The pro dancer is believed to be severing the ties with the BBC and leaving ‘Strictly’, and new reports suggest she could be set for a stint in the Borehamwood bungalow, alongside Kristina Rihanoff.
A source close to the show is quoted as telling the Star: “Ola made up her mind pretty quickly she was going to go in after being offered the chance to be a contestant.
“Husband James is delighted she’s going in and has been giving her tips on how to survive life with cameras on you 24/7.
“She isn’t nervous, she’s a confident girl. And she knows Kristina very well so she’ll already have a friend for support.”
Ola and the BBC aren’t exactly parting ways amicably, and the dancer has ruffled a few feathers with claims that the ‘Strictly’ leaderboard is fixed - comments that were immediately disputed by head judge Len Goodman.
The ‘CBB’ house will open its doors again in January, and other stars believed to be considering calling the pad home include former ‘Hollyoaks’ actress Stephanie Davis.
