James Jordan

James CAN dance on ice!

It may only be Week 1, but it's fair to say James has knocked it out of the park! Or should that be the rink?

Despite a wobbly start to training, it's clear he's finally nailed those skating basics - and then some!

Bye bye ballroom, hello ice rink!

Strictly star James Jordan is swapping the Samba for a pair of skates, and while the 40-year-old may have more dance experience than most, his footwork on the ice still needs plenty of polishing.

“I can’t ice skate, so it’s a lot harder than I thought,” he said. “I want to really enjoy my time on the show. I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself because I know everyone is expecting me to be good, but I think they should bring their expectations down a bit. I’m going to work hard - as hard as I can.”

We know how much hard graft the professionals put in, so we’re expecting nothing less from James! But this time he’ll be the student with returning Finnish pro Alexandra Lukasz putting him through his paces.
