Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Victoria Pendleton blasts Brendan Cole

Victoria Pendleton (Strictly Come Dancing)

Axed Strictly Come Dancing star Victoria Pendleton has blamed Brendan Cole for her exit.

The Olympian was kicked out of the show last weekend, and reckons that her pro partner Brendan was to blame.

Victoria was bottom of the leaderboard and not saved by the judges in the dance off with Michael Vaughan last Sunday night.

Speaking at the British Fashion Awards last week, Victoria complained: "Brendan is really hard work, I’m telling you, He’s like a child that needs all the attention on him.

“He’d be sliding across the dance floor on his knees and I’d be like, 'Wow. Seriously, mate?’"

She continued: "The dancers are the real stars of the show, but he’s got such a chip on his shoulder about it.

" It got to the point where I was putting all this effort in, but I didn’t feel any serious kind of connection with him.”

Victoria insisted she wasn't upset about leaving, admitting: “It was fun, but I got to the point where I’d be on stage and I just thought, 'I want to go home … ”

Strictly Come Dancing continues with the results show tonight, Sunday 2nd December at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.

One more celeb will be cut in the dance off while there will be a performance from Alfie Boe.
