Strictly Come dancing star Brendan Cole turns Bond for his latest theatrical escapade to hit the south.

Strictly Come Dancing star Brendan Cole has three South Coast dates on his Licence To Thrill tour in the coming weeks.

“I want it to be a really special evening,” the star, who partnered Olympian Victoria Pendleton in the last TV contest, told Your Entertainment.

“It’s a full-on dance extravaganza.

I’ve got a phenomenal 14-piece band and cast of dancers, which will blow people away.

“My leading lady, Fauve Hauto, is a big star in France and is truly sensational.

“And my brother Scott, who’s one of my dancers, brings something unique.

“I host the show throughout so people get to know me away from the Strictly stage and see the real me.

The follow up to his debut theatre tour Live and Unjudged, Brendan promises a glamorous evening of live music, dance and chat.

Brendan Cole’s Licence To Thrill tour visits The Anvil in Basingstoke tomorrow, Poole Lighthouse on February 28 and The Mayflower on March 3.
