James and Ola Jordan reveal how they really lost weight after being told they were obese | The Sun

STRICTLY couple James and Ola Jordan have opened up about their weight loss for the first time.

The pair recently revealed their slimmed down figures after getting a “wake up call” from an unflattering holiday photo.

James, 44, and Ola, 40, were horrified to discover they were in the “obese category” so vowed to get back on track following the birth of their daughter Ella in 2020.

In an Instagram video last night, James explained: “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.

Ola added: “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 continued: “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 admitted: “It's a hard pill to swallow.”

Explaining what they did to shed the pounds, James said:  “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.”

They revealed it was a mixture of exercise and diet, with Ola adding: “We still have our treats and still eat what we want but essentially you have to look at the whole picture.”
