Brendan Cole in Strictly return?

Brendan Cole could be set for a swift return to Strictly Come Dancing.

The Kiwi was voted off the show last weekend but could now pair up with Holly Valance if her partner Artem Chigvintsev is forced out by his fractured spine.

The Russian has not ruled out dancing again and is still in charge of their choreography.

Holly tweeted today: "So @TheBrendan_Cole is stepping in 4 Art at training this week. Just taking it a day at a time. Art is at training also, choreographing us.

'It's the most sensible thing to do, & gives his back a much needed break. Brendan is great & we'll just get on with it til Art can return.

'So between Art's fracture & my constant spasm we're a motley crew! But THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!! He's still bossing me round, but from a chair!"

Artem's injury was initially diagnosed as a strained muscle and it was only yesterday that medical results revealed a fracture of the lumbar spine.
