Brendan Cole was recently axed from Strictly Come Dancing, after the BBC decided not to renew his contract after 15 years.
The professional dancer has denied the reason behind the decision was after he broke protocol when it comes to the Royal family.
During the Christmas special of the BBC show, Brendan, judge Craig Revel Horwood and a number of professionals attended a tea dance at Buckingham Palace for charity.
Brendan then asked Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall to dance and they were pictured together as they happily performed some steps together.
But The Sun claims the move left bosses furious as it broke protocol.
“It was the last straw, they saw he couldn’t be controlled,” a source told The Sun.

“The event had been very carefully orchestrated, largely due to Craig’s friendship with Camilla – and everyone, including Brendan, had been given an extremely clear briefing.
“It was a tea dance in aid of an osteoporosis charity encouraging older people to stay active and each of the professionals was to pair up with the guests while Craig danced with Camilla.
However, Brendan’s spokesperson denied the claims to The Mirror, saying: “I can confirm that these assertions are absolutely, categorically untrue. There was no such brief from BBC.”
A Clarence House spokesman said: “The Duchess thoroughly enjoyed her dance with Brendan just as much as she did her dance with Craig.”
After the dance, Brendan later said in an interview: “I didn’t know if I was breaking protocol or not but I did ask her if it was OK to ask her to dance, and she said ‘I’d love to’.
“I thought somebody was about to grab me by the scruff of the neck and kick me out.”
