The pair made it through to the Strictly Come Dancing final back in 2013.
“I invited him around two years ago to my house. I thought ’wouldn’t it be nice to see Brendan, just to see if he’s working...”
The former GMTV presenter has made no secret of the fact she and Brendan didn't get on behind the scenes.
As Fern Britton and Laura Whitmore prove, not every celebrity has the best time with their professional partner on the BBC dance show.
The former GMTV host was paired with him on the BBC show in 2005.
The long-standing Strictly pro recently suggested Brendan Cole should have "binned Jeremy off".
"I don't agree with viciousness."
The former pro is unimpressed with the judges' scoring, but did have kind words for Ashley Roberts.
It was previously claimed he'd be stepping into Brendan Cole's shoes.
They've insisted he's still part of the family.
Up until now he's only featured in group dances.

'I’m extremely proud of what he’s achieved both at work and at home.'
'How many dancers in their life get a job that will last 15 years? Not many. Be grateful.'
There had been speculation she might not be back.
'The show goes on.'
Exclusive: ‘It would look like we were getting the BBC’s sloppy seconds.’
'I just hope Anton Du Beke doesn't go the same way.'
