Brendan Cole has Strictly advice for Nigel Harman, ‘sulk in private’

Former Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Brendan Cole has words of advice for actor Nigel Harman who is currently a regular for negative critique from the ballroom judges on the Beeb dance contest.

“He [Nigel Harman] will need to be careful because people will only give you one chance” says Brendan, adding, “You’ve got to have humility in this little game of show business and you learn that with age, I didn’t have it as a youngster, but I certainly try to have it now and on a show like Strictly you need to pick your moments.”

The Casualty regular was seen storming off the dancefloor following being low-scored and receiving critical comments from the judges, after his performance at the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool.

Professional dancer Katya Jones and Nigel Harman perform on Strictly Come Dancing on November 11th, 2023.

“If you need to storm off, do it in private, go and have a tantrum or a sulk in your dressing room but then compose yourself, come back out and be a supporter of everybody else doing the show. I do understand the frustration that he would have felt.

“I’m pretty sure he would have felt like he’d done a really good number because he doesn’t necessarily know the difference between bad or good at this stage. He doesn’t know the aspects that make a good Quickstep turn into a great Quickstep.”

Speaking to to Sky Bingo Brendan concluded:

“He did what was being asked of him but there was certainly something missing and when you don’t understand that you can be bitterly disappointed to receive any sort of negativity. He will need to be careful because people will give you one chance, but they might not give two or three.

“It’s a shame because I really like what he does and I’d like to see him and Katya [Jones] fighting to win in the final.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One this weekend.
