Steve: Alex and I are just friends

Steve Jones said he and Alex Jones would not be getting back together

Steve Jones has ruled out any rekindling of romance with his one-time girlfriend Alex Jones when they appear on screen together this month.

The pair are joining forces to host Let's Dance For Comic Relief on BBC One, and the former T4 presenter said he's looking forward to working with his old flame.

"We're strictly friends. We're not going back there. It didn't work the first time and we both agreed you should never go back," he revealed.

"I'd say my jokes and gags on the show will be met with a roll of the eyes from Alex because she's been coping with it for over 10 years now, my sense of humour, so it's going to be fun."

Steve, who is currently single, revealed his ex was "the first person that came to mind" when producers began searching for a replacement for his previous Let's Dance co-host Claudia Winkleman.

"It's a good opportunity for her because The One Show is a great show and I enjoy it, I really do but it's quite strict and I know Alex is a very, very funny girl and very sharp and I think Let's Dance is a great platform," he added.

Steve revealed he'll have his eye on another lady when the show starts on February 19 - contestant and former GMTV presenter Penny Smith.

"I had a crush on her of Biblical proportions. When I was a kid I used to get up early and go downstairs and sit in front of GMTV and just watch her," he said.

"She's still hot as well, she's amazing. She was at Let's Dance last year, she came along for the evening and she's still looking good."
