Strictly Come Dancing star SLAMMED by fans after making 'sexist' comment about his famous wife SuperNayr

Former Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan was slammed by fans after making a ‘sexist’ comment about wife Ola on Twitter on Saturday. 

The professional dancer, 46, who appeared on the BBC series alongside his wife, 41, took to social media to bemoan her skills around the house. 

Writing:  ‘Hi guys Anyone know a decent ironing lady in the West Malling area – as my wife is s**t at it.’

Racing to the comments section fans were quick to blast the dancer with one exclaiming: ‘Why don’t you do the ironing then?’.

While others wrote: ‘Learn to iron!’: ‘You should try your hand at it!’: ‘Try it yourself’:  ‘Try being an ironing man’: ‘Can’t you do it??’: Why does it have to be an ironing ‘lady’ lol and you can’t iron yourself because?’: ‘Do it yourself?’.

Following the backlash James wrote: ‘Well that last tweet went so much better than I thought it would’.

‘Just to clarify i do my own ironing but I hate it – and Ola hates ironing too. We had an amazing lady who has now retired hence need someone else. We are in the West Malling Area. Fans’.

Before finally posting: ‘Lastly – we are looking for an ironing “lady” not a “man” because although men are better we want to give a lady the opportunity because we are all about equality. Many thanks again for all your replies’.

The couple both made their debut on the BBC series in 2006 before James quit in 2013, followed by Ola two years later. 

Last year James again came under fire for ‘putting pressure on new mums’ by sharing a postpartum picture of Ola, with whom he shares tree-year-old daughter Ella, to promote their weight loss plan in a now-deleted post.

The couple have both been taking to Instagram to document their recent weight loss journey and Ola lost  3.5stone while James shed 3stone and the pair have since launched 12-week fitness programme Dance Shred.

But James’ post, which has since been deleted, sparked outrage after he posted before-and-after snaps of Ola holding their daughter.

One snap showed his wife holding a newborn Ella soon after giving birth, and a second, taken around two years later, showed Ola cuddling her child after her recent weight loss.

In a caption, James said Ola is now ‘half the woman she was’, while his wife shared the same post, saying she couldn’t believe how much she had ‘shrunk’.

However, James was criticised for using a postpartum snap of Ola for the ‘before’ picture, as they claimed it is ‘not a fair comparison’ and sends a ‘dangerous message’, according to The Express.

In comments shared by the publication, one fan fumed: ‘Please don’t use a postpartum picture to compare there’s enough pressure on new mums as it is I’m sure you have a photo from last year to use.’

Another reportedly added: ‘Not really a fair comparison considering she had not long given birth.’

While a third is said to have commented: ‘Honestly I understand you’re trying to push your ‘get fit with us’ business.. but the way your pushing your message is harmful. 

‘Wow look how amazing she is now half the woman she was – she was absolutely fine and probably only a size 12 before. It’s sending a dangerous message.’

And another was quoted saying: ‘Ola you look beautiful in both pictures. In the first one you look radiant having just popped out an adorable little girl and in the second one you look beautiful because you look how you want to and your daughter makes you happy.’

According to The Express, James had originally captioned the now-deleted post: ‘Wow! What a change! Ola is half the woman she was and Ella is nearly as big as her now [laughing face emoji].
