Ola Jordan not guaranteed Strictly return

Ola Jordan will be able to dance again after undergoing keyhole surgery on her knee - but is not guaranteed a place on 'Strictly Come Dancing.

The 32-year-old blonde star faced the potential end of her dancing career after suffering ligament damage on Channel 4's reality ski series 'The Jump'.

Ola - whose husband is former 'Strictly...' star James Jordan - has had positive news from medical experts, but BBC bosses are not yet going to commit to offering her a place back as a celebrity partner because they are angry she agreed to go on such a dangerous reality show.

A source told the Sunday People newspaper: "Show bosses believe it was ­irresponsible. After all the trouble they've had with her husband James they're ­considering whether it's worth having her back."

James, 37, left 'Strictly...' after the 2013 series after being told he would only be used as a dancer and not a celebrity partner for the 2014 run.

His exit was mired in bad feeling after he made the decision to attack the producers on social media.

Commenting on her Ola's 'Strictly...' status, a BBC spokesperson said: "Strictly's still over five months away, so no dancers are signed up yet.

"As soon as we have our dancer line-up confirmed, we will let viewers know."
