With just hours to go until the Strictly live shows kick off, James is nursing his injury after a clash with wife, and fellow Strictly pro, Ola Jordan in rehearsals.
The official Strictly account tweeted this afternoon: “What is going on with @BBCStrictly this year? @The_OlaJordan has just broken her husband @The_JamesJordan’s nose in rehearsals… OUCH!”
James meanwhile only said "OUCH", while wife Ola added: "Yes guys! It's true!!!! I have just broken my husbands nose!!! I'm so so sorry @The_JamesJordan I feel so bad!!!! I love you!!!!!!!!"
James is due to be dancing with celeb partner Denise Van Outen on tonight's first live show, which starts at 9PM.
And that's been the only troubles in this evening's rehearsals.
Artem Chigvintsev - who is partnering Fern Britton - was hit in the face by fellow Strictly pro Flavia Cacace's elbow.
Strictly Come Dancing 2012 airs at 9PM on BBC One tonight (Friday) and continues at 6:30PM tomorrow (Saturday).
