Former 'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant James Jordan was rushed to hospital on Christmas Day after complaining of chest pains

James Jordan was taken ill on Christmas Day.

The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant and ex-'Strictly Come Dancing' professional dancer was reportedly rushed to hospital on December 25 after complaining of chest pains.

A source close to the couple shared: "James wasn't right all morning and then he began to be sick and then collapsed. He had mentioned he'd been having chest pains."

Ola - who has been married to the 36-year-old dancer for 11 years - was "shocked and distressed" by the incident and felt helpless as she is currently recovering from a "career changing" leg injury which she sustained whilst training for Channel 4 show, 'The Jump'.

The source continued to the Sunday Mirror: "It was horrific for Ola. She was stuck and couldn't do anything except shout to the neighbours, who thankfully heard and went in to help.

"Ola was absolutely heartbroken. She feared something horrible had happened to her husband. They decided that they should call an ambulance right away and James was rushed to hospital.

"James has been caring for Ola so she is now having to struggle without him."

The 32-year-old dancing professional is currently keeping a bedside vigil at Pembury Hospital in Kent, south-east England whilst James awaits test results.
