Over the last year, James Jordan has become a bit like Marmite. You either love him, or you hate him. Some of his opinionated tweets have made some Strictly Fans cringe and scroll through his tweets as quickly as they can whilst checking their twitter feeds. We love Marmite as much as we love anything Strictly-related so sat to watch Seven Days with James and Ola in suspense!
So, what was our verdict of the show? Well, surprisingly, we loved it!
We definitely saw a softer side to James who said “I don’t just love Ola because she’s gorgeous on the outside, but she’s a beautiful person inside! (sic)” *sound of heart melting* Later on in the show, whilst they were both at the gym we saw Ola say that James is caring and always tells her to be careful Baby! It was clear to see that there is a lot of love between these two and they care for eachother so much!
There were comedy moments too, including watching James being attacked by his nieces and nephews on a giant bouncy castle! We heard how they were desparate for children and feel they’ll make fun parents. James’ bedtime discipline/bribery would work perfectly with my little lady who suddenly turned all Supernanny, telling me “Mummy and Daddy, he needs to do what you do and tell them bedtime stories!”
We learnt that James left Strictly because it had turned into something he didn’t like anymore. After all the tweets last year, we think there may be some truth in this, but are still a little dubious of the editing. *puts on detective hat to investigate.*
We also saw Ola take her first dance steps with James since her accident and be given the all clear for Strictly and a future touring show they are planning with Arlene Phillips. Watching the pair of them dance, we saw magic that we missed on last year’s Strictly. Yes, Pasha and Ola made a great partnership, but James and Ola are such a talented couple and their dancing together is 100% natural.
Overall, we really enjoyed this show and would love to see some of our other Strictly Pros do a Seven Days With Style show. We’d love to hear what you thought of the show. Let us know by commenting below or tweeting @scd_support.
We look forward to hearing from you.
