Strictly Come Dancing’s Neil Jones and Alex Scott already look inseparable as the pair enjoyed an evening stroll after rehearsals.

They’re in it to win it.

Despite only being in the first week of rehearsals, the pair already look to be getting on like a house on fire, giggling away as they took selfies and filmed videos together.

Both rocking gym wear, the duo appeared to have had a successful day of strutting their stuff as they smiled away, even having a playful argument on Neil’s Instagram Stories as they filmed a Q and A.

‘Out of the two of you, who is most competitive?’ a fan asked, with Alex replying: ‘Me!’

‘No, it’s me,’ the pro dancer argued.

‘Because of that basketball game! I won, by the way,’ the football pundit pointed out, before Neil interrupted: ‘Hey, I won the first one’ and demanded a rematch.

Neil, who’s clearly thrilled to be paired with a celebrity partner for the first time this series, also revealed he’s most excited to teach the footballer the jive, explaining that it’s because of ‘all the kicks. I’ve heard you kick a bit.’

Can’t fault that logic.

Meanwhile, Alex, 34, went on to reveal that her pro partner had been rocking a skirt in rehearsals, before threatening to share the footage online.

In fact, she ended up following through and Neil’s alter-ego Lady Alex is something we definitely won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

It’s no surprise the pair looked in high spirits after their rehearsals, as Alex is tipped to get the first perfect 40 score from the judges.

Swapping the football pitch for the ballroom floor, she’s also one of the favourites to win.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead pointed out: ‘She looks to have everything needed to be a Strictly success and we are already fully expecting her to be right there at the end in the battle for the Glitterball Trophy.’

So no pressure then?
