Strictly’s Alex Scott and Neil Jones finally address their ‘real connection’

There is absolutely no denying the chemistry between Strictly Come Dancing hopefuls Alex Scott and Neil Jones.

The couple's connection seems stronger and stronger every time they don their sequins and make their way to the dancefloor to battle it out for the Glitterball trophy.

And of course because the football star is single, and this is Strictly after all, everyone has been wondering if there could be more than a professional spark between them.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "Alex & Neil, their best dance yet and they share such a wonderful chemistry together", while another added: "Amazing Alex/Neil chemistry – the cutest couple this year."

The couple finally addressed the rumours during an interview, Alex said she knew she wanted to be partnered with Neil from day one.

Speaking to Hello!, she said: "I'm a huge fan of Strictly and have dreamt of being on it for years, so I've loved every minute. From the start, I told my friends I wanted to be with Neil.

"The first time we met, we really got on and when we sat down and talked we had a real connection."

Neil added: "In the beginning I was just over the moon to have a partner, but I lucked out with Alex. She's got her energy but she's also really calm and I'm the same.

"Training sessions are like working really hard and being at a spa at the same time. You always want somebody who you can push and who wants to listen and learn, and in that way she's the perfect student."

Alex also said that while she's single she doesn't "need to find someone" and isn't searching for love.

But a sneak peak at Alex's Instagram reveal a very different story. 

On Valentine's Day, along with selfies including the heart emoji, Alex wrote: "Oh February… when you walk into a card shop to get a birthday card but it's all about Valentine's Day on every shelf." 

But by June it seemed the soccer star was thinking about putting herself out there for dates. 

A series of pictures show her holding her phone in her hand with the caption "swipe left., swipe right". 

Was this a hint that she was using dating apps?
