Amy Jadesimi sister Viscountess Emma Weymouth Strictly Come Dancing

Viscountess Emma Weymouth, half-sister of the CEO of Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics Base (LADOL), Amy Jadesimi, has been named one of the contestants in Strictly Come Dancing, a British television dance contest.

The red carpet launch of this year’s edition was held at BBC TV Centre in London on Monday, August 26.


Joining Emma on the show are 14 other celebrities including retired England goalkeeper, David James; EastEnders star, Emma Barton, and comedian, Chris Ramsey.

The start date for the main show is Saturday, September 21, following a launch episode, which aired on Saturday, September 7.


Emma was born on March 19, 1986 to billionaire businessman, Oladipo Jadesimi, from a relationship he had with English socialite, Suzanna McQuiston, while he was working as an accountant in London.

Although they are of the same father, Emma and her 43-year-old half-sister live completely different lives.

While Amy, a product of Chief Jadesimi’s marriage to former Miss Alero Okotie-Eboh, runs a major oil hub founded by her father, Emma is a fashion model and chef.


Emma became a Viscountess following her marriage in 2013 to Ceawlin Thynn, Viscount Weymouth.

The marriage saw her become the chatelaine of the Longleat Estate in Wiltshire.

A report in say the Jadesimi sisters don’t keep in touch and Amy was absent at Emma’s wedding.

A mother of two boys, Emma had her second son through surrogacy because of a health condition.


Speaking on her latest adventure, the 33-year-old said: “I absolutely love watching Strictly every weekend and I can’t believe that I’m getting the chance to be on this series.

“I know it will be such an amazing experience from start to finish. I can’t wait for the dancing and the fabulous outfits!”

Aside from cooking and modelling, Emma has also worked as a contributing editor for the Huffington Post and British Vogue.
