James Jordan showed off his ‘dad bod’ weight gain on Instagram yesterday (Tuesday July 26) as he danced with his toddler Ella.

Former Strictly Come Dancing pro James, 44, stripped to his underwear for the daddy-daughter boogie.

Just a day earlier, he and wife Ola Jordan opened up about their weight gain on Loose Women.

He noted he has gained three stone in weight since he no longer needs to train for 10 hours a day.

But James implored onlookers watching him prance around in his maroon pants “not to judge” him.

He captioned the upload: “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.

“Don’t judge me – I’ve not needed to wear tight Lycra for a while (thank God!).”

How fans reacted

Many of James’ dedicated followers indicated they couldn’t care less about his appearance or condition.

And several more highlighted how they felt having a ‘dad bod’ is only to be expected for the father or a young child.
