Dancing on Ice star James Jordan and his professional dancer wife Ola - who both starred in Strictly Come Dancing - have revealed that they aren't trying for a baby. After quitting Strictly in 2015, 33-year-old Ola said the couple would like to start a family in the future, but explained that they were too busy. In an interview with The Sun last year, the star revealed that having babies still isn't on the cards. She said: "James and I have always said that we would really like to start a family, but the time has never been quite right before. When I left Strictly two years ago I thought I was ready, but I was offered I'm A Celebrity, and that lead to other jobs I felt I couldn’t turn down." Ola added: "There was always something, but at the same time having children was always in the back of my mind."

Ola and James have been happily married since 2003

Speaking to the Mirror in 2015, she said: "Coming out of Strictly means I still want to enjoy my time with James. I'm at that age now where people expect you to be pregnant or have a child. People say, 'Hurry up. You're not getting any younger.' Every time we see my dad he says, 'Where's the baby?' It's not rude for people to ask us though, as we've been married so long. We've been together 17 years and married for 13. It's a long time. We're best friends and we like spending time together. Even though we work together, we spend all of our free time together too."

The couple will be tuning in to watch the 2016 series of Strictly

Ola announced her decision to leave Strictly four years ago, following in the footsteps of James, who quit in 2014 after eight years on the show. But she revealed she is still a fan! "It will be very strange to watch it," Ola admitted. "I'm definitely going to miss parts, but I'll enjoy seeing it from the outside. I had an amazing 10 years and it was definitely time to move on. It's good to leave on a high."
