The professional dancer revealed during a TV interview on Tuesday that the decision was made by the BBC, saying he was "in shock". "They made an editorial decision not to have me back on the show," he said on ITV's Lorraine. A spokesman for the BBC One show thanked Cole for "being part of the show since the beginning" and contributing to its success. 'Emotional and raw' Cole said: "I'm a little bit in shock at the moment. "I'm quite emotional and a bit raw about it. I am very disappointed. It's an editorial decision. I will never know the ins and outs. "I have had 15 incredible series on the show, I'm very proud of the whole show, they're a great team."
