Jason Bell has praised his “wonderful” ex Nadine Coyle for helping him practice dancing ahead of his Strictly Come Dancing stint.
The former couple were together for over a decade, where they were engaged twice and gave birth to a daughter named Anaiya back in 2013, before calling it quits last year.
Jason joined the cast for the upcoming series of the popular dance show, and revealed that his Girls Aloud ex was passing on her dance knowledge to him.
Speaking to HELLO! Magazine, the former NFL star said: “Nadine has always given me great advice in my life and now she’s giving me tips on how to prepare for a routine. She’s an expert.”
“Let’s just say there’s a lot of dancing in the kitchen going on,” he added.
Speaking about his close relationship with Nadine, Jason explained: “We spend a lot of time together.
“I love who Nadine is, she is a wonderful person and an unbelievable mother. Anaíya is so lucky.”
Jason was paired up with professional dancer Luba Mushtuk on Saturday night’s prelaunch show, with the series returning to BBC One on October 24.
