Dancer wishes he'd never lost Camilla Dallerup's love

Brendan Cole has admitted that he can’t forget ex-girlfriend and dance partner Camilla Dallerup.

The pair split after eight years together in 2004, amid reports he was involved with Strictly Come Dancing partner Natasha Kaplinsky.

But Brendan says he the TV newsreader were never together.

‘I was never involved with Natasha,’ he insists.

Nevertheless, he broke Camilla’s heart.

‘The biggest mistake of my life was losing her. I love her, but I left it too late to get her back,’ says Brendan, 31. ‘She’ll never forgive me.’

The dancer enjoys being a bit of a party animal but would give up his the social whirl for another chance with Camilla, 33.

‘I enjoy partying but it’s not as exciting as the relationship we had,’ he tells Weekend magazine. ‘There have been many times that I’ve wished I hadn’t screwed things up.’
