Brendan is such a big character, but I won’t be biased."He’s got one of the best professional skaters in Vanessa [Bauer], so there’s this expectation that he’s going to be amazing."Before he knew I was doing it [being a DOI judge], he told me: 'People think it’ll be easy, but it’s really difficult. And people expect that I’m going to be great, but I’m struggling.'"I don’t think he will argue with the judges.That’s something that he did on Strictly because he was defending his partner."Now he’s the one learning the new skill.

He’s grown up and he’s gonna take [the judges’ comments] on board and try to get better," Oti told The Sun.45-year-old Brendan is partnered with Vanessa Bauer this series and is also a favourite to win the show.But Strictly fans will remember he was famous for rowing with the judges over their critiques.He left the show in 2018, after 15 years of working on the BBC programme.Although old habits die hard, and he found himself jumping to the defence of his old Strictly pal James Jordan, who logged onto Twitter to comment on Brendan’s performance on Sunday.In view of his 302,000 followers, James tweeted: "Just watched @BrendanCole on catch-up on @dancingonice.

Strictly pro James Jordan, 43, in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk.The Death In Paradise star didn't hold back as he branded James a “scumbag” and a “has-been”, reigniting the furious Twitter spat that took place between them when Danny was competing in the 2018 series of Strictly. This Monday, Danny will be starring in the theatrical adaptation of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, where he will portray Sir Leigh Teabing - a character brought to life by legendary actor Sir Ian McKellen in the 2006 film.When the actor was asked where he drew inspiration to play the evil role, he briefly spoke about James and mentioned the comments he made on Twitter. Danny began by referring to James as “the has-been dancer on Strictly”, as he revealed the reason behind his extreme dislike of the performer. The actor explained: “He had the nerve to go on social media to say that my 85-year-old mum with dementia looked miserable.“That scumbag.The has-been, never-been, could-have-been… What’s his name? Apparently he’s a dancer…“It’s easy for me to play villainous characters because I’ve come in contact with enough of them.”Express.co.uk have contacted James Jordan for further comment.Danny was referring to a now-deleted tweet from James Jordan in 2018, which stated that the Death in Paradise star’s mother looked “as miserable as him” while he was performing in Strictly’s dance-off.During the dance-off that would later see him sent home, Danny performed a Salsa alongside his partner Amy Dowden while his mother sat watching in the audience. In response, Danny's wife Petula Langlais wrote: “Out of order! Attacking an elderly woman who has done nothing to you! “You know nothing about our personal lives! That is below the belt!!! Love and
