her glasses and sassily said: “Yeah definitely just a little bit Brendan, unfortunately.”

The audience were left shocked by the comment as they reacted, but things got even more awkward as the judge continued with: “We’ve established that there is no rise and fall in tango, you have to make a concrete decision not to use rise and fall.”
However, Brendan stopped Shirley in her tracks as he said: “I’m really sorry but there was no rise and fall in that…”
To which the judge replied: “You should play it back, Brendan, because there is,” while he snapped: “I will my dear, I will.”
And it wasn’t long until Bruno got involved with the on-air spat, as he said: “I think she’s right Brendan, you should be more respectful to a lady!”

However, Brendan refused to back down as he replied: “I am respectful, but when we do a tango and there’s no rise and fall then I’m not going to stand there and go: ‘Shirley, I’ll do that.’
And now the feisty dancer has promised to keep his mouth shut ahead of the next show.
