In the dancing video, the former Strictly professional wore a plunging green floral mini dress as she and her toddler boogied around to Humpty Dumpty. 

Ola swung her arms side to side in her summery frock, before twirling around in a bid to get her daughter to mimic her dance moves. 

Little Ella looked utterly adorable in a pink romper boasting pretty frills, as she stomped around in cute fuchsia shoes.

Earlier in the week, James had taken to Instagram to share a video of himself shirtless as he twirled his baby daughter Ella around while boogying together in the kitchen.

As the former Strictly professional shared the video of the sweet moment, he joked that he’s got the ‘dad bod to go with the dad dancing’.

While Boogie Wonderland by Earth, Wind & Fire, The Emotions played out, James could be seen getting his groove on while clad in nothing but a pair of brick red shorts.

Delighted by her father’s enthusiasm, little Ella copied his moves and followed his guidance as he got her to twirl around while in her nappy and striped pink T-shirt.

James wrote alongside the video: ‘After Ella’s appearance on Loose Women yesterday, many of you have been asking if we ever dance with her so I thought you’d like to see me doing a bit of dad dancing with our little princess.

‘She’s got the moves right?! And yes I know – I’ve got the dad bod to go with the dad dancing. Don’t judge me – I’ve not needed to wear tight Lycra for a while (thank God!)’

James’ adorable video came a a day after he and wife Ola, 39, took little Ella for her first TV appearance on Monday’s Loose Women.

The mother-of-one admitted she feels she has let herself go as she discussed her weight gain since welcoming her daughter, explaining she and James find it difficult to fit in any exercise.

Ola recently shared a bikini snap where she told followers she has ‘always struggled’ with her weight and admitted to being ‘horrified’ and ‘shocked’ over her fuller physique.

She said: ‘It’s just accepting what you are now. Obviously I had an amazing body on Strictly, everyone used to look up to me. Coming to the realisation that it’s not the same and it’s not going to be the same anymore…’

James added: ‘We’re not training ten hours a day like we used to,’ with Ola agreeing: ‘Yeah, it’s really hard. It’s finding time. Ella takes everything, she is everything.’

The dad-of-one admitted: ‘It’s not rocket science is it? It’s what you eat. If you’re not exercising, you’re going to put on weight.

‘I always said to Ola, you’ve always flucated with weight, because I was training so much all the time, I could eat whatever I wanted and said, ‘I don’t understand why people put on weight’, and then put on three stone after Strictly’.

Speaking about her self-esteem, Ola admitted she currently doesn’t feel happy with her current appearance, explaining: ‘‘People say, ‘you look great’ but I don’t feel like that. I don’t feel like I’m in my body, it’s weird.’

James added: ‘It gets harder as you get older as well.’

It comes after Ola recently spoke about learning to accept her ‘mum bod’ after sharing her bikini snap. 

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Ola revealed that James loves to ‘take the mickey’ out of her for her weight, but admits she knows ‘he loves me whatever size I am’, despite neither of them being in ‘Strictly shape’.

She said: ‘You know what James is like – he’s always taking the mickey. He jokes I’m not the woman he married but then I say to him – what about you and your big belly?! 

‘But obviously we don’t really mean it – much! I know he loves me whatever size I am but let’s face it neither of us look in Strictly shape do we – so we’ve got matching mum and dad bods now!’

The mum-of-one opened up on how her priorities have changed since having her daughter, with her no longer worrying as much about her diet.

She said: 'It's just accepting what you are now. Obviously I had an amazing body on Strictly, everyone used to look up to me. Coming to the realisation that it's not the same and it's not going to be the same anymore...'

She said: ‘It’s just accepting what you are now. Obviously I had an amazing body on Strictly, everyone used to look up to me. Coming to the realisation that it’s not the same and it’s not going to be the same anymore…’

She said: ‘To be honest I’ve always struggled with my weight. I was always one of the curviest girls on Strictly amongst the professional dancers.

