Ola Jordan has been inundated with support after sharing a bikini picture saying she said she felt both “disappointed” and “horrified” by her “mum bod”.

The 39-year-old - who appeared on Strictly Come Dancing from 2006 to 2015 - shares her two-year-old daughter Ella with fellow former Strictly professional dancer James Jordan, 44.

Uploading the photo to Instagram featuring her and her other half, she said she was posting it as “motivation” for herself.

She wrote alongside the image: “Hi guys, I wasn’t going to post this picture but I’ve decided to because I’m horrified and so disappointed with myself and by posting it I’m hoping it will help motivate me to do something about it.

“Our friend took this snap of us yesterday trying to stay cool by the pool but OMG... It was a total shock to say the least! When did we get ‘mum and dad bods’ ????

“We know we’re not in our best Strictly shape but hey that’s what happens when you stop dancing for hours every day and have a baby (I just want to know James’ excuse).”

She signed off by writing: “Stay cool everyone. I think I need to avoid the ice cream for a while!!! Couples That Eat Together Stay Together.”

Her celebrity friends rushed to the comments section to offer their encouragement.

“You both still look bloody amazing! Hate to read you put yourself down! You are stunning Ola! And both amazing people abs parents,” penned former Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby.

“I love you for posting this!” wrote ex Hollyoaks actress Ali Bastian.“You look beautiful, you guys look fab! D and I are in very different shape since having a little one and also parenting in a pandemic has been insane!!!!! We need to all cut ourselves some slack!! Loads of love to you both.”

“Love you both,” Zoe Ball said.

Kimberley Walsh sent two love heart emojis.

Not wanting to be left out, Mr Jordan responded by asking his wife “have you been drinking?”

“We just look different babe - but OMG I look old.”
