Ola and James Jordan show off their incredible weight loss in Christmas Day video


Ola and James Jordan flaunted their slimmed-down physiques as they shared a festive video to Instagram on Christmas Day.

The former Strictly pro, 40, and her co-star husband, 44, showed off their incredible weight loss while joined by their daughter Ella, two, in front of the tree.

It comes after Ola admitted she was ‘horrified’ and ‘disappointed’ at what she perceived as her ‘mum bod’ after sharing a holiday photo in July. 

‘Eat as much as you want!’ Ola and James Jordan flaunted their slimmed-down physiques as they shared a video to Instagram on Christmas Day – five months after ‘horrifying’ holiday snap

However, the duo appeared to be in better shape than ever in the clip, where they also teased a major announcement for Boxing Day.

They also told their followers to ‘eat as much’ as they desire on the big day.

In the video, James said: ‘Our Christmas message to you is indulge as much as you want, don’t feel guilty, eat everything, isn’t it Ella?

‘Eat the Christmas pudding, eat the chocolates have extra stuffing, have a drink, a nice Bailey’s why not. Because tomorrow we are going to help you sort it all out.’

'Unflattering': Ola, 40, previously admitted she was 'horrified' and 'disappointed' at what she perceived as her 'mum bod' after sharing a holiday photo with Instagram followers in July

Ola concluded: ‘So just watch out for our big announcement tomorrow.’

James wrote in his caption: ‘Eat, drink and be merry guys! If you can’t overindulge today – when can you?! But don’t worry if you feel like an Xmas pudding by tonight – we’ve got some exciting news coming tomorrow. #christmas #christmasday #teaser.’

The TV personalities previously explained that a picture of them shared by Ola had been a ‘wake up call’ and motivated them to get into better shape.

James said that the pair had also both been told by a doctor that they were ‘in the obese category’ which convinced them to ‘shift a lot of timber’.

He began: ‘We’ve come on here today just to have a little chat with you, because so many people have commented and noticed that myself and Ola have lost a considerable amount of weight, which we have and we’re very proud of it.

‘Since Ola posted that unflattering picture back in the summer, we have both shifted a lot of timber.’

Ola chimed in to add: ‘I think we both needed that wake up call and realisation where we’d got ourselves to. We needed to change our ways and be healthy for Ella.’

James cut in: ‘Because we were unhealthy. We went to the doctor and were both told we were in the obese category. 

‘Which for us as professional dancers, to be told that you’re obese wasn’t very nice.’

Ola interjected: ‘It’s a hard pill to swallow.’

James went on: ‘It is hard and we were stuck there a very long time. We had to change something, which we did. We had to start moving more, exercising more and change our diet.’

The couple said they used a combination of exercise and watching what they ate as well as portion control.

Ola said: ‘We still have our treats and still eat what we want but essentially you have to look at the whole picture.’

Update: Captioning the video, they wrote: 'Wow guys! Blown away by your reaction to our dance video last night'

All change: Ola was widely praised on December 13 after revealing her dramatically slimmer figure

It comes after Ola and James received praise as they returned to the dance floor on Sunday evening, just days after revealing notably slimmer physiques during a night out in London.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday evening, James told fans: ‘We’re doing our first dance show in ages and ages and ages, and it’s so nice to be able to fit back into our dance costumes.’ 

Showing off his slimmer waistline, he added: ‘It was nice to dance again and be back in our old costumes and feel a little bit like our old selves.’ 

While James was praised for regaining his lean physique, he was also given a red flag for cracking a few jokes at Ola’s expense after claiming her tiny dress was ‘more like a hanky’ before she lost weight. 

The professional dancer also expressed mock disbelief at being able to manage his wife’s weight during their latest show, telling her: ‘I would’ve needed a crane to lift you before.’  

Commenting on the post, one follower wrote: ‘He needs to be careful !!! She looks stunning and he needs to start showing some respect to her.’ 

Delighted: 'We¿re doing our first dance show in ages and ages and ages, and it's so nice to be able to fit back into our dance costumes,' James told Instagram followers

A second added: ‘Now now James pot kettle black. Ola is a beauty you are lucky to have her. She knows your messing but sometimes words can hurt deep even though the person laughs it off. 

‘You both look good but be kind to each other little ears are around so body image for a girl starts very young so be careful.’ 

A third wrote: ‘You both look great and happy to be back. Not sure all the little digs and insults about being bigger are needed though, why can’t you just celebrate feeling happier and fitter without knocking the people you were before too?’

While a fourth commented: ‘You both look gorgeous and amazing and you are inside and out!’

Captioning the photo, she wrote: ‘Very rare night out for Mummy. Had to do a bathroom selfie.’

The post prompted a wave of encouraging messages from followers, with many praising the Polish-born dancer for losing weight in such a short space of time. 

Responding to the update, one impressed fan wrote: ‘Wow how much weight have you lost! You look sensational Ola.’

Echoing the thoughts of many, a fourth commented: ‘What’s your secret to the weight loss cos you are looking fantastic.’ [sic] 

Taking to his own Instagram platform, James, 44, revealed equally impressive weight loss results as he joined Ola for a photo, writing: ‘Mummy and Daddy working in London and honestly our first night away from Ella since she’s been born – I don’t know who’s more upset. Anyway – Mum and Dad are OUT OUT.’ 

Well done: The post prompted a wave of encouraging messages from followers, with many praising the Polish-born dancer for losing weight in such a short space of time

In July, Ola admitted she was appalled by her weight after sharing a holiday photo with followers.

Captioning the image, in which she posed alongside her husband in a bikini, she wrote: ‘Hi guys, I wasn’t going to post this picture but I’ve decided to because I’m horrified and so disappointed with myself and by posting it I’m hoping it will help motivate me to do something about it.

‘Our friend took this snap of us yesterday trying to stay cool by the pool but OMG… it was a total shock to say the least! When did we get ‘mum and dad bods’ ????

‘We know we’re not in our best Strictly shape but hey that’s what happens when you stop dancing for hours every day and have a baby (I just want to know James’ excuse)

‘Stay cool everyone. I think I need to avoid the ice cream for a while!!! Couples That Eat Together Stay Together.’

Speaking about how her weight gain has affected their love life, James admitted sex with his wife is ‘is definitely not better with mum and dad bods’, while Ola confessed gaining three stone has made her love life ‘worse’.  

Ola said she used to weigh 8st and now weighs 11½st, while former dancer James put on 5st and weighs 16st. 

She told The Sun‘The sex life is definitely different, if not worse, because we are so fat and don’t want to move after a bag of crisps and a Chinese.

‘The bellies get in the way of us when it comes to sex and I’m a bit heavy now. It’s not as exciting.’

James added: ‘Sex is definitely not better with the mum and dad bods, I can’t throw her about any more like I am used to doing.’

The couple – who starred as a Strictly professional from 2006 to 2013 – tied the knot back in 2003 and welcomed their first child Ella together in 2020.

Ella, now two, was conceived after one round of IVF, with Ola and James previously being incredibly open about their battle to conceive.

She told The Sun: ‘You don’t think you’re going to have to go through IVF until it doesn’t happen for a long time and you go ‘right there’s a problem, we need to look into it’.’

‘So I suppose I would try earlier. But then we had a career, we were doing things, we were busy. I suppose you’re never ready but I definitely would (have tried earlier) if I knew I was going to struggle to get pregnant.’
