Ex-Strictly Come Dancing star Ola Jordan is pregnant with her first child after undergoing a “tough process” of IVF.

The 36-year-old and husband James, 41, said their baby appeared to be dancing in their 12-week scan.

Ola told Hello! magazine: “I still can’t quite believe it… I don’t think it’s properly sunk in.”

She became pregnant on the first round of IVF and the baby is due in March.
