Strictly Come Dancing's Ola Jordan says she is still friends with most of her former celebrity dance partners.

Jordan revealed she is leaving the show after 10 years to focus on other opportunities.

Talking on It Takes Two, when asked if she had a favourite celebrity partner she told Zoe Ball: "I couldn't pick. Obviously, they were all different - in dancing and personalities; in ability - but they were all great. I'm friends with most of them."

She said even after all the time she has been with the show, she still gets nervous ahead of performances.

"You're nervous for your partners as well, but you try not to show it too much, because they get more nervous than you," she added.

Musing over what she would miss the most, she said definitely the live shows and being part of a massive production, as well as " the people I work with. All of them".

Explaining why she was leaving, she said in an interview earlier in the year that it was something she had been thinking about for a long time.

She told The Sun: " It's a huge thing as Strictly has been such a massive part of my life for so long and I've made so many great friends, but it's time to go."

:: Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two is on weeknights at 6.30pm on BBC 2.
