Ex Strictly pro Ola Jordan confirmed for I'm A Celebrity 2016 line up


Former Strictly Come Dancing pro Ola Jordan has been confirmed for ITV's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

Ola is one of ten celebs on the official I'm A Celebrity 2016 cast due to enter the jungle on Sunday.

Ola said: "This is such a great chance for me to go into the Jungle and show people that I am a normal girl. I am looking forward to people seeing me in there and not the images they see in the press.”

Ola quit Strictly last year after nine series and admitted before heading to Australia that she "hates everything."

But the blonde beauty vowed: “I am going to embrace the experience though and of course I will be packing some bikinis, you’ve got to haven’t you?”

And Ola quipped: “If there is anyone who wants to learn to dance in the Jungle, I will teach them. It will while away a few hours and you are exercising too. It will be fun.”

Meanwhile, Ola admitted she’s a bad chef. “I am a terrible cook, But I think I will always help out. I am the person who will do stuff, I am not lazy. I will clean up and I think I will be quite fun in camp. I want to enjoy myself and I don’t take things too seriously.”

And as a professional dancer, Ola is used to maintaining a strict diet. Being forced to eat rice and beans all the time won’t, she insists, be a problem. But she admits lack of sugar will be tough. “People are going to struggle and I am going to struggle, we do eat quite a lot of sugar in our daily lives.”

Ola is married to her professional dance partner and fellow former Strictly pro James. “He thinks I am nuts doing the Jungle” Ola revealed. “But he is really proud.”

I'm A Celebrity 2016 starts Sunday night at 9PM on ITV.
