Strictly Come Dancing is known for his infamous "curse," which sees several couples split up as celebrities approach their dance partner. Now in the rumor line of fire are Alex Scott and Neil Jones, thanks to their incredible chemistry as they dance, causing a body language expert to describe the pair as "Hollywood rom-com". This week they took things from the studio and spent some time at home in a family environment. The pair spent some time on the couch with Alex's young niece watching the Disney movie Moanna in an attempt to get some inspiration for the dance.
As part of the theme of this week's Hollywood movie, the couple chose to dance to the point where I'm going to pass Auli I Cravalho, from the Moana movie.
The couple would do a fast-paced rumba. There was pressure for them as the first couple to perform a rumba this season, with "Rumba Queen" Shirley Ballas watching from behind the jury panel.
Before performance host Tess Daly asked Shirley what she was looking for in the performance.
Shirley said, “Of course, I'm looking for some technicalities, you know I love my seven rumba rides and I love the great atmosphere and I love to see the sensuality of it, so I'm really looking forward to seeing the first rumba in the series. "
Fortunately, the soccer player and his professional partner took the role very seriously and were eager to create the atmosphere needed for the perfect routine.
Filming showed the pair approaching in the studio, with Neil gently guiding his feet into position.
"Who would think at 34 I'm learning to walk again," joked Alex.
Judi James, a body language expert, pointed out the change, stating: "Neil is now playing the role of Alex's sexual and romantic hero on the dance floor and rehearsals, pronouncing the name of his character Moana with what sounded like a moan. desire and making tactile corrections on Alex's feet and legs in the style of a Hollywood novel. "
After the moment of tenderness, Alex made a suggestion on how they could completely define their routine.
"I had a great idea because my niece is a big fan of Moanna, so I say let's watch with her," she suggested.
His 37-year-old partner replied, "Should I bring the popcorn?"
Strictly the cameras followed them home, where they were greeted by Alex's young niece, who was on hand to offer some tips on how to channel Moanna.
“We had to come here today for my niece to explain and help me channel my inner moan. Why is she so cool, seeing it through her eyes, ”Alex explained.
The three sat together on the couch while watching the cartoon, which follows the story of a young Polynesian.
Neil was seen holding a bowl of popcorn for Alex's niece, who was sitting among them.
Speaking about his niece, he said, "She has given us many wise words for such a young girl."
Commenting on why she liked Moanna so much, Alex said, "She's a very strong person and only focuses on what she wants to do and not on what others tell her to do."
The duo followed this advice in their performance, approaching the dance floor with a barefoot performance.
From his performance, Judi James said: "There is something about Alex's dancing posture and torso movement that still needs to melt.
"Their dance began with one of the most passionate full-length hugs and gazes in the night's eyes, but as the dance went on, Alex's intrinsic inhibitions began to appear in quite rigid trunk positions.
"She gave Neil a full koala hug when the dance ended and her examination of him and his mirrored movements suggest a closer empathy, but Alex still needs to cast some last vestiges of distrust on the dance floor to emerge as the potential winner she has. must be. . "
