Strictly Come Dancing star Ola Jordan reveals her mama plans
He caused controversy on Celebrity Big Brother and has been regularly hitting the headlines for his shocking Tweets about the show since he left, but Strictly Come Dancing professional Ola Jordan is sticking by her husband James Jordan. ‘He’s naughty – that’s why I love him!’ she giggles.
In our exclusive interview, Poland-born Ola, 32, spills the beans on her partner this series Steve Backshall, 41, lifts the lid on her 11-year marriage to James, 36, and confirms that recent rumours are true – she wants a baby. So will the stunning dancer be quitting the show like her hubby?
Hey, Ola. You and Steve have been brilliant this series!
Thanks! The competition’s so tough this time around.
This is your first year without James on the show – will you do it without him again next time?
I take it year by year and see where life takes me. Whatever happens happens.
Aren’t you a bit embarrassed by him, though? He’s certainly speaking his mind about the show this year on Twitter!
No, I love it! There aren’t enough people who tell the truth.
Do you think he’d make a good judge?
He would have been a brilliant judge – the most honest and truthful. But he won’t be a judge.
You celebrated your 11th wedding anniversary last month – that’s good going! What’s your secret to a happy marriage?
I’d say just trust, honesty and being best friends – we tell each other everything.
So what’s next for you? There are rumours you’re quitting Strictly to have a baby…
I hope so. Maybe one day.
Would you like a big family?
Not too big. I don’t know what’ll happen.
If you do get pregnant, will you still dance?
I don’t know. It’s too early to say.
So come on, who wears the trousers in your relationship?
Well, it’s hard because at home I’m the boss. But on the dancefloor James is the boss. [Laughs] I’ve got to make him boss sometimes, but at home he’s definitely not!
You’re the sexiest woman on Strictly. How does James deal with jealousy if you’re dancing with a hot guy?
He doesn’t get jealous. We’ve been doing this for a long time – we’re used to this business.
So he doesn’t ever warn off the other guys?
No, he doesn’t need to. I’m not interested!
Steve Backshall’s single…
And ready to mingle! I’m aiming to set him up with someone – I’ll let you know how it goes…
Deal! So what’s the biggest misconception people have about you and James?
We’re very down-to-earth people and I think sometimes people forget that as James is so outspoken. But we’ve got a lot of normal friends and we don’t mix that much with celebrities.
Who would you say is your biggest competition this year?
What about your own reality show with James?
Maybe. We’ll see. That’d be something else! I don’t like to say until there’s pen to paper – but watch out for it…
