James Jordan: ‘Broke down’ Dancing On Ice star’s ‘tearful’ moment amid couple’s heartbreak
James Jordan, 41, and his wife Ola Jordan, 37, often share insights into their relationship via their respective social media accounts. The Dancing On Ice champion has now opened up about the couple’s struggles as he admitted to becoming emotional backstage.
Speaking on Loose Women, the dancing duo reflected on their successful IVF journey for fertility week earlier this year but admitted things had not always been smooth-sailing.
James and Ola have been married for 20 years but endured a long road to parenthood.
The former Strictly stars revealed they hid their problems to conceive from their family including James’ parents.
He explained: “My parents didn’t even know, so when we told them they were very tearful.”

James admitted the couple didn’t inform either of their parents becuase theey didn’t want them to “worry” about their IVF struggles.
“You get to that age in life where you think, they don’t need more stress,” the dancer said: “They’ve got their own issues.”
But the former Strictly star later turned to Loose Women star Saira Khan, who appeared on Dancing On Ice with him and quizzed her on an emotional moment he had on the show.
James recalled: “Do you remember on Dancing On Ice, I broke down one night because someone started speaking about it.
“I broke down in front of everyone because when I’m with Ola, it’s the man thing of being strong. People started talking about [IVF] and I just broke down in front of everyone. It was tough.”
The couple went through a three-year wait before Ola successfully became pregnant last year.
The pair welcomed their daughter into the world last month, as they both shared a heartwarming snap of their newborn’s feet resting in their hands.
Despite the recent news of their new arrival, James asked fans for their support after his dad was rushed to hospital following a stroke this week.
