Summary spurious space (?), ordinals in different languages

Description

Hello Nicola,

In the following MWE the first ordinal is preceded with spaces, the second gives the warning

    No support for \ordinal for language 'british' on input line 7.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[british]{babel}
\usepackage{fmtcount}
\begin{document}

!\ordinalnum{28}!
!\ordinalnum{28}!

\end{document}
This has more visual effect if different languages are loaded. Now the second ordinal is displayed in the German format even before or without \selectlanguage{ngerman}:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[ngerman,british]{babel}
\usepackage{fmtcount}
\begin{document}

!\ordinalnum{28}!
!\ordinalnum{28}!

\selectlanguage{ngerman}
!\ordinalnum{28}!

\selectlanguage{british}
!\ordinalnum{28}!

\end{document}
Best, Clemens
