Let's Dance 2012: Alex Jones excited to be working with Steve Jones again

Steve Jones and Alex Jones (Let's Dance)

Alex Jones has said she can't wait to team up with ex-boyfriend and former X Factor USA host Steve Jones on Let's Dance again.

The Welsh telly presenter will be back to front the dance-based charity talent show, which sees celebrities try to impress with classic dance routines.

This year's series will see the likes of TOWIE's Amy Childs and Harry Derbridge, Ulrika Jonson and X Factor's Olly Murs.

Alex told the Sunday Mirror: “I can really empathise with them now. I know what they’re going through and my heart goes out to them.”

And despite Steve being her ex, Alex insisted she couldn't wait to work with him again!

She added: “It’s literally the only time we see each other now, as we’re both so busy and he’s been working on the US X Factor, so it will be good to catch up.

“And I’m looking forward to having something to do on Saturday nights again – you can’t beat the buzz of live TV.”

Let's Dance 2012 will air on BBC One later this month.
