James Jordan speaks out on daughter’s diagnosis after a week of ‘no sleep’

James Jordan has taken to social media to give an update on his daughter’s condition after she was rushed to hospital earlier this week.

Uploading a series of videos to Instagram stories, James, 45, told his 262,000 followers that three-year-old Ella was on the mend after she was diagnosed with pneumonia and tonsilitis.

In the first video, James said: “Hi guys, hope you’re all well, just a little bit of an update. Firstly, myself and Ola look like Oompa Loompas because we’ve had a spray tan Wednesday night thinking we were going to be working but obviously ended up in the hospital with Ella.”

Ola and Ella could be seen in the background as the former Strictly star, 41, jokingly added “At least we are spray tanned”, before James continued: “So we look good in hospital, but anyway, we found out later last night that Ella actually had, or has, got pneumonia which is what they are currently treating along with the tonsilitis. So it was a bit more concerning than we initially thought.”

He then added: “She is still on IV antibiotics but it seems to be working and hopefully we might be going home later this evening which will be really nice for Ella.”

In a second video, James went on to share: “Ella is feeling much better within herself. Her temperature has been controlled now for nearly 24 hours, which is amazing.

“It’s been a long, long five days of no sleep so I’m really looking forward to hopefully getting a really good night’s sleep tonight.”

The video then took a change of tone as James and Ola teased each other with the former saying “You can see she’s becoming…she’s going to be a nightmare isn’t she?” Referring to his daughter who could be seen playing with her toys.

He continued: “She’s going to have so much energy and mummy and daddy are going to be knackered, but oh no, tomorrow aren’t you flying away for a couple of days to see your mum and dad Ola? So it’s just going to be me that’s going to be knackered”

This led Ola to respond: “You know what, you went to bed last night, whilst I was here” which made James laugh as she continued: “awake” before James confirmed that he was sent home by the hospital as they only allow one parent to stay overnight at a time.

James then uploaded a third video showing Ella lying on her hospital bed and said: “I have to say, Ella has been a warriror, literally a warrior”.

Before Ella interrupted to say: “I’m not a warrior…I’m Ella Bella.”
