Ola Jordan has revealed she may quit Strictly Come Dancing next year.

But if she does leave it'll be her own choice, rather than getting the axe like husband James.

And Ola won't be heading into the CBB house, instead she wants to start a family.

“I don’t know about doing the show next year, I really don’t know," the pro dancer told the Daily Star newspaper. “I really want a family. And whatever life brings me, I’m going to do it, so I don’t mind what happens with Strictly.

“I think you have to take opportunities as they come and I might have a family to think about by next year. I really don’t know if I’ll want to come back.”

Ola, who joined the show back during series four in 2006, explained: “Strictly takes over your life. You might be partnered with someone who lives in Scotland.

"It would be really unfair if I had a family and had to go far away for training every week.

"I think you do have to pick career or family."

Meanwhile, Ola admitted it was "strange" and "hard" being on Strictly without James, who joined the same year as her.

“Everyone’s been lovely. They’ve all been really supportive but it’s still very strange for me to be there without James," she said. "I’m getting on with my job but I’m missing him very much.

“It’s hard being away from him. I’m going to try to enjoy it without him.”

Strictly starts this Friday and Saturday on BBC One.
