In news that's sure to make you feel old, Strictly Come Dancing has been on our screens since 2004.

Spin-off show It Takes Two reminded us of the fact last night (November 17) when they paid a touching tribute to Brendan Cole, who has been a professional dancer on Strictly for all 15 series, to share his story on the series so far.

The video took us back in time to that first show in 2004 (although it looks more like the '70s with the hairstyles, soft lighting and SD cameras) where Brendan actually performed the first ever dance!

Throughout the video, the star reflects on some of his favourite celebrity partners, from Natasha Kaplinsky (who he won series one with), to Lisa Snowdon and Sophie Ellis-Bextor (both of whom he made the final with), as well as Kelly Brook (who he feels he could have won with had her father not sadly passed away).

However, it looks like Brendan's video has prompted many Strictly fans to think that he'll be departing the show after the current run, although he neither confirmed nor denied it on the show.

That doesn't stop the speculation though:
