Strictly’s Alex Scott drops Neil Jones on his head after 13 hours of gruelling rehearsals – The Sun

STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Alex Scott dropped Neil Jones on his head following 13 hours of gruelling rehearsals.

The 35-year-old football pundit was trying to do a lift with the pro dancer when she lost her gripping and he fell to the mat.

Sharing the video with friends, she insisted: “I didn’t drop him I swear!”

Fortunately Neil, 37, seemed OK and quickly got up while the pair both dissolved into hysterical laughter.

Alex shared another video of herself tripping over as she tried to master dance moves.

She told her fans: “When it gets to 10pm and my body gives up on me.”


The sports star and Neil revealed that they had spent a whopping 13 hours in the dance studio yesterday  and it was starting to take its toll on them.

Alex shared: “13 hours in rehearsals today and had no time to post. Absolutely shattered, my body hurts, this Charleston routine is full on but it is fun and I love it.

“At it again tomorrow to make sure we are doing everything we can to make it our best week yet. No pain, no gain.”


It’s not the first time Alex has accidentally injured Neil – last week she bashed him in the face while they rehearsed their tango.

Their hardcore training paid off though as their Tango to Fleetwood Mac's Go Your Own Way earned them 23 points from the judges.

Last week Neil and Alex were pictured arriving back at her London home after a busy day rehearsing followed by a glamorous night out in the city.

The pair have proved a real hit with viewers on the show and have continued to improve week after week.

Their romantic performance to David Guetta's What I Did For Love sent temperatures soaring, with Shirley Ballas telling them: “What I did like about the dance was the chemistry.”

Neil is currently single following his split from fellow pro Katya Jones after 11 years together.
