James Jordan has confessed he doesn't think his wife Ola Jordan will win the current series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' with partner Steve Backshall because Frankie Bridge is "obviously" going to win
James Jordan doesn't think his wife will win 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'Celebrity Big Brother' star was axed from the BBC One celebrity dance contest last year but wife Ola Jordan is currently competing with 'Deadly 60' presenter Steve Backshall, who he doesn't think has a chance of taking home the coveted glitterball trophy.
Speaking at the SeriousFun Children's Network Gala at London's Roundhouse, James told BANG Showbiz: "Frankie's [Frankie Bridge] going to win obviously. I think Frankie will win but, yeah, it would be great if Ola won."
James did have words of encouragement for Steve, however, as he confessed he thinks he's doing really well considering other celebrities taking part including Frankie, former 'Xtra Factor' host Caroline Flack and singer Pixie Lott have had dance lessons in the past.
The 36-year-old ballroom dancer said: "You know what, he seems really likeable which is great and he seems like he's a trier and, for me, that's what Strictly's about.
"Of course you're always going to have people on the show who have had previous dance training and he's obviously had none and I think he's doing a good job for quite a big guy."
Meanwhile, 32-year-old Ola has responded to her husband's claim that she won't win, admitting she'd love to lift the trophy for a second time after winning with Chris Hollins in 2009.
She said: "I need to prove him wrong then don't I? I would love to be the first dancer to win it for a second time."
