Ola Jordan has recalled how her leg "snapped" while in training for The Jump.

The dancer had been lined up for the 2015 Channel 4 series but never made it to the first show.


In fact, she never even made it to Austria, instead suffering a nasty injury on the slopes of an indoor facility in Hemel Hempstead.

“I can’t blame anyone but myself,” Ola said of the injury. “Skiing is dangerous and it could have happened on a holiday with James [Jordan, Ola's husband]

“I wasn’t doing a jump and I wasn’t even abroad, I was doing a bit of practice in Hemel Hempstead."


Recalling her incident two years ago, Ola explained: “My leg just went in a funny direction and snapped. It was devastating, just horrible.

“I didn’t know if I’d be able to walk properly or run, let alone dance.”

Despite The Jump coming under fire for the amount of injuries suffered by its celeb cast, Ola has nothing but praise for the show's team.

“The Jump looked after me and I was in Harley Street for physio five hours a day, every day, for six months," she revealed to the Sunday Post. “I was signed off at the end of June, was dancing again in July and had my first Strictly pro rehearsal in August.

“I was so nervous on the first day but by the second and third day that went away."
