GMB: Strictly’s James Jordan discusses death of his father

Former Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan has vowed to drop the pounds after revealing he is “borderline fat”.

The professional dancer – who recently stripped off on ITV ’s Strictly The Real Full Monty – said he is tipping the scales at nearly 16 stone.

Taking to Instagram, the 43-year-old shared a health update with his 239,000 followers.

He wrote: “Right!!! I need to sort my s***. 2021 I gave up smoking after smoking for over 27 years.

“Now I feel I kind of have that under control I need to control the crap I put in my mouth.

“I want to become more healthy and exercise more regular like I used to.”

James said he weighed around 12 stone when he was Strictly



James continued: “I will never get my old body back but to be honest I don’t really want to.

“When I was on Strictly for example I fluctuated between 72kg and 75kg and when I look back I was too small.

“I’m not worried about how much I weigh but it’s a fact for my height and build 100kg is unhealthy and borderline fat. Watch this space!”

The dancing pro, who is married to fellow Strictly alumni Ola Jordan, recently revealed he had lost almost two stone.

Speaking about his stint on Strictly The Real Full Monty, which aired in December, he said: “I’m not young, I’m not looking like I did when I was on Strictly.

“I’ve been running and I’ve lost nearly two stone… I was quite conscious of getting my body out and people going, ‘Wasn’t that the guy who used to be on Strictly.’”

The strip helped raise money for cancer charities



Post-Christmas, James revealed he has put back on all the weight he lost for the show, which helped raised money for cancer charities.

His pal, Olympic track star Colin Jackson who also appeared on The Real Full Monty, showed some moral support on social media saying: “You’ll do it… back to 12 stone.”

To which James replied: “I put all that weight back on that I lost for TFM” followed by a crying emoji face. “Well, you can get it right off again!” Colin reassured him.

James was a pro dancer on Strictly from 2006 to 2013



Fans were also quick to praise the ex-Strictly star saying he still looked great.

One said: “You still look good to me , but you’re right it’s about health xxx”

Another wrote: “Wow! You definitely don’t look 15 and a half stone! I wouldn’t have thought you need to lose very much at all!”

“For a bloke your size that weight is nothing, just praise yourself for stopping smoking!” said a third.

Others praised James – who has 23-month-old daughter Ella with wife Ola – for giving up smoking.

In reference to James losing his dad to a terminal brain tumour in March last year, one fan wrote: “Well done 27 years your dad would be so proud of you and you will be fitter to see Ella grow up and be much healthier.”
