Both Ola Jordan and reigning champion Aliona Vilani stepped down from the BBC dance show when the most recent series wrapped up, with new reports claiming that ‘I’m A Celeb’ producers are hoping to snag one of them to go Down Under this year.
A show insider tells The Mirror: “Aliona and Ola are absolutely gorgeous and were massively popular on ‘Strictly’, but there would only be room for one.
Ola has repeatedly hit the headlines since stepping down as a professional dancer on ‘Strictly’, most notably when she spoke out against the show in her new, imaginatively-titled autobiography, ‘Strictly Ola’.
So far, only one ‘Strictly’ pro has ever taken part in ‘I’m A Celebrity’, with Vincent Simone appearing in the jungle in 2013, though both James Jordan and Kristina Rihanoff have appeared on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.
Meanwhile, on Thursday (22 September) Vicky Pattison confirmed rumours that she was taking on a new presenting role on ITV2’s ‘I’m A Celebrity’ spin-off, with fellow new recruits Stacey Solomon and Chris Ramsey set to join Joe Swash.
