James Jordan slams Strictly Come Dancing

James Jordan has accused 'Strictly Come Dancing' of selling "horrible" stories about his wife Ola Jordan.

The 37-year-old professional dancer - who was axed from 'Strictly' in 2014 - has spoken out after his wife Ola and her partner Iwan Thomas became the first couple to be voted off the dance contest last night (04.10.15).

He wrote on Twitter: "I'm so proud of @The_OlaJordan After her injury just to get back on Strictly was a massive thing. And she's made another fried @Iwanrunner

"Now Ola's out hopefully @bbcstrictly can stop selling horrible stories about her. But thanks BBC for publicising her 2016 calendar #sexy (sic)."

The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant also accused the show of favouritism towards Peter Andre and his dance partner Janette Manrara.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, James said: "I love Peter but I wonder if he will open or close every show? Fairness."

Meanwhile, former Olympic sprinter Iwan admitted he was "gutted" to have his time on the competition cut short.

Speaking before he went head-to-head with Jamelia in the dance-off, he shared: "I'm gutted, I've said it all along, I'm obviously not a naturally talented dancer but I work hard and I'm going to give it everything in the dance-off."
