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.

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.
