James Jordan, 44, was inundated with support over the weekend after he explained that his daughter’s illness meant he was unable to tweet his popular Strictly Come Dancing critiques throughout Saturday’s live show.

James shares two-year-old Ella with his wife and former Strictly co-star Ola, 40, and he regularly keeps fans updated with cute pics of their adorable family.

After several fans took to social media to question why James was so silent during Saturday’s Strictly, he responded: “Unfortunately guys – Ella is really unwell so won’t be tweeting tonight. Big love to all.”

Hundreds soon took to the comments to share messages of support and to wish Ella well.

Mairi penned: “Hope Ella gets better soon. There’s nothing worse than seeing your little one unwell. Sending love to all three of you xxx.”

Kath echoed: “Aww, sending a big cwtch to her from Wales. Hope she’s feeling much better soon.”

And Maggie added: “Hope little Ella is ok and has you both run ragged again soon poor toots. It’s horrible seeing your little ones sick. I hope you all get some sleep xx.”

In a follow-up tweet, James said Ella had been struggling with a nasty ear infection, however assured fans that she is “a fighter”.

He wrote: “Hi guys – thanks for all of the lovely messages about Ella.

“She’s still quite poorly but doing better. After one month of being ill she now has ear infection in both ears so been a tough few days. But she’s a Jordan and a fighter!”

It comes after James and Ola opened up about Ella’s struggles at nursery, which they say can be “quite extreme”.

Ola told Hello: “Ella still isn’t settling very well at nursery. The staff told us she has separation anxiety.

“It was taking her a long time to settle and then she’d cry twice every hour. They said that was quite a lot but she was getting much better, although she’s not like the other children – she’s quite extreme.”

James then added: “She was terrible this morning. She was really screaming. Even in the morning when she woke up, she said, ‘I don’t want to go to nursery’.

“It breaks your heart every time. It feels horrible. She’s really struggling.”

James and Ola are of course best known for their years spent as professional dancers on Strictly Come Dancing.

The competition continues next weekend as the likes of Hamza Yassin, Helen Skelton and Will Mellor battle it out for a place in the semi-final.

Strictly Come Dancing continues Friday, December 2, at 8pm on BBC One.
