Ola Jordan claims Strictly Come Dancing bosses banned her sexiest outfits

Strictly Come Dancing's Ola Jordan has claimed she was 'banned' from wearing sexy outfits on the show.

The former pro dancer, who announced her exit from the series last year, reckons Strictly bosses thought that her famous catsuits were getting a bit too raunchy.

"I loved wearing the catsuits but after a while they stopped me. I think they thought they were too sexy," Ola told the Daily Mirror newspaper.

A source alleged to the tabloid that Ola originally felt the move was made to restrict her success on the show.

"At the time Ola was outraged, she thought it was a fix and another example of how they manipulate votes," the insider claimed. "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 a Strictly source hit back at the suggestion, telling the newspaper this week: “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.”

Ola is one of five pros to have quit the show this year, leaving alongside Kristina Rihanoff, Aliona Vilani, Tristan MacManus and Gleb Savchenko.

Strictly returns to BBC One this autumn.
