JAYE JACOBS

Actor

Jaye is best known as Nurse Donna Jackson in "Holby City", which she has been a part of since 2004. Before becoming an actress, Jaye had a range of jobs, but also was an accomplished gymnast and trampolinist - a good basis for learning to dance!

Competing in series three of Strictly Come Dancing with professional dancer Andrew Cuerden, Jaye brought her bright, bubbly personality to the training room, but perhaps lacked the discipline Andrew had been hoping for. Her first dance in the series was the Waltz, which she struggled with not only the hold, but also the quiet performance required. Even so, she received a very respectable score of 25 points for her first dance, and moved onto her first latin dance, the Rumba. Another dance which didn't suit her personality, Jaye struggled throughout the week of training, heightened by not being able to trust Andrew to hold her in one of the steps of the choreography. Disappointing comments from the judges, and a lower score of 21 points, led to them finishing toward the bottom of the leaderboard, and the public votes were not enough to keep them in the competition. Jaye finished thirteenth out of fourteen couples.
