Strictly Come Dancing professional Ola Jordan admits she would have quit the BBC One dance contest if her husband James, who was dumped from the show after the last series, didn't want her to carry on
Ola Jordan would've quit 'Strictly Come Dancing' if her husband James didn't want her to carry on.
The 31-year-old professional dancer, who has been married to the star for 11 years, has signed up for the BBC One dance contest for another year but admits she was in two minds after her other half was dumped from the show.
She said: "I probably wouldn't have done the show. My marriage to James is more important to me than anything.
"I have massive respect for James. We went on the show together and I always thought we would leave it together.
"I was prepared not to return but James said: 'Just do it, it will be a different experience for you'."
As well as concentrating on her career, Ola also admitted she is keen to have a baby with James at some point in the future.
She added to OK! magazine: "I am 32 in September and I don't want to miss the boat. I definitely don't want to sacrifice children for a career.
"I can't imagine life without kids and I think James will be a great dad."
