Ahead of Strictly Come Dancing's Blackpool Tower Ballroom extravaganza on BBC One on Saturday night, dancer Brendan Cole has said that fans are mistaking him for fellow professional Anton du Beke.

Cole wrote on Twitter: "Well, arrived at the Tower in BP - been called Anton twice, wished well for Fiona's [Fullerton, du Beke's celebrity partner] dance on Saturday three times and all before breakfast."

Cole's Strictly Come Dancing colleague Robin Windsor replied: "It's OK darling - I have been called Artem [Chigvintsev, another professional dancer on the show] four times this morning."

Bookmakers have halved the odds of Cole and his celebrity partner, singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, being eliminated from the show this weekend.
