Strictly Come Dancing pro Ola Jordan has reportedly clashed with show bosses.

It follows her rather vocal criticism of the show following the axe of her husband James Jordan as a pro dancer.

Outspoken Ola had suggested that the Beeb should ditch both Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli.

But TV chiefs on Strictly haven't taken too kindly to Ola's criticism of the panel, with sources claiming that she has been given a "massive carpeting."

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper at the weekend: "She has made several digs now.

"They expect loyalty from the people they employ, and there are some people very high up who feel she has broken ranks."

They added: “There is very much a view along the lines of, does she want a job or not? Strictly got rid of her husband because they thought he was a troublemaker, and they’re not afraid to do the same to her.

“It goes back to that age-old saying that nobody is bigger than the show – particularly when it’s Strictly. James was sacked, and so could Ola be.”

On Sunday night's launch show we saw Ola get paired with Wildlife TV host Steve Backshall for this year's series, with bookies giving the pair an early 18/1 shot of getting the Glitterball.

Strictly returns at the end of the month for the start of the live shows on BBC One.
