Brendan recently revealed to MailOnline that he found his stint on Strictly Come Dancing ‘tiring’ as they ‘pushed the same narrative for 15 series’ that he was the ‘competitive one’ on the show.

He then lauded ITV’s DOI for ‘showing him in a lovely light’, including more of his fun personality and that he likes to ‘muck around’ with other contestants.

Brendan – who has come under fire this series for being a professional dancer but says it’s only because ‘people like to complain’ – will go up against Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and Regan Gascoigne in the upcoming final – who also both have dance experience.

‘And they really pushed that side of me. There was very much a narrative that the show went with for 15 series. And it was tiring because it was actually not me.

‘As you can see I like a bit of fun. I muck around a lot and that wasn’t shown very often and I think it has been shown more on this show.

Adding: ‘And I am very pleased for the way it has been for all of, we have been shown in really lovely lights which we are. And it has been a really great experience. ‘
