'Strictly Come Dancing' star Ola Jordan has admitted she would quit the BBC ballroom competition to start a family with her husband James, and revealed it is difficult working on the show ever since he was sacked
Ola Jordan would quit 'Strictly Come Dancing' to start a family.
The star - whose husband James was dropped by show bosses - has admitted she doesn't know if her future lies with the celebrity ballroom contest, and suggested children could be in her future.
She told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "I don't know about doing the show next year, I really don't know.
"I really want a family. And whatever life brings me, I'm going to do it, so I don't mind what happens with 'Strictly'.
"I think you have to take opportunities as they come and I might have a family to think about by next year. I really don't know if I'll want to come back."
Ola appeared on the BBC show for eight years, along with her husband, before he was axed and she has admitted it's difficult working without him around.
She added: "Everyone's been lovely. They've all been really supportive but it's still very strange for me to be there without James.
"I'm getting on with my job but I'm missing him very much. It's hard being away from him. I'm going to try to enjoy it without him."
