Nat's King Cole

She has always denied any hint of a romance, but we can reveal that Natasha Kaplinsky IS dating her Strictly Come Dancing partner Brendan Cole.At last weekend's 2004 TV Moments bash, 29-year-old Cole confessed to one of our spies: "It's just not the right time to announce our love in public.

"It's a difficult situation. We both have previous partners and we don't want to hurt people's feelings."

The ballroom pro added that BBC news presenter Nat was a "great person" and said they'd grown really close over the last few months.

So close, in fact, that they are rumoured to be house-hunting and have set their hearts on a luxury riverside apartment on the Thames.

They were shown around a three-bedroom property at the exclusive Battersea Reach complex in South-West London.

Yet Natasha has always denied they were having an affair.

She said recently, "We're just good friends". And, when pressed, described the question as "b******s".

The pair were certainly at pains to keep up the old pals act when they received a gong for Most Entertaining TV Moment Of The Year at the awards.

An onlooker tells us, "It was amusing to watch the act they put on. When there were cameras around they kept their distance, but once they thought no one was watching it was a different story.

"Their body language was incredibly intimate - Brendan had his hand on Natasha's bum and she was lovingly picking fluff from his lapel. They didn't look like they were just friends."

Breakfast host Natasha, 32, first waltzed into Brendan's life when he partnered her on the first series of BBC1's Strictly Come Dancing.

At the time, she was dating TV producer Lloyd Bracey, and Brendan was engaged to Camilla Dallerup - another dance teacher on the show.

The obvious sexual chemistry between Nat and Brendan, who went on to win, set tongues wagging.

And Camilla called off the engagement a few weeks after the show ended.

Suspicions that Nat and Brendan were closer than they were letting on were further aroused when she was caught glaring at him as he talked to blonde Casualty star Sarah Manners in the second series.

We're told, "Brendan was chatting to Sarah and it was obviously not going down well with Natasha. She was giving him evil glares."

Now that their secret's out, let's see her dance her way out of this one...

Home Dancing

TV star Natasha Kaplinsky and her Come Dancing partner Brendan Cole are planning to buy a £600,000 home together.The couple have their hearts set on a luxury riverside apartment on the banks of the Thames. They were seen discussing the new purchase at a showhome in the exclusive Battersea Reach complex in South-West London.

A fellow buyer said: "Before looking at the apartment Brendan was discussing finances very loudly with a blonde woman. Natasha was asking about the gym. She wanted to know if it was open 24 hours.

"They were laughing at her asking about being able to use the rowing machine in the middle of the night."

The pair - with Brendan on crutches following key-hole surgery on a damaged tendon - were then taken to view a three-bedroom property at the front of the development worth £600,000. The homes start at over £360,000 and the penthouse apartments cost more than £1million.

Both Brendan, 29, and Natasha, 31, appeared relaxed and happy during the half-hour viewing

A fellow viewer said: "They were standing very close to each other."

The move looks set to seal their turbulent relationship, which first began when they danced together on Strictly Come Dancing. Both split from their respective partners, but the romance has been on and off ever since.

Recently they were seen kissing backstage at a theatre in Halifax, West Yorks, where Brendan was appearing in Cinderella, and Brendan reportedly spent more than £5,000 on Tiffany jewellery for Natasha at Christmas.

Come Dancing couple spark love nest rumours

TV star and broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky is planning to buy a home with former Strictly Come Dancing partner, Brendan Cole, the Sunday Mirror claims.The pair met during the first series of the celebrity dance contest and their on-screen chemistry soon sparked rumours that they had waltzed into an off-screen relationship.

The paper reports that the couple joined fellow-house seekers during a recent viewing of a show home in south-west London's exclusive Battersea Reach complex.

It is claimed that the couple were then given a tour of a £600,000 three-bedroom property at the front of the luxury riverside development.

Unnamed fellow viewers told the paper the couple looked happy during the half-hour tour.

"Before looking at the apartment Brendan was discussing finances very loudly with a blonde woman. Natasha was asking about the gym. She wanted to know if it was open 24 hours," one fellow buyer told the Sunday Mirror.

"They were laughing at her asking about being able to use the rowing machine in the middle of the night."

The alleged on-off relationship between Natasha, 31 and 29-year-old New Zealand dancer, Brendan has been the subject of tabloid rumour for some time.

The Sunday Mirror claims the pair were recently spotted kissing backstage at the Halifax theatre where Brendan was starring in pantomime.

TV's turn-on moments

It's yet another shameless list of television favourites - but which one will be crowned the top TV moment of 2004?Coronation Street has a fine tradition of women brawling on the Weatherfield cobbles, and last year was no different.

