She revealed that the couple is looking to undergo IVF treatment to help them to get the baby they desperately want after trying for two years.

Ola also spoke about how it became ''upsetting'' to talk about their baby plans as they assumed it would happen straight away.

Ola said, "I would love to be a mum with all my heart and I just thought it would happen naturally," says Ola, 36. "James is also desperate to have babies and I just wish it could have happened by now. That’s the one gift I would love to give him. I guess I just thought, like most women, that I could choose when the time was right for me; that I could have my career and then have a baby when it felt right. But for us it just hasn’t happened like that."

James and Ola both quit Strictly; James in 2013 and Ola in 2015.

James, who is taking part in Dancing On Ice, said that it was a ''sting'' to realise they couldn't have a baby straight away.

He said, ''The irony is that for 17 years during our career we tried not to have children because dancing is not a career that easily fits in with family life.''

The pair has decided to open up about their fertility issues as they get asked a lot about when they're starting a family.

Ola said, ''I felt I had to speak now because in every interview we get asked when we are going to have a baby and it gets harder to keep trying to avoid the question and brush it off. It’s got to the point where it’s become upsetting, so we want to tell our story so it’s in the open."

We hope that their dreams of having a family come true for them.
