Brendan Cole and his wife Zoe Hobbs enjoyed a romantic day out at the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday. The pair looked a picture of happiness as they admired the floral displays at the annual horticultural event, holding hands as they walked around the gardens at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Looking smart for the occasion, Brendan was dressed in a suit and waistcoat, while Zoe looked stylish in a sunshine yellow dress which was aptly embroidered with flowers, teamed with a pair of black and silver flats and some statement sunglasses.

It was a day out away from their children for Brendan and Zoe. The couple welcomed baby Dante in March, and are also parents to daughter Aurelia, five. Earlier in the month, they attended HELLO!'s star-studded 30th birthday party at Dover Street Market – the first time they had managed to get out as a couple following Dante's arrival. When asked about their baby son, Zoe gushed: "He's doing good - well, most of the time. We've had a couple of [sleepless] nights – as you do. But he's generally really good. I'm quite lucky because Brendan has been doing a lot of night feeds - he’s a modern man." "You can tell by the bags under my eyes," Brendan replied, joking.
Baby Dante was born on 13 March, and days later his doting mum shared the first photograph of their baby boy on Instagram, which pictured his tiny legs and feet. "Two little sets of ducky feet. Bandy legs just like his daddy!" Zoe wrote. She continued: "Thanks for all your kind comments on the arrival of our baby boy. We're all super in love with him especially big sister Aurélia who can't bear to let him out of her sight. He came right when I asked him to on Daddy's day off. The power of the mind and the universe is good like that #newbaby #babyboy #babynews#familyoffour #lifeisgood #tiredmummy#babybubble #tinydancer."

Following his departure from Strictly, Brendan is set for a brand new career path in the world of pantomime. The professional dancer will join the pantomime cast in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, starring in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves as Prince Charming. Talking about his future to HELLO!, the star said: "Now that the end of my year is now freed up, it's quite nice to be actually be able to do some different things. There's some exciting things in the pipeline, I'm doing Soccer Aid in a month, obviously I'm doing panto at the end of the year - the time that I would normally be doing Strictly." The star added: "It's going to be a different time, not being on-air for Strictly. At the same time, the opportunities that are just coming and the excitement of what's new."
