The One Show and Let's Dance presenter host Alex Jones has revealed she is 'scared' to take part in this year's series of Strictly Come Dancing. The Welsh telly host is the first celebrity to be linked to the show this year, with inside sources suggesting the BBC hope the programme will propel Alex into the big-time.
A source said: “Alex has been a dream come true for The One Show. She held the whole thing together and everyone’s grateful.
"Bosses think it’s her time to shine.”
Alex herself however wasn't so sure about the show, saying: "The standard is up here and I’d be quite scared to do Strictly Come Dancing. I’m okay at ballet but then they don’t do much ballet do they?"
In actual fact Alex seemed to be a bit more eager to take part in rival ITV reality show Dancing On Ice! "I’m not bad at ice skating. Well, I can go round once without falling!" she told This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
