Caroline Flack is reportedly set to become Neil Jones" first-ever celebrity partner on "Strictly Come Dancing".

The "Love Island" host - who won the BBC show in 2014 - is poised to return to the dance floor for the programme's Christmas special, which will see her team up with Neil, the husband of fellow "Strictly" star Katya Jones.

A source explained: "Caroline jumped at the chance. She expected to be paired up with pro dancer Pasha Kovalev again, but "Strictly" bosses were inundated with requests for Neil to finally get a celebrity dance partner."

Neil, 35, has come under the spotlight in recent weeks after his wife was spotted kissing her celebrity partner Seann Walsh following a night out in London.

The decision to pair Neil with Caroline is how the BBC has chosen to show its support for the professional dancer, according to the source.
