Strictly females in a panic after Ola nip slip

Ola Jordan’s wardrobe malfunction has worried the Strictly contestants about the live shows.

The professional dancer, 32, was left red faced when her top fell down as she celebrated being paired with athlete Iwan Thomas last Saturday.

As the launch was pre-recorded, producers were able to edit cleverly and preserve her dignity. But the near miss has fellow female stars quaking in their dancing shoes.

According to British newspaper the Daily Star, Sky Sports presenter and Strictly contestant Kirsty Gallacher said the thought of something similar happening to her is “horrendous”.

Newsreader Katie Derham added: “We don’t want any wardrobe malfunctions.”

But while the others fret, Ola is just glad to be back on the dancefloor, wardrobe malfunctions and all. She suffered ligament damage to her hip and knee while filming Channel 4’s The Jump earlier this year and feared she’d never make it back to Strictly.

“I didn't understand the injury at the time and how bad it was. I didn't know whether I'd be able to walk again, be able to run, let alone dance,” she previously told the Sunday People's Janine Yaqoob.

“It's the worst thing I've ever been through. It was very hard.”

Ola has been on Strictly since 2006, when she was partnered with DJ Spoony but disappointingly was eliminated in the second week.

In 2009 she emerged victorious with dance partner Chris Hollins, beating Ricky Whittle and Natalie Lowe in the final.
