Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan has revealed the one thing that “annoyed” him after becoming famous.

Mr Jordan rose to fame when he appeared on the popular dancing show back in 2006.

He continued on the show for eleven series’, before leaving after he was eliminated in 2013.

And speaking alongside his wife and fellow dancer, Ola Jordan, James said that while most fans have always been great with the pair, some supporters took it too far.

He said: “Generally, people have been so nice, we were actually living in Hong Kong at the time when we were asked to do it.

“We did a competition in Blackpool, we did really well in the competition, we were scouted by someone from the BBC.

“But we weren’t actually living in this country, we were living in Hong Kong for about four years and then we moved back from there to do the show.”

Ola added: “People are really nice, people even stop us even now.”

Before James continued: “It was a little bit annoying at the beginning when people were knocking on your door at home at 9 o’clock at night and asking them to sign your book and things like that.

“That started to get on my t*** a bit. But generally people were lovely.
