Ola Jordan is reportedly set to quit 'Strictly Come Dancing' when the current series comes to an end after being offered a big-money deal by Channel 4
Ola Jordan will reportedly quit 'Strictly Come Dancing' after the current series.
The 32-year-old professional dancer will leave the popular BBC One ballroom show in December after eight successful years following her husband James Jordan's decision to quit earlier this year.
A source shared: "Ola leaving Strictly will come as a huge blow to the show.
"She hasn't been the most popular dancer in recent weeks and there have been some problems, but she is still one of the best professionals on the show.
"She has been there since 2006 and won the whole thing with Chris Hollins in 2009, so she will be a big loss."
The newly-brunette beauty - who was accused of bullying her celebrity partner Steve Backshall last month before being voted out of the competition - is now said to have been offered a big-money deal by Channel 4.
The source told The Sun newspaper: "Ola's become disillusioned with working for the BBC and she and James want to do their own thing.
"Channel 4 are offering them a really good package.
"She's going to do 'The Jump' at the start of next year and they are lining up a dance reality show for them to star in.
"They feel they will get far more creative control than they had at the Beeb - and they are definitely going to earn a hell of a lot more cash."
