Ola Jordan wants to replace Alesha Dixon on the 'Strictly Come Dancing' judging panel

Ola Jordan wants to replace Alesha Dixon on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 29-year-old dancer - who won the show with Chris Hollins in 2009 - would love to take over from Alesha, who quit her role as a judge after defecting to rival ITV1 show 'Britain's Got Talent', and promises not to show any favouritism to her husband James Jordan, who is also one of the BBC One show's professional dancers.

She said: "I would like to see me replacing Alesha. I would be a good judge. It has to be someone interesting and I think they are looking for a girl, so here I am! I've done six series, I'm a dancer and I've won it.

"You're going to see the nasty side of me. I would have to criticise James too. I'd be fine with that."

Choreographer Karen Bruce - who is behind the Take That musical - was recently tipped to take on the role after she impressed BBC One bosses with two screen tests and while Ola thinks Karen would be good, she believes she would be better.

She added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "Karen has been mentioned, Darcey Bussell would be great. We've had her on the show before. But I think Ola would be best!"
