Polish-born Aleksandra (Ola) is a Latin American specialist and, with her husband James, is taking part in Strictly Come Dancing for the first time.

Ola and James have been dancing together for six years, professionally for the last three years.

Although initially quiet and subdued, Ola is bubbly and talkative once she comes out of her shell, so Spoony should watch out as Ola says: “I’m not afraid to be nasty if that’s what it takes.”

Ola’s favourite dance is the samba, and outside dancing she is a yoga fanatic – which helps keeps her toned and supple for dancing.
