Neil Jones' comeback routine has been confirmed after he assured he'll be reuniting with Alex Scott during this weekend's Strictly Come Dancing.
The 37-year-old was forced to pull out of the last two live shows after suffering a brutal knee injury, and was replaced by Kevin Clifton , who ended up apologising to Neil's partner Alex after fluffing up their routine a week ago.
Thankfully, the natural order looks like it's being restored and Neil will be joining the former England footballer for a Jive to Let's Twist Again by Chubby Checker.
Neil confirmed yesterday he's back in the studio with Alex, with a very excitable post for a Monday.
'Most people don't like Monday's but I do that's because I get to teach @AlexScott a NEW DANCE!!!! #teamred #Strictly,' he enthused.
After bowing out of the contest in another controversial elimination on Sunday night , Strictly have let slip Emma Weymouth and Aljaž Škorjanec would have performed a Quickstep to Maroon 5's This Love, but we can only imagine what could have been.
As for everyone else…
Emma Barton and Anton Du Beke will be taking on their Couples' Choice number to The Pussycat Dolls hit Right Now; Michelle Visage and Giovanni Pernice will be bringing the steam (again) with an American Smooth to I Just Want To Make Love To You; Saffron Barker and AJ Pritchard are Waltzing to Your Song; Chris Ramsay and Karen Clifton are hoping to replicate their success last week with a Tango to Survivor by 2wei; Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden are taking on Ed Sheeran's Give Me Love for what will inevitably be a stunning Viennese Waltz, while Mike Bushell and Katya Jones will be trying to swerve backlash with a Paso Doble to Rodrigo y Gabriela's Tamacun.
And we're just a tad excited for Kelvin Fletcher to revive his hypnotic hips from week one with a Salsa to Denience Williams's camp as Christmas classic, Let's Hear It For The Boy.
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 6.45pm on BBC One.
