Since their debut on Strictly, Neil and Alex have stayed in touch and remain close friends.

In recent interview with, he said they still exchange messages particularly about the latest football news.

“I send her little messages.”

Alex became the centre of racial abuse when she was rumoured to be taking over from Sue Barker on A Question of Sport last year.

Long-serving host Sue said the BBC wanted to take the show in a “new direction” without her and team captains Phil Tufnell and Matt Dawson.

The football pundit was wrongly announced as the new anchor of the show by Gary Lineker on Twitter, however a new line-up is yet to be released.

Addressing the abuse his former dance partner received, he said: “It’s a life thing that when someone is doing well, there’s always going to be people there knocking them down.

“She’s so positive she just takes it on the chin and gets on with what she’s doing.

“To be fair, she is so good at what she does.

“There’s some good [female] pundits coming through but I said to her she’s one of the first main ones and she’s got so much experience in football, she’s not just asking the questions she really knows about it.

“I love football but I learnt so much just from being around her.”
