The pair left the competition on Sunday

After losing the dance-off against Chris and Karen in a split vote between the judges, with Shirley Ballas eventually having the casting vote and choosing to save Chris and Karen, Neil sweetly expressed his gratitude at having a celebrity partner for the first time, saying: "I’ve been so lucky because I got a partner.

Alex added: "I’ve been a fan of Strictly forever so to even be here and dance here every week, I’ve loved every moment and I have to thank everyone... I’ve literally lived out another dream I had – football and then this chapter. I have to thank my dance partner, he’s incredible. Thank you to everyone. I’m proud of the whole process, I’m proud of the struggle and I’m proud that people got to see me. Thank you for having me."
