They married two years later at Nether Winchendon House, Buckinghamshire, surrounded by celebrity guests including the late Bruce Forsyth and fellow dancer Strictly Anton du Beke.

The couple’s first child, a daughter named Aurelia, was born in 2012, followed by a son named Dante in 2018.

In 2018, Brendan was photographed clinching with singer Jenna Lee James outside a London nightclub while Zoe was at home with their newborn baby and daughter.

It was later reported that Zoe banned Brendan from working with the Scottish-born singer, which Brendan has always denied.

Brendan’s rep denied claims that Zoe enforced the zero contact rule, saying, “There is absolutely no truth to that claim.”

Brendan recently shared a peek inside the sprawling home he also shares with his nine-year-old daughter Aurelia and three-year-old son Dante. Meanwhile, the family also owns a house in Mallorca.

It comes after Brendan was rushed to hospital during training for the ITV show after the dancer suffered a concussion and described how he received A and E treatment after the bad fall .

Brendan described how he “took [his] mind “out of the ice” for a second, which was the last thing he could remember.

Addressing the daily star, he said: “I was rushed to hospital and had a concussion. When I realized what had happened I was horrified.”

He continued: “The moment you switch off, you make stupid mistakes. It’s been a great learning curve.

“It made me think, ‘Don’t do that again, because it’s really dangerous’. The other day I was on the ice and I had 20 minutes left in my practice session, but I knew that I was getting out of breath and I could start making mistakes.”
