James Jordan, 41, and his pregnant wife Ola Jordan, 37, regularly take to social media to spill on the all the latest details surrounding Strictly Come Dancing 2019. It was no different when the duo divulged all in their latest column.
The former Strictly professional dancer spoke out about the moment Motsi Mabuse, 38, described Neil Jones, 37 and Alex Scott, 35, Jive routine as an “affair” between a couple.
Speaking in Hello! James said: “Maybe she didn’t know what was happening! We had to rewind it and I nearly peed myself! It was so awkward.
“People are saying, ‘Oh she obviously didn’t know what she was saying,’ and I’m sure she didn’t realise what she was saying, but when she said it you could see in her face that she knew what she had said!”
He continued: It was just Neil’s face for me! He was trying not to laugh.
“But we’re not thinking anything about that. We’re together all the time training, and we’re so immersed in Strictly and doing everything for the show, so that stuff hasn’t even entered our thoughts.”
Neil continued, saying it was all “dancing, dancing, dancing, a little bit of sleep, dancing, dancing, dancing…”.
Meanwhile, Alex hit back at claims she was “fuming” at being reunited with Neil following his injury.
The former England footballer allegedly “made it clear” to BBC bosses that she wanted to pursue the competition with her new partner Kevin Clifton who was standing in for Neil.
However, Alex took to Twitter and dismissed the claims, saying: “Got to admit it though, I do feel like the luckiest girl alive. Not everyone gets to dance with two amazing people on @bbcstrictly. Who would ever want to complain about that, lol @keviclifton is part of #teamred.”(sic)
She accompanied the post with her snap of herself standing in between both Neil and Kevin.
In an earlier post, Alex tweeted: “Just woke up to this news. Contrary to reports – I think you can see the joy on our face last night as we danced our Jive #teamred is very happy to be back together @Mr_NJones.”
