Ola Jordan has admitted her husband James Jordan was dating someone else when she met and fell for him
Ola Jordan snatched her husband James Jordan from another woman.
The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional has admitted her spouse, whom she has been married to for 13 years, was already in a relationship with someone else when they first met but that didn't bother her and she continued to pursue him.
Writing in her autobiography 'Strictly Ola: My Story', the blonde beauty - who was 17 at the time - said: "His partner was Polish, and when I watched them dance together I was filled with just one thought, 'I want to have a partner like that one day.'
"At one point during the competition I actually got introduced to this tall, dark stranger, very fleetingly. 'Hello', he smiled. And then he was gone."
But the encounter "stuck" in her mind and, although she knew he was "well out of her league", the 34-year-old dancer received a phone call from James' partner asking if she was available to trial with him because they wanted to dance with other people.
She explained: "It didn't bother me that he had a girlfriend. I was four-and-a-half years younger than James and never considered for one moment that he could possibly be interested in a girl like me, not in that way. He was spoken for and was very renowned in the dance world, and I felt young and inexperienced by comparison. Nevertheless, when I saw James walk through arrivals at the airport my heart skipped a beat."
The pair gradually grew closer as they trained together and James' relationship with his girlfriend began to break down, before he eventually ditched her once and for all.
Although they wanted to be together, the couple didn't reveal their true feelings for one another until they took a trip to Hong Kong and they later tied the knot in 2003.
