Brendan Cole has apparently said Lisa Snowdon is a better dance partner than Kelly Brook.

The Strictly Come Dancing romeo was filmed bickering in rehearsal with 28-year-old Kelly on last year’s show but is loving sharing the dance floor with Lisa, host of Living TV’s Britain’s Next Top Model.

Brendan told The Sun: “Lisa’s a super dancer. She’s absolutely fabulous in rehearsals, she’s even better than Kelly last year – and so glam.”

A BBC insider reportedly added: “It’s no secret Brendan and Kelly didn’t get on.”

Brendan got a reputation as a ladies man after the first series of the BBC1 dance show when he won with celebrity partner, newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, wowing judges with their chemistry.

They sparked rumours they were dating as they both split from their respective partners at the time.

Brendan is apparently delighted to be dancing with former model and TV presenter Lisa for the sixth series of Strictly.

He told the paper: “Lisa’s a strong woman and I can work with that. She’s always ringing me up to get tips.”

But Lisa reportedly said: “I only want him for his dance moves.”
