Brendan Cole is keen to appear on 'Strictly Come Dancing' with 'Black Swan' beauty Natalie Portman

Brendan Cole wants to dance with Natalie Portman on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The professional dancer - who has only won once before with Natasha Kaplinsky - admits the Oscar-winning actress would be the top of his list of dream partners, although he thinks any such union is very unlikely.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I would love to work with Natalie Portman. But I don't think she is at the end of the phone waiting for the BBC to call! Still, a man can dream."

Brendan has been partnered with a wide variety of stars during his time on the BBC show, and he admits some such as Jo Wood have been better than others.

He added: "Well Jo has to be one of my favourites. I think it's difficult, everyone requires a different kind of teaching. I don't think it's any secret I've got on better with some over others.

"Some people - and I won't name names - have required a slowly, slowly approach, others just pick it up straight away and some people just really struggle.

"It's tough but that's my job as a professional."

Brendan is fronting the Flora pro.activ Swing Into Action campaign to encourage people to exercise. For more information about how to lower your cholesterol and tips on how to follow a healthy and balanced diet and lifestyle, visit
