Strictly Come Dancing: Ola Jordan Eyes Alesha Dixon's Judging Job (VOTE)

Strictly Come Dancing professional Ola Jordan has found the perfect female judge to replace deserter Alesha Dixon - herself.

Alesha caused a stir when she decided to leave the panel of the BBC hit to sign a deal with the show's arch-rival Simon Cowell on this year's new-look Britain's Got Talent.

Gossip has been rife over who will take her seat on the panel, with some reports suggesting ousted former judge Arlene Phillips would make a sensational comeback.

However, ballroom whiz Ola, who has been with the series since 2006, is adamant BBC bosses should choose a professional dancer as their next panellist - and she has nominated herself as the perfect edition to the male-focused desk.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: "I would like to see me replacing Alesha. I would be a good judge.

"It has to be someone interesting and I think they are looking for a girl, so here I am! I've done six series, I'm a dancer and I've won it.

"I hope they choose someone to do with dancing because much as I liked Alesha, she didn't say anything interesting to me as a professional dancer."

Ola, who waltzed away as the winner with Chris Hollins in 2009, insists she won't be soft on her husband James Jordan, who is also one of Strictly's professionals.

She adds: "You're going to see the nasty side of me. I would have to criticise James too. I'd be fine with that."

Sounds like someone already thinks they've got the job, but she'll have some stiff competition - the potential new judges are tipped as 2010's champ Kara Tointon, ballet supremo Darcey Bussell and former Strictly dancer Karen Hardy.

But again, Ola is backing herself: "Karen has been mentioned. Darcey would be great, we've had her on the show before. But I think Ola would be best!"
