Professional dancer says he can't even afford to buy a house or car


Brendan Cole has slammed Strictly Come Dancing for paying the professional dancers so much less than the judges.

The dancer, 32, says he only gets paid £30,000 for each series of the BBC1 show.

My money from Strictly just about pays the bills, he says. I dont have a car. I would like to get one, but until then Im on the Tube.

I dont even own my house. I cant afford it. I rent where I live.

The judges get paid £90,000 per series, while host Bruce Forsyth gets £450,000 for the three-month-stint.

Brendan, who is partnering Lisa Snowdon this year, has also appeared on Celebrity Love Island and Just The Two Of Us.
