Two-time Olympic champion Nicola announced her retirement from boxing in 2019, leaving with an undefeated record and the title of WBO flyweight world champion under her belt.  

And her girlfriend of two-years Ella told how she couldn’t be more prouder of her love, who is currently battling it out on Strictly. 

She said: ‘Ok, so you retired one year ago today. Look how much you have done, look how much you have accomplished. 

‘You have done so much and you are still in the game. I love you and so proud of you and I will be watching you tonight.’

Meanwhile, Ella recently revealed her desire to teach sex education in schools.

The blonde beauty, who came out as bisexual when she was in her mid-teens, told how there needed to be more support for LGBT students in classrooms.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: ‘I would love to work more with teenagers because I think they can struggle to understand themselves and what they are going through.

‘I would also like work in sex education, because I don’t think that is always the best at schools here.’

She went on to say that the reaction to her coming out was ‘oversexualised’ due to the mindsets of teenage boys and how they viewed ‘feminine lesbians’. 

She continued: ‘It would be good if there was better support and education in schools to get children through what can be a difficult time.’ 

Ella added that she now identifies as ‘pansexual’, adding that to her, ‘sexuality is fluid’ and she prefers not to use labels. 

Well done: Ok, so you retired one year ago today. Look how much you have done, look how much you have accomplished'

She went on to say that it wasn’t until meeting Nicola two years ago that she finally felt ‘comfortable’ with her own sexuality.   

Nicola and Ella have been together for two years and bought a house together in Leeds after dating for just one-year, after meeting on a night out.

Ella explained that she had recently finished studying at university in the city and was completely unaware of who Nicola was at the time.

She recalled how she had drunkenly asked a pal who the pro boxer was when other people started to take pictures.

After telling her friend that she didn’t at first think Nicola was attractive, the pair started to talk and soon hit it off as they started to date.
