Ola and James Jordan have revealed their weight gain over recent years has had an effect on their sex life, which is ‘not as exciting’ as it once was.
The couple, who were both former professionals on Strictly Come Dancing, recently shared an unfiltered snap of their ‘mum and dad bods’ since having their daughter Ella two years ago.
Ola has revealed she went from 8st to 11.5st and James has gained 5st making him 16st overall.
The couple revealed that the reason for their weight gain was indulging in crisps, chocolate and junk food, which in turn has affected things in the bedroom.
Ola, 39, told The Sun: ‘The sex life is definitely different, if not worse, because we are so fat and don’t want to move after a bag of crisps and a Chinese.
‘The bellies get in the way of us when it comes to sex. And I’m a bit heavy now. It’s not as exciting.’

James, 44, added: ‘Sex is definitely not better with the mum and dad bods. I can’t throw her about any more like I am used to doing.
So we realise we need to switch up our eating habits to get back in shape. I would love to hold Ola over my head again.’
The pair, who have been together since 1999, acknowledge that the change in their bodies has come from eating more and moving less now that they are not in full dance training like they used to be.
James admits that he ‘prefers Ola smaller’ but still ‘loves and fancies her’ regardless of her size, adding: ‘Does it make me a bad person? If it does, then I’m sorry but I think it makes me honest,’ explaining that he tells her his honest opinion for ‘health reasons’.
Ola also revealed that she likes James’s big belly but does enjoy watching the chiselled torsos of the contestants on Love Island too.

The dancers admit that they are also feeling the effects on their stamina in other ways, with Ola revealing that she gets out of breath running up the stairs, and both are determined to lose weight for their health.
Ola had shared the photo of her and James standing in their swimwear by a swimming pool as she told her followers: ‘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).
‘Stay cool everyone. I think I need to avoid the ice cream for a while!!! Couples That Eat Together Stay Together.’
