Ola Jordan is the name of a British-Polish professional ballroom dancer. From 2006 through 2015, she had professional appearances on the British television programme Strictly Come Dancing. She left Poland after winning a championship event and started a new relationship with James Jordan there.
In 2018, she was appointed a judge on the Polish version of Dancing with the Stars, Taniec z gwiazdami. Alongside her husband James, she participated in the fourth season of Celebrity Coach Trip in 2019. She is a really talented woman all around.
James Jordan, a former Strictly professional and DOI champion, and his wife Ola, 39, were photographed together while on vacation.
The two were seen in bathing suits, with Ola sporting a vivid pink bikini, but she informed supporters she wasn’t overly fond of her figure.
“I wasn’t going to post this image, but I’ve chosen to because I’m terrified and so unhappy with myself, and by posting it, I’m hoping it will help push me to do something about it,” the mother of one, who welcomed her daughter in 2020 with James, added.
“Our friend captured this image of us attempting to stay cool by the pool yesterday, but OMG… it was a complete shock, to put it mildly! When did we start developing “mum and dad bods”?
We acknowledge that we aren’t in the best form for Strictly, but that’s what happens when you stop dancing for hours every day and have a baby (I’m curious as to James’ justification).
Before tagging James, Ola joked that she would be “going off the ice cream for a long” and wrote, “Couples that eat together stay together.”
One fan of the celebrity commented: “Still looking great and thank you for sharing.” Others praised Ola for her openness in the post.
Another person said: “I appreciate you sharing this! You both look fantastic, you two! We should all be kinder to ourselves! I adore you both very much.
James left a comment on the article as well, asking, “Have you been drinking? Saw this aeons ago but my message didn’t go up.
