Brendan Cole insists he's happy to work with anyone on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The professional dancer - who has previously been paired with Kelly Brook, Fiona Phillips, Lisa Snowdon and Natasha Kaplinsky - says it doesn't bother him who he's partnered with because he loves doing the BBC One show so much.

He said: "I honestly don't know, it's a closely guarded secret but I'm always happy to work with anyone. It's part of the show's challenge."

Brendan - who is expecting his first child with wife Zoe - has been on the show since it started in 2004 but he says he has no intention of quitting in the near future as he's still enjoying it.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's a brilliant show and I still love doing it as much now as I did when I started. If that changes, who knows, but for now I'm pleased to be a part of it.

"I still can't believe I'm getting ready to do it for the 10th time. So much has happened in those eight years but the time has just flown by.

"It's done so much to raise the profile of dance - to show people not just what we do but the training and hard work that's involved and how great it can make you feel."
