Maidstone: Strictly stars James and Ola Jordan postpone Uncensored UK tour due to injury

By What's On reporter

Kent dancing couple James and Ola Jordan have announced they are postponing their UK tour after James was injured during rehearsals.

The announcement, which will give him longer to recuperate after an operation, came as their Uncensored tour was due to kick off on Saturday, March 3 in Blackpool.

The pair, who live near Maidstone, said in a statement: "We are devastated that James’ operation has caused us to postpone our tour as we were both so excited to dance together again for you all.

"We are so sorry to be letting so many people down, not only those who purchased tickets but all the cast and people that have helped work on the show to create something special.

"We hope you understand that health always comes first and hope for your continuous support in any of our future endeavours."

The tour had been due to be a "sexy, edgy interpretation" of their life story.

In a statement, tour management said the medical team had been pleased with his recovery so far, and that he would make a full recovery, but had strongly recommended a longer healing time.

Their show had been due to make one stop in Kent, at Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone, on Tuesday, March 6.

Those who had already booked tickets will receive a full refund and should look out for future announcements.

The couple joined the BBC's Strictly in 2006. James left the show in 2013 with Ola following two years later and since then James has been a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother and Ola has appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
