Ola Jordan: I'm A Celebrity will show people I'm a normal girl

Updated: 

Ola Jordan has said going onto I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! will give her the chance to show people she is a "normal girl" behind the glitz and glamour.

The former Strictly Come Dancing professional is no stranger to sequins and sparkle but said viewers would get to see a more natural look when she gets into the jungle.

She said: "A chance for me to go into the camp with no big hair, make up and skimpy dresses on.

"I want people to realise I'm a normal girl."

She went on: "I am looking forward to people seeing me in there and not the images they see in the press."

But Ola won't be leaving the dance floor behind altogether, as she has vowed to teach her camp mates a few moves.

She said: "If there is anyone who wants to learn to dance in the jungle, I will teach them.

"It will while away a few hours and you are exercising too. It will be fun."

Ola is married to fellow former Strictly star James Jordan (who she said thinks she is "nuts" for going on I'm A Celeb) and admitted it will be tough to be away from him.

"I'm going to really miss him and my family and friends so much and I don't know if I will get emotional in the jungle," she said.

"I'm quite hardcore and in the past, when I have seen someone cry, I always go 'OMG for goodness sake, it's only a few weeks', but if I get a letter or video from my husband, then maybe, I will get emotional.

"We'll just have to wait and see."
