The announcement was made after celebrities were paired with their professional dance partners.

Former England footballer Alex Scott – the favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing – has become professional dancer Neil Jones’s first celebrity partner.

Reigning champion Kevin Clifton was paired with Anneka Rice in the opening show of Strictly’s 17th series.

New judge Motsi Mabuse said she felt “a part of the family” on her debut.

The pairing of Scott and Jones comes after a torrid year for the professional dancer.

His personal life hit the headlines after he separated from his wife and fellow Strictly dancer Katya Jones after she was photographed kissing her celebrity partner – comedian Seann Walsh.

Anneka Rice cast doubt on whether her partner would be able to win for a second year running. She said: “I haven’t got a rhythm gene, I can’t even clap in time.”

Fan favourite Anton Du Beke has been paired with EastEnders star Emma Barton, another celebrity who is tipped to make it to the grand final.

Du Beke has been on the show since its first series but has never won, having often been paired with the show’s less skilful dancers, such as Ann Widdecombe.
