The star has shared he went through the troubling ordeal while his dad, who experienced seven seizures in one day, remains in hospital after suffering a second stroke.

He told Hello!: "I was on FaceTime to him this morning and he had a seizure during our conversation and it is absolutely horrendous to see, so that really upset me today. Yesterday he had around seven seizures and no one knows why."

The 42-year-old added that it has been a struggle for his mother who is not able to visit her husband due to restrictions on hospital visits because of the coronavirus.

Jordan added to the publication: "She's been on the phone to him when he's had seizures as well. I mean, you see all of these people going to the beach right next to each other and they say they're going to open the shops, and yet my mum still can't go in and sit next to my dad when he's very sick in hospital? It's quite upsetting and frustrating."

It comes after the Dancing on Ice champion shared his father had also contracted the coronavirus during his first stay in hospital in April while receiving treatment for his first stroke.

After a second stroke in May, Jordan disclosed via Twitter that his father had been readmitted.

The professional dancer welcomed his first child into the world in February as wife Ola gave birth to a daughter, Ella.

He shared back in April that the tot had to be taken to hospital after they feared she was choking on her own saliva.

It transpired Ella was suffering from reflux and thankfully went on to recover.
