Neil Jones: ‘Need to see’ Strictly pro 2019 gives update on performing with Alex Scott

Neil Jones, 37, has been absent from Strictly Come Dancing for the past two weeks due to suffering an injury. The professional has been replaced by fellow dancer, Kevin Clifton, to perform with Neil’s celebrity partner, Alex Scott.

Many fans are still wondering whether Neil will be fit enough to return to the dance floor on the BBC One competition this weekend.

The dancer, who announced his separation from wife and Strictly dancer Katya Jones in August, said he still has to wait and see.

Neil made the revelation after he spoke about teaching Alex their next routine.

He tweeted yesterday: “Most people don’t like Monday’s but I do, that’s because I get to teach @AlexScott a NEW DANCE!!!! #teamred #Strictly.”
