Alex Scott: 'I'm nervous’ Strictly star reveals worries about Kevin replacing Neil Jones

Kevin was then called upon at the last minute to dance the Charleston with Alex during Halloween Week.

Earlier this week, Neil tweeted to his 73,500 followers: “Yes I can’t wait for this week myself @AlexScott will be dancing American Smooth to ‘Ain’t no mountain high enough’.”

Katya Jones’ ex, who has been paired up with a celebrity on the BBC One show for the first time this year, added: “I just need to hurry up and recover.”

A recent episode of Strictly spin-off It Takes Two showed a video of Neil and Alex rehearsing their American Smooth.

Host, Zoe Ball, pointed out Neil was on a crutch and instead of dancing with the former footballer, he was giving her instructions on what to do.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One at 7pm on Saturday.
