Following last weekend's dramatic performance, the dancing duo have given an update on their future in the dance contest...
It’s been an eventful time for Brendan Cole and his dance partner Anastacia on Strictly Come Dancing.
What with the rumours that the dancing duo weren’t getting along (which Brendan quickly cleared up), Anastacia ripping her mastectomy scars mid-dance a few weeks ago and Brendan’s hospital visit last weekend, they’ve quickly become one of the most talked about couples on the BBC show.
And it only seems to be getting more dramatic.
Taking a spot on last night’s Strictly – It Takes Two, Brendan dropped a pretty heavy hint about what might be in store on the next performance show.
He confessed to host Zoe Ball: ‘I’ll let you into a little secret.
‘We have the lovely Gorka stepping in for me for a few days whilst I am trying to recover and beat this chest infection.’
But don’t worry, despite the fact that he’s clearly still suffering from the lung infection that was plaguing him on Saturday night, Brendan was able to make light of the situation.
He continued: ‘I don’t know how happy I am about it.
‘He’s Spanish, good-looking, he’s got a body that’s pretty much the best on the show…’

Well, we’re glad to see you in good spirits, B.
Anastacia went along with the joke, saying of rehearsals: ‘It was awful today, I had an awful rehearsal.’
Brendan added: ‘I kind of get the feeling it’s going to go downhill for me from here.’
We doubt that the Left Outside Alone singer will be moving on from her dance partner that quickly, but what does this replacement mean for the next live show?
Well, the professional dancer revealed that he’s been ordered by doctors to rest until at least Thursday or Friday. So it could spell out a last-minute call for Saturday’s show.
Fans were quick to rush to social media to wish him well.
We too wish you a speedy recovery, Brendan.
