James Jordan reveals he's put on three stone in two years and now weighs 15 and a half stone

JAMES Jordan has revealed that he now weighs 15 and a half stone after gaining three stone in two years.

The 42-year-old star admitted that he'd piled on the pounds since the last series of Dancing On Ice, which he won in March 2019.

Taking to his Twitter page, the former Strictly pro wrote: "Right I’m nearly 100kg about 15 1/2 stone and I’ve started trying to get fit again 🤮

"I’ve put on over 3 stone since @dancingonice".

James went on to share why he is struggling to lose weight, adding: "I’m trying to run although suffering with my hip and shin splints.

"Anyway… can anyone recommend a really good reliable heart rate monitor?"

James previously revealed that he was around 12 stone when he took part on the ITV skating series.

However, when wife Ola fell pregnant later that year he confessed to gorging on doughnuts after her cravings meant that there were treats in their house.

He said at the time: "She keeps on wanting doughnuts and I eat all the doughnuts."

They welcomed baby Ella in February last year, and it appears that being a new dad and life in lockdown has not helped his diet.

James shot to fame as a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing but quit in 2013 after eight series.

And he previously shared that after leaving the show he was so overweight and inflexible that he could no longer bend down to tie his own shoelaces.

James explained at the time: “I have been skinny for most of my life and worked really hard but after I quit Strictly I wanted to enjoy life.

“I stopped exercising and would eat out all the time and socialise with friends.

“Indian takeaway is one of my favourites and I would often order a prawn dhansak with egg-fried rice and naan bread. I also ate a lot of fast food like KFC."

He poignantly added: "I hate getting older, to be honest. There are times when I pass the mirror and catch sight of myself and think, ‘Who the hell is that?’"
