Professional dancer Ola Jordan has allegedly signed up for the upcoming series of 'Strictly Come Dancing', despite threatening to quit last year
Ola Jordan is returning to 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The professional dancer is said to have signed up to star in the new series of the BBC One ballroom dancing contest, despite reportedly threatening to quit last year because she felt "bullied" by fellow dancer Karen Hauer.
Her husband and co-star, dancer James Jordan, is expected to follow suit.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Losing her would have been a blow. Now they hope James will follow her lead."
Ola's spokesperson revealed she had been "verbally attacked" and deeply upset during a showdown with Karen last November, with the brunette allegedly branding her a "rubbish dancer".
Show bosses forced Karen to apologise to Ola after the incident, but the 31-year-old blonde's future on the show was left on uncertain terms.
James then posted a cryptic message on Twitter last December, calling for a shake-up of the current judging panel, made up of Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell.
He wrote: "Maybe instead of always looking to change the amazing pro dancers. I think it's about time they have more judges from the ballroom world!"
A 'Strictly' spokesperson has claimed this year's professional dancer line-up has yet to be finalised.
They said: "Discussions are on-going with all professional dancers for Strictly's next series, and the line-up will be announced in due course."
