Strictly Come Dancing fans have begged Neil Jones to return to the series after he shared a snap of himself with Kevin Clifton and Alex Scott during a night out on Thursday. He captioned the post: "Team Red all the way. I want to thank @keviclifton for being not just the professional we all know but for being a great friend and for always going that extra mile. @alexscott2 you have been an inspiration this week, you have supported me every step of the way and I could never have wished for a better partner in my life right now."

Fans are hoping that Neil will be back on the show

Another person added: "No matter if I can dance or not this Saturday night I know you will go out there and dance a fantastic jive with a smile on your face and I can’t wait for everyone to see what you can do." Fans were quick to send Neil their best wishes, with one writing: "Fingers toes and eyes crossed for the all clear for you, need you back out there with Alex, Kevin has done great though." Another added: "This is so sweet! Hope you'll be able to dance on Saturday."

Speaking about how he obtained the injury on It Takes Two, Neil previously explained: "It was during [a] movement, normally the gun was coming out and I thought the gun has hit me on the back of my leg and I looked and it was just the muscle, it just went. I've ripped muscles before but it wasn't painful. It was just a weird feeling that's all it takes." Speaking about Kevin stepping in, he added: "I love Kevin but I also would really like to continue dancing with Alex."
