More than being an actress and a model, Jorgie Porter has been vastly celebrated for being one of the sexiest women in the world. Even as she found fame in acting and modeling, Jorgie’s dream as a child was to become a professional ballet dancer. It is said that she abandoned this dream after a teacher unaffectionately told her that she was too big for the dancing craft. Granted that the discouraging words of the teacher dissuade Jorgie from pursuing a career in dancing, she found her way back to her first love after she became famous.
Way back in 2011, she got to participate in Born to Shine, an ITV dance show where she was taught the art of street dancing. Although she didn’t make it to the final stage of the show, the next year brought her an opportunity to take part in the British television show Dancing on Ice, where she partnered with Matt Evers. Luck was friendlier this time as she reached the final and finished second.
