The 41-year-old star was recently axed from 'Strictly Come Dancing' by the BBC, but Brendan has left a gap open in his diary and he could be back on TV before the end of the year.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Doors come along and you open them and you choose to walk a different path.

"I have never had from July 31 until Christmas off. I have never been able to take on any other responsibilities, not even the odd corporate job because your time is devoted to 'Strictly'.

"Now that time is all of a sudden free, all of the things I wanted to do is now available."

Despite enjoying his new-found freedom, Brendan has ruled out following his former 'Strictly' co-star James Jordan into the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.

Meanwhile, one of Brendan's former dance partners on 'Strictly' recently admitted that he was "very emotional" when he was axed from the show.

The veteran performer's 14-year stint on the BBC programme was ended in unceremonious circumstances in January, and 'Good Morning Britain' star Charlotte Hawkins - who was his partner on the 2017 series of the ballroom and Latin contest - thinks his departure is a blow for the show.

She explained: "It's a big loss. He was very emotional about it and I really felt for him."
