Brendan Cole focusing on family

Brendan Cole is taking a break from dancing to spend time with his family.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' is father to three-month-old daughter Aurelia with his wife, Zoe Hobbs, and after recently finished the show's Licence To Thrill live tour wants to concentrate on raising his family.
Speaking at the Health Lottery Afternoon Tea, hosted by Simon Cowell at Claridges Hotel in London today (28.03.13), Brendan told BANG Showbiz: "I'm very hands on and I want to continue that. I did the first few nappy changes and am trying to be as helpful as I can be. It's an important job I'm taking very seriously.
"Being a parent is a phenomenal thing, it's a whole world of adventure that you don't realise you are in for."
Despite taking on the huge commitment of becoming a father, Brendan is hoping he will be able to return to 'Strictly Come Dancing' later this year.
He added: "I'm waiting for it to come around. I can't confirm whether I'll be there now but I will hopefully find this out in May or June.
"As long as it stays how it is I'd be happy to be there. Everyone seems to love the show, it's fantastic!"
The 11th series of the BBC dancing show will reveal its line up of celebrity contestants and their professional partners at the start of the Autumn.