‘It’s never been easy for me. So now it’s been enjoyable not to be watching what I’ve been eating and to have a drink and some chocolate when I want.

‘And definitely since having Ella my priorities have changed – she is my number one priority now. So I have better things to think about than a 24 inch waist!’

She added: ‘My outlook has totally changed since being a mother. I’m looking after this little person who totally depends on me, so worrying about how I look is not top of my list.’

Despite this, Ola confessed she still has her low moments, admitting: ‘I don’t feel like I’m in my right body because I’ve never been this big before and I’m not used to having to cover up my body and hide away behind baggy clothes.’

Now: Ola recently spoke about learning to accept her ‘mum bod’ after bravely sharing her bikini clad snap, admitting she’s ‘always struggled with my weight’ (pictured right in 2011)

Ola previously shared that her bikini snap with James was a ‘turning point’ in regaining her body confidence, remarking that she doesn’t want to ‘accept my body like this.’

Explaining why she felt it was important to share the photo, she said: ‘When I first saw the picture (which a friend took at our house) I was absolutely horrified – and mortified.

‘You know what it’s like, if you’ve put on a bit of weight, you hide away in baggy clothes and avoid looking in full Iength mirrors! So this was a bit of a shock.

‘But I thought – you know what I’ve had a baby and no I don’t look like I did in my time on Strictly – but I’m not dancing for six hours a day. So I thought I should just be honest and share it because this is mum life right? Also I’m not alone – I’ve had a baby. What’s James’s excuse?’

Jokester: Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Ola revealed that husband James loves to 'take the mickey' out of her for her weight, but she takes it right back, pointing out that she's had a baby and asking 'what's James' excuse?' (pictured in 2019)

Despite being nervous about what the response would be, Ola reveals she has been inundated with positive and supportive messages. 

She said: ‘I was nervous that people would be really mean because I don’t look like the girl in the catsuit any more. But actually I’ve been overwhelmed with how supportive people have been. I’ve not had one nasty message at all.’

Ola – who along with James has been classed as ‘clinically obese’ – admitted in a candid Instagram video that she fears she may never get her dancer’s figure back.

Speaking in their joint column in Hello! magazine, Ola and James – who quit Strictly in 2015 – told how they difficult it is to lose the pounds amid raising Ella, before adding they are motivated to do so for the sake of the tot.

Ola went on to say that she felt like she was ‘hiding’ previously, but has been warmed by the overwhelming support she received from her picture as she told how people could relate as it’s ‘hard’ to lose the weight.

She explained: ‘Especially with Instagram, you do see perfect bodies all the time, perfect lives, and perfect outfits. But there’s a lot of people who don’t look like that, who don’t look perfect.

‘It makes you feel like you’ve failed in life when you let yourself go a bit, especially when you were a professional dancer for a living. It’s hard, really hard. I don’t have the time to exercise.’

Ola told how she finds it ‘difficult’ to exercise as she spends her days looking after her daughter, and even if she does get to the gym, she’s thinking about her girl and yearns to spend time with her.

James also credited their weight gain to their unhealthy eating habits, noting that he and Ola would often scoff crisps and chocolates while watching TV.

He went on to say that the couple checked their weight online and discovered they were clinically classed as ‘obese’ for their height, noting that it was ‘not great’ as it put pressure on their organs.

He said of the weight gain: ‘I feel I move differently. I don’t feel as agile. I’m an older dad and I want to be agile for my daughter. We are at the stage where we both look at each other and think, ‘Who are you?’ I sometimes Google ourselves and ‘Look what we used to look like.’

The pair went on to say that they are determined to be a ‘good example’ to their daughter, with Ola admitting that her recent post was ‘my turning point’ and that ‘something needs to be done’.

She explained: ‘I don’t want to just accept my body like this. I don’t want to be overweight and fat. I want to live as long as I possibly can for Ella. I want to show her that I’m healthy and I don’t feel like we’re doing that right now.’
