As things hot up between Strictly's Lisa Snowdon and Brendan, his girlfriend's not happy


Strictly Come Dancing contestants and their dance partners let off steam after the show on a Saturday night by going out partying.

But there’s one usually gregarious figure who’s been conspicuous by his absence for the last few weeks: Brendan Cole.

‘After the show, everyone heads to a members bar in the West End of London, but Brendan hasn’t been to any of the parties,’ says our Strictly source.

‘Everyone’s saying that he isn’t allowed out any more.’

Brendan, 32, has been dating model Zoe Hobbs, 26, since March and friends say he thinks she’s ‘the one’.

But with his reputation as a ladies’ man, Zoe’s becoming jealous of his glamorous dance partner Lisa Snowdon, 37, and likes to sit in on rehearsals.

It’s not easy with Zoe watching them,’ says our source. Brendan’s madly in love with her, but she knows what he’s like. He’s got close to his dance partners before.’
