Ola Jordan shares selfie from hospital bed


Ola Jordan shared a selfie from her hospital bed on Wednesday after having knee surgery. The Strictly Come Dancing star had the operation on Tuesday in a bid to save her dancing career after sustaining a serious knee injury while training for winter sports show The Jump.

On Wednesday the 32-year-old shared a series of pictures from hospital, telling fans she "can't wait to go home" to her husband James Jordan.

"Cheeky hospital selfie! …I think I'm bored! Can't wait to go home to see my boy @The_JamesJordan" she wrote.


She had earlier shared a photograph of her leg wrapped in a bandage as she thanked her followers for their support.

"Morning. Thank you again so much everyone for all your lovely messages xxx Here is my poor leg," she tweeted.

Ola damaged her hip and leg while training for Channel 4's The Jump at an indoor skiing centre in December. She sustained the injury two weeks before the end of her contract with Strictly, and had to be replaced with a different dancer for the show's big finale.

On Tuesday, Channel 4 confirmed that Chloe Madeley, the 27-year-old daughter of TV hosts Richard and Judy, will take Ola's place on The Jump.

Ola and her husband James have had a tough few weeks, as he collapsed over Christmas and was rushed to hospital complaining of chest and stomach pains.

"Spending our Xmas Day in Hospital," Poland-born Ola tweeted. "Wish someone could take @The_JamesJordan's pain away. And all he keeps saying is 'I'm sorry'."

The dancers have been keeping their followers updated on Twitter amidst their health troubles, with James telling them that it was "quite emotional" seeing his wife being taken away for surgery on Tuesday.
