Strictly Come Dancing hopefuls Alex Scott and professional dancer Neil Jones are getting on like a house on fire as they reveal their week one dance is the Quickstep.

No pressure at all, then.

The pair appear to have gelled well ahead of the 2019 season with Neil teaching Alex his tricks and tips for keeping in rhythm – step hop beans on toast, ha ah ha.

But Alex is worrying big time, as she admits that the steps dont seem to want to come out as the music starts which isnt great for a dance performance.

The 2019 season is Neils first as a professional dancer with a partner, having previously only been on the show in the group dances.

He is known to Strictly fans though as he was married to dancer Katya Jones; the pair came under scrutiny in 2018 when Katya cheated on Neil with her celebrity partner Seann Walsh.

The pair apologised publicly and Katya and Neil revealed they were giving their marriage another shot, but earlier in 2019 they confirmed they had split.

Katya has been paired with Mike Bushell for this years show; in the launch show which aired on Saturday 7 September, the annual Strictly pairing ritual took place with the customary glitz and glam – along with a performance from Kylie Minogue.

While many were figuring out who is viable for a Strictly curse future, its also when we discovered the professionals who havent been paired up with a celebrity this year – with this years leftovers including Gorka Marquez, Graziano Di Prima, and Nancy Xu.
