“His partner was Polish, and when I watched them dance together I was filled with just one thought: ‘I want to have a partner like that one day.’
“At one point during the competition I actually got introduced to this tall, dark stranger, very fleetingly. ‘Hello’, he smiled. And then he was gone.”
She continued: “The brief meeting stuck in my mind. I thought this guy would be incredible. I would really like a partner like him one day, I thought, but he was well out of my league.”
Months later, back home with her parents in Poland, Ola received a phone call from James’s partner.
She says: “To my amazement, the girl explained that she was the dance partner of the English dancer I’d seen and admired in Blackpool.
“His name was James Jordan, and it seemed that each of them had decided to look for another partner, in order to progress further.
“‘James would like to come to Poland and have a trial with you,’ the girl explained.”
Ola went on: “As well as being James’s dance partner, the girl who had phoned me was also his girlfriend.”
The star, who was 17 at the time, says she didn’t have any romantic intentions towards James initially.
She writes: “It didn’t bother me that he had a girlfriend. I was four and a half years younger than James and never considered for one moment that he could possibly be interested in a girl like me, not in that way.
“He was spoken for and was very renowned in the dance world, and I felt young and inexperienced by comparison.
“Nevertheless, when I saw James walk through arrivals at the airport my heart skipped a beat.”
