“Of course I was there to teach you how to dance but you taught me so much more and the biggest lesson I learnt was to always be myself and never change,” he continued.

“You have warmed the hearts and inspired so many people around the country on a daily basis because you always worked hard and I never heard you complain plus you did all of this with a smile on your face.

“I will walk away from all of this with my head held high knowing that we did everything we could do and without a single regret and loving every moment. I really want to thank everyone that has supported us both with your messages, posts, votes and just spreading the positivity of #teamred” Neil added.

The dancer joked that there’s so much he could say about Alex that he could write a book, “I’m just sad I’m not teaching you a new dance in the morning unless we could just dance together for fun and giggles.
