Strictly star Jason Bell has two very special women who cheer him on in the competition – his adorable baby girl, Anaíya, and his ex-partner, Girls Aloud legend Nadine Cole
Former American footballer Jason and his professional partner Luba Mushtuk were congratulated by the judges on their opening performance last week
The couple got 18 points for their American Smooth, with Shirley saying Jason gave « 100% » and praising his footwork
Before heading to the dance floor, Jason said: « It is strictly the epitome of British television and this year more than ever I am so proud and honored to participate It was strictly the first show I watched when I moved to UK and I’m a huge fan
« My six year old daughter has never had the chance to see me running on the field in an NFL game, but she is very excited that I am going on the dance floor J ‘hope I can make her proud «
Jason left the BBC Strictly studios with Nadine and Anaíya and as they hunted eagle-eyed fans spotted the couple, who broke up after 11 years together, holding hands
Nadine was taken holding Jason’s hand as the couple left the Borehamwood studio and the couple looked comfortable as they sat in the back of their chauffeured car as they drove home at their Elstree studios
The 35-year-old singer looked directly at the cameras and made no attempt to hide their display of affection
And Jason himself has fueled rumors that the former couple may get back together
Responding to fans who wanted to put them back together, he told Heat magazine: « A lot of people want a lot of things, so you never know!
« I love who she is as a person – always have and always will love her The thing with Nadine is if you look at her and see how much she cares about her daughter and people she loves, it’s contagious »
Nadine had previously described Jason as her « husband » She added: « I love to cook and hang out with my husband Jason and our daughter Anaiya We are a very close family »
But after selling her Los Angeles Irish bar, Nadine’s Irish Mist, and returning to Northern Ireland because she was homesick, things had changed between the couple.
Jason had remained in the United States to focus on his nascent career as an expert and broadcaster
A source close to the former couple told The Sun: « Although Nadine and Jason were never married, they lived as a close family unit and remain good friends as they co-parent their young daughter.
Nadine herself admitted earlier this year that the reason for their split was that after 11 years together their relationship had changed
She said, « I think it came naturally, to be honest It can happen to a situation where you’re almost (just) really, really really good friends, which can change the dynamics of a relationship
« Jason and I are very, very close this way We are more friends than romantic He was in our house for Christmas We always go out Anaiya, we have dinner She is always the number one priority »