Gail coming to blows with Eileen when she found out that daughter Sarah's partner Todd was gay is one of five nominations for Best Popular Drama Moment.

Or how about Manchester Channel 4 hit Shameless, up for Best Drama Moment for the scene when Frank Gallagher had to pretend to be dead to escape the debt collectors, but refused to get back into his coffin?

The fourth annual awards show, hosted by Jonathan Ross, is screened on BBC1 at 8pm next Wednesday in front of a celebrity audience.

Eighteen of the 28 nominations are for BBC shows, but all were picked by independent industry experts and viewing panels.

Little Britain - one of the big small screen successes of last year - is up for Best Comedy Moment for the scene where Harvey introduces his fiancee to his parents, but is too hungry to wait for his dinner.


It faces competition from three other programmes, including The Keith Barrett Show, for the edition when Keith took questions from his audience for guests Richard and Judy. Another contender in this category is the Channel 4 comedy Green Wing for the scene in which doctors Mac, Caroline and Guy perform an operation speaking only in Geordie accents.

Chef Gordon Ramsay's blazing row with Edwina Currie, in which he accused her of doing to him what she did to former prime minister John Major, is one of the clips in line for Best Factual Entertainment Moment.

He cooks up a competition with himself in the same category. Gordon's Channel 4 series Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares is shortlisted for his reaction after sampling local restaurant scallops which were off. Another nomination in this category is Michael Buerk's return to Ethiopia 20 years after first reporting on the famine.

Buerk's BBC news colleague, ex-royal correspondent Jennie Bond is also nominated for time she spent underground in a grave full of rats, thanks to those nice people at I'm A Celebrity {hellip} Get Me Out Of Here!

Natasha Kaplinsky and Brendan Cole "Dirty Dancing" for Strictly Come Dancing may waltz off with the Best Entertainment Moment, though it faces competition from Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, when the host discovered Trinny and Susannah were a bit of a handful.

Among the contenders for Best Sporting Moment are Kelly Holmes winning her first Olympic gold medal in the 800m in Athens, Britain's 4x 100m relay squad just pipping the US team to gold, Maria Sharapova's Wimbledon Singles Final win at the age of 17 and Matthew Pinsent's golden triumph in the Olympic Coxless Fours.

The trick is not to win

Jonathan Davies (Rugby): I must be mad. Why am I doing this? It's all too physical. There's no room for the skilful little guys! Still, I've been practising my dips on the bannisters back home. Just watch me go. Its my specialist event. Magic. If this was It's a Knockout I would play the joker and go for double points. When are they bringing that back?John Barnes (Football): I'm still looking for some swimming trunks that fit. Actually I'm OK at swimming until I have to breathe. How do they do that? Have you got your karaoke act sorted for the party yet, Jiffy? Let me guess, Tom Jones and Delilah? The organisers are paying me big money not to sing World in Motion. Did I ever tell you that went top 10? Top of the Pops, the works. They don't produce records like that any more do they?

John Regis (Athletics): Thank God! OK guys, huddle around for a minute. Some advice from an old bugger who has been here before. The trick is, under no circumstances, to win - otherwise you have to enter the main competition later on and you will be completely knackered and have to stay off the pop. I'm too old for this lark but my wife says it helps keep my weight down. Thank God they've introduced the shot put. That's my kind of event these days.

Barry McGuigan (Boxing): Speak for yourself John - do I look like a shot putter? I'm so ancient-looking these days old ladies offer to help me across the road. I'm just looking forward to meeting Amir Khan when we are finished and seeing what the lad is made of.

Tim Foster (Rowing): Hi guys! I'm one of the blokes who used to row with Steve and Matt. It's all right, nobody ever remembers our names, it comes with the territory. I have never been so nervous as this, though. I've had two major back ops and a vet would have put me down by now. I might be the youngest here but I am the most knackered. Whose round is it?

Bryan Robson (Football): My shout. Of course we've heard of you - you're the long-haired student bloke, the stylist who made them all look good and kept everything running neat and tidy. Am I right? I'd run you close on the injury stakes, Tim. We ought to compare scars: I once had three broken legs in a year at West Brom, not to mention busted shoulders, dislocated collarbones, torn Achilles and ripped groins at Manchester United. You name it, I've broken it. And another thing - my ankle is swelling up as we talk. I should be sponsored by Bupa.

Martin Offiah (Rugby): Saga more like, Robbo. In fact they should do us as a job lot. The trouble with being a rugby player is that everybody remembers Andy Ripley and Keith Fielding and expects us to do well. I wasn't really fit last year but, what with Strictly Come Dancing, I'm OK this time around. I can't believe how tough that show was. The weight just dropped off. Ellery, you were always a good mover on the dance floor, you doing the next series?

