Ola and James Jordan look slimmer than ever on Lorraine as Strictly star is on the brink of tears over weight struggle | The Sun

OLA and James Jordan today looked slimmer than ever during an appearance on ITV's Lorraine where they opened up on their struggle with weight.

The Strictly favourites shifted more than 7st which they gained between them after Ola had daughter Ella, now two.

They caused a shock when they revealed they had piled on the pounds last year and gained what they called "mum and dad bods".

Ola went from a size eight to a size 12-14, weighing in at 11st 9lb, which she says happened after she gave up training and lived on junk food.

Speaking to host Lorraine Kelly today Ola, 40, said: "I really wasn't myself. I had never felt like that.

"The turning point came when I didn't want to go out. I didn't want to dress myself. So I stayed in and drank a glass of wine."

Ola looked ready to cry as she said: "I really wasn't myself Lorraine."

They've released a diet and exercise plan called Dance Shred and with the help of celeb dietician Jo Travers and nutritionist Amanda Ursell, they devised a diet where they eat calorie-controlled breakfasts, lunches and dinners and two daily snacks.

Orla has 1,500 calories per day, James 1,900.

The weight began dropping off after they started the diet in July and within two weeks 5ft 11in James was 10lb lighter, while 5ft 3in Ola had dropped 1st 2lb.

Ola says: "The beauty of this plan is that you don't feel hungry because you can have two snacks a day between meals.

We lost the weight over six months, a healthy way of doing it."

James adds: "Because we haven't eliminated anything from our diet, this plan is easy to stick to. The recipes are budget-friendly in these tricky times, starting at just 70p a head.
