Ola Jordan stood out at the Ascot races in a bright custom made dress, complete with co-ordinating pompom fascinator

Each year the Royal Ascot races have us all focused on the most important part of the event. Nope, not the actual horse racing, but the huge array of different dresses. It's essentially a catwalk through a race course.

Strictly Come Dancing star Ola avoided the dreaded 'same dress' scenario by turning up in a couture outfit by designer Ben de Lisi, made exclusively for bookmaker Coral.

Shunning muted pastels, the dancer stood out in a mixture of red, blue and black. Even her bright blue accessories demanded attention, with a fun fascinator complete with giant pompom, and matching heels.

The dress will be auctioned off for charity, hopefully to a huge fan of Strictly who can then live the Come Dancing dream and twirl round a bit in their front room.

Back in December, Ola suffered a knee injury while training for The Jump. After taking a fall while practicing on indoor slopes, Ola snapped a ligament in her left knee and there were concerns she may not dance again.

However, after undergoing knee surgery earlier this year, Ola has revealed she will be returning to the ballroom. Opening up about her accident on ITV's Lorraine, Ola said doctors have reassured her she will be back dancing and could possibly return for the next series of Strictly.

"I will [dance]," she revealed. "It's just going to take time unfortunately. My knee has to tell me if it is ready to dance basically, but hopefully I can soon."