Ellery Hanley (Rugby): No way. Now tell me something. And you Jiffy - you were both union chaps before we lured you north. Why all this fuss about Clive Woodward's 'revolutionary' approach with England and the Lions? What's all that about? Manchester United and Wigan were there 20 years ago with all their attention to detail and scientific application to training. That's why they were champions. All Clive has done is bring rugby union into the real professional world.

Jonathan Davies: You're probably right, Ellery, but back to the subject in hand. What are we doing here? We are deep in the manure, boys. How are we going to bluff this one out and look like superstars? Why did they stop the programme when we were fit and in our pomp? Still, watch me go in the dips. Barman…?

My Kaplinsguy

Together..TV Natasha & the Come Dancing partner she said she's split from. Natasha Kaplinsky and her Strictly Come Dancing partner Brendan Cole are an item again.The smiling pair were stepping out after Brendan spent the night at the TV beauty's new riverside home last week.

An onlooker who spotted them in Chiswick, west London, said: "It was quite a surprise when they came out together just after midday and looked a devoted couple in love.

"Brendan seemed really pleased with himself as they walked down the road and he helped Natasha ride her trendy scooter."

The spark between BBC presenter Natasha, 31, and Kiwi dance ace Brendan was always obvious to viewers and both split from their long-term lovers.

Then the relationship seemed to cool - and the TV star got back in touch with her ex Lloyd Bracey, 48.

But she and Brendan, 28, were thrust together again for the Strictly Come Dancing Champions of Champions special.

They also had a passionate meeting last month at the theatre in Halifax, West Yorks, where Brendan was appearing in Cinderella.

A theatre source said: "They were kissing and hugging in the corridor backstage. It was a full-on kiss, not just a peck on the cheek. When they noticed that they had been seen they went into his dressing room."

The pair later had a romantic meal at a local restaurant. "They were holding hands and staring into each other's eyes, all very lovey dovey," the source revealed."

And Brendan was delighted when Natasha invited him to her place.

Last night when asked about their relationship, Brendan said: "No comment. It's no one's business but our own."

SCD Series 1

Information about the first Series of Strictly Come Dancing...

Are today's celebrities fleet of foot or do they have two left feet?

That's the question Bruce Forsyth and co-host Tess Daly will be finding the answer to when they present Strictly Come Dancing, beginning 15 May on BBC 1 and BBC 3.

The eight celebrities who have dared to pair up with some of the world's leading professional dancers are officially revealed today (Wednesday 21 April) as:

  • Martin Offiah (Rugby Player)
  • Lesley Garrett (Opera Singer)
  • David Dickinson (Presenter)
  • Verona Joseph (Actress - Jess Griffin in Holby City)
  • Jason Wood (Comedian)
  • Natasha Kaplinsky (Newsreader)
  • Christopher Parker (Actor - Spencer Moon in EastEnders)
  • Claire Sweeney (Actress/presenter)

Host Bruce Forsyth says: "I am delighted to have been asked to present Strictly Come Dancing and it will be so nice to have dancing of a different type on TV."

Each celebrity is given a professional dance partner who will put them through their paces during daily rehearsals, ensuring they're in the best possible shape for the live Saturday night performance on BBC 1.

Co-host Tess Daly says: "It's a dream come true to be working alongside two show business legends - Bruce Forsyth and Come Dancing.

"I can't wait to see how our dancers and celebrity partners get along."

But it's not as simple as it sounds - after the relative safety of week one, the partnerships will face a public and studio vote from week two onwards, with the lowest scoring team being knocked out.

In addition to a panel of studio judges, phonelines will be open for viewers to call and vote for who they believe has put in the best performance.

The result will then be taken from the average of these scores with all profits going towards Sport Relief.

By the final week, just two teams will remain as they compete to win the coveted crown of Strictly Come Dancing champions.

In addition to the weekly show on BBC 1, viewers will be able to track the teams' progress in a daily show on BBC 3.

There will be exclusive footage from the rehearsals and updates on training, as well as interviews with the contestants.

And for any wallflowers out there, an item called Dance-Mate promises to pair viewers up with other dance fans looking for a partner to tango with.

Head of BBC Entertainment Group, Wayne Garvie, said: "Strictly Come Dancing's a show that really does have something for everyone and for viewers of all ages.

"It's going to be really good fun and it's great to see someone of Bruce's calibre presenting."

Strictly Come Dancing is a BBC Format Entertainment Production. The executive producer is Karen Smith.

All proceeds go to Sports Relief. For further information, please go to Sport Relief is an initiative of Comic Relief, registered charity 326568.
