GBS James Jordan


Once ranked one of the top Latin American dancers in the world, James Jordan is one of the UK’s best-loved dance champions but is now fast becoming better known as an outspoken TV personality in his own right.

Married to dance partner and star of ITV's 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Outta Here' Ola Jordan, they are celebrity power couple beyond the dance floor.

Following 8 years as one of the lead professionals on flagship show ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, James has gone on to become a TV personality in his own right.  James was Head Judge and Presenter on a groundbreaking show, Dancing on Wheels, which was produced by Fever Media.

From the tender age of 10 when he started dancing, it soon became clear that James had a gift and he went on to compete professionally and win endless awards and championships throughout his illustrious dance career.

His incredible talent was heightened when he was partnered with his now wife Ola, whom he met professionally when she was just 15.  They were perfect together and within three weeks Ola had moved to the UK and they became dance partners.

Within six months of meeting they entered their first competition and after this amazing partnership was formed they went on to compete all over the world, winning many championships and becoming one of the top 12 dance couples in the world, also representing England in the World Championships.

It wasn’t only their dance skills that blossomed on the dance floor, James and Ola fell in love and were married in October 2003.  They moved to Hong Kong where they both taught Latin American dancing for 4 years before becoming part of the BBC1 Strictly Come Dancing series.

James was also a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother 2014. 

A keen sportsman, James loves to take part in activities such as golf, pool, tennis, squash and riding his Motorbike a Honda CBR600RR and driving his many sports cars!  James can often be found at Brands Hatch taking part in track days with MSV.  He also owns a speedboat and loves water skiing and wake-boarding.  He is extremely competitive, and loves to take part in anything that means he can show this competitive streak!

James also teaches and runs his own dance events. He also took part in a celebrity version of 'Total Wipeout' and James appeared on 'Tonight's The Night', dancing with a very deserving member of the public.
