Ola Jordan: Strictly banned me wearing sexy catsuits
Ola Jordan claims she was banned from wearing sexy outfits on 'Strictly Come Dancing' because they were too much.
Ola Jordan claims she was banned from wearing sexy outfits on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 33-year-old beauty was a professional dancer on the BBC One show for 10 years before leaving at the end of 2015 and she believes bosses didn't approve of the risque catsuits she liked to wear.
Ola - who won the show in 2009 - said: "I loved wearing the catsuits but after a while, they stopped me. I think they thought they were too sexy."
A source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "At the time Ola was outraged, she thought it was a fix and another example of how they manipulate votes.
"She felt like the BBC were holding her back by not letting her wear the catsuit again.
"They clearly felt it was an unfair advantage and were manipulating the vote themselves in their own way."
However, show insiders claim that couldn't be further from the truth.
They said: "This sounds like sour grapes. Ola of all people knows that you top the leader board by doing the best dance, not by wearing a catsuit.
"After all, the year she won 'Strictly' she didn't wear a catsuit."
This isn't the first time Ola has criticised 'Strictly' as she has previously claimed that the judges' scores are altered to manipulate who wins.
She said: "People are over-marked and under-marked. In my opinion, they know how many votes people scored in previous weeks and then try to influence their leaderboard position."
At the time the BBC dismissed Ola's "fix" claims as "nonsense".
