Last hurrah: Ola Jordan opened up about her decade on Strictly Come Dancing during an appearance on spin-off show, It Takes Two, on Tuesday night
Ola, who was axed in week one this year, has partnered the likes of Robbie Savage and Steve Backshall over the years, and helped reporter Chris Hollins waltz his way to victory in 2009.
She insists she could never choose a favourite, saying, 'I couldn't pick. Obviously, they were all different - in dancing and personalities; in ability - but they were all great. I'm friends with most of them.'
Ola also said even after all the time she has been with the show, she still gets nervous ahead of performances.
'You're nervous for your partners as well, but you try not to show it too much, because they get more nervous than you,' she added.

Love and support: Ola also retweeted dozens of messages of support from her followers
Musing over what she would miss the most, she revealed it would be live shows and being part of a massive production, as well as 'the people I work with. All of them'.
Shortly after her interview, the Polish beauty took to Twitter to thank her fans for their love and support over the years.
She enthused: 'Thank you Tweeps for all your sweet comments I was so nervous in my interview I forgot to say the one thing I really wanted to........
'I wanted to thank ALL of you for your continuous support over my 10 years on the show and to say I love you all from the bottom of my heart.'
Still friends: Ola revealed she was still on good terms with all her former dance partners and couldn't possibly pick a favourite
Ola also went on a re-tweeting spree, sharing kind-hearted messages from her followers about how much they'll miss her on the show every week.
Explaining why she was leaving, she said in an interview earlier in the year that it was something she had been thinking about for a long time.
She told The Sun: 'It's a huge thing as Strictly has been such a massive part of my life for so long and I've made so many great friends, but it's time to go.'
The blonde beauty also wrote on Twitter: 'Hi tweeps.... So, yes it's true. I will be leaving Strictly at the end of this series.'

Ola was previously alleged to have quit Strictly because of her loyalty to husband James Jordan.
A former professional for the show, James 37 was supposedly sacked in 2014 - though he maintains that he walked out - and it has seemingly caused a continued rift between Ola and the Strictly producers.
An insider told The Sun: 'This has been on the cards a while. She's very loyal to James so when he was forced out it left a sour taste.'
The professional dancer was criticised for the racy nature of her 2016 calendar, which she was reportedly driven to by poor pay at the BBC, the newspaper's source claimed.
Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two is on weeknights at 6.30pm on BBC 2.
