Strictly Come Dancing made history with its 2019 line-up by finally giving Neil Jones a celebrity dance partner.

The 37-year-old professional dancer joined the show back in 2016 but has never been paired up on the show, only seen in group dance numbers or on spin-off show It Takes Two.

In the Strictly 2019 launch show, Neil was partnered up with former English footballer Alex Scott, meaning hell actually have a shot at bagging the Glitterball trophy.

Safe to say, viewers were pretty buzzing for Neil.

Its been a tough year for Neil after he split from fellow pro dancer Katya Jones in August, after being together for 11 years.

In a joint statement on Instagram, the pair said: As our fans and loyal supporters you are really important to us and so we wanted to let you know some news.

After 11 years, we have made the mutual decision to separate.
