Neil Jones confirms he will make a comeback to Strictly tonight

Neil Jones has confirmed that he will return to the show tonight.

The professional dancer will link back up with his partner, Alex Scott, after he had to take time off due to an injury.

During an appearance on It Takes Two, Strictly Come Dancing's spin-off show, Neil revealed that he was given the OK by the show's physio to return to dancing.

He missed two live shows during this series after he suffered from a calf injury. His colleague, Kevin Clifton, stepped in for him during his time off.

On the show, Alex explained: "I now know who I'm dancing with. Are you ready? Shall we bring him in? It is … I am dancing with, my normal partner Neil Jones! He is back, yes.

Meanwhile, Neil said: "It's great to be back. She's been doing so well every week, and Kevin I have to say thank you, because Kevin has been there all the way and he's been great this week. We couldn't had done it without him."

The pair will perform the jive this week and we can't wait to see it.
