Alex Jones has revealed she’s fortunate not to fancy her Strictly Come Dancing partner James Jordan.

The pair – branded Team Jalex by fans – have to share some intimate moments during their steamy routines, but The One Show host says there is absolutely no attraction between them.

The presenter, who is dating an insurance broker called Charlie, told the Daily Telegraph: “We’ve been quite lucky in that – that clearly isn’t there!”

James, who is married to fellow Strictly professional Ola, joked: “I’m sure there are times when you look at me and go, ‘Phwoar’, but you control yourself.”

Alex has been criticised by judge Craig Revel Horwood for not being sexy enough.

But she said: “It’s a funny thing, isn’t it? I mean, what is sexy? The thing is, I don’t walk around writhing in the street – it would look weird.

“It’s hard, isn’t it, when someone says: ‘Do you feel sexy?’ Well, no, not particularly, not this moment and not on live television really, particularly.”

And Alex, who has had to squeeze in training around her hectic work schedule, said she would be devastated to leave the BBC show.

“I’d be gutted. It would be horrible. I don’t know what I would do for six hours in the morning.”
