James Jordan has pledged to get fit again after gaining over three stone in weight over two years.

The former Strictly Come Dancing star, 42, has revealed on social media that he now weighs close to 15 and a half stone.

The gain comes two years on from his win on ITV skating competition Dancing On Ice in 2019.

James penned on Twitter : "Right I’m nearly 100kg about 15 1/2 stone and I've started trying to get fit again [vomit emoji]

"I’ve put on over 3 stone since @dancingonice I’m trying to run although suffering with my hip and shin splints

"Anyway… can anyone recommend a really good reliable heart rate monitor ?"
