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.
The insider told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "It's their way of showing Neil they support him and are grateful for the dignified way he handled the situation with Seann and Katya.
"Neil hopes this is the next step to being paired up with a celeb next year on the main series of the show."
Meanwhile, Katya previously insisted that in spite of her kiss with Seann, she and her husband remain "very happy" together.
She wrote on Twitter: "I'm so sorry about any offence or hurt I have caused with my actions.
"I wasn't thinking and it was a one off mistake after some drinks.
"I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship. (sic)"
