Billy Zane, Brendan Cole and Kelly Brook at Strictly Come Dancing - Monday 5th November 2007

* BROOK PULLS OUT OF DANCING SHOW British actress Kelly Brook has pulled out of TV talent show Strictly Come Dancing following the tragic death of her father. The 28-year-old Three star - fiancee of Hollywood actor Billy Zane - had vowed to continue rehearsals for this Saturday's (01Dec07) live show in his memory, but has since told producers she finds it "too difficult" to continue. Brook's father, Kenneth, 57, died on Monday (26Nov07) following a long battle with cancer. A spokeswoman for the BBC show says, "Kelly has been a fantastic part of the programme and will be sorely missed by everyone on the show." She added that the programme's participants "would also like to express their deepest sympathy to Kelly and her family at this difficult time". Former model/TV presenter Brook and professional dance partner Brendan Cole had been among the favourites to win the show, which has its grand final on 22 December (07).
