DESPITE his shock departure from Strictly Come Dancing the show still goes on for Brendon Cole.

The charismatic performer, who had been a professional dancer on Strictly since its launch in 2004, until he was dramatically axed last week, will take to the stage in Southampton on Sunday to wow audiences with his latest spectacular production.

The professional dancer, who is expecting his second child, fought back tears as he revealed on TV he was not part of the “vision” for the future of the BBC One show.

But his live show All Night Long is back by popular demand following a hugely successful and critically acclaimed run earlier this year.

Created and hosted by Brendan himself, he takes audiences on a journey through dance, music, comedy, passion, intimacy and all things ballroom.

He is joined on stage by a sensational cast of superbly talented championship dancers and a 13-piece band and singers whipping up an extravagant mix of Latin fever and ballroom magic. Featuring all your Strictly favourites, from tantalising Tango to powerful Paso Doble, elegant Foxtrot to breath-taking Waltz - and with a few surprises in store - this is no ordinary dance show.

Brendan Cole is best known from TV favourite Strictly Come Dancing and is one of just two of the professional dancers on the ever popular TV show Strictly Come Dancing to have competed in each series. Brendan danced the first show of the first series, wining the first glitterball trophy! This year he was paired with Good Morning Britain’s Charlotte Hawkins whilst previous partners have included: Natasha Kaplinsky, Kelly Brook, Lisa Snowdon, Jo Wood, Victoria Pendleton, Sunetra Sarker, Kirsty Gallacher, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and pop star Anastacia.

All Night Long will be Brendan’s tenth annual concert tour. It brings together high energy dance, live music, stunning special effects and Brendan’s own dazzling choreography performed to the songs of great music legends and exciting contemporary artists.
