ALEX Scott is an ex-footballer who now works mostly in TV presenting, with her next gig potentially being a co-host on Question of Sport.
She even had a stint on Strictly Come Dancing that saw her leave the show in a dramatic way, with fans claiming it was a fix.
Is Alex Scott dating anyone?
The ex-footballer has revealed in an interview with HELLO! Magazine that she is single and very happy.
However, after watching Normal People in the summer of 2020, she accidentally said the show had made her feel "horny" and she further commented that lockdown had her wanting a relationship.
She was partnered with Neil Jones during Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 and whilst rumours of romance between the two began to surface, both denied the rumours and Neil had split from his wife and fellow Strictly pro Katya Jones this summer.
Neil said: "There's nothing on our minds but the show – we don't have time to think about anything else."
He continued: "I'm single but I haven't even thought about dating. Coming out of a long-term relationship I'm just focusing on Strictly."
There were many who began to assume that the two's relationship had ascended to another level, especially with many stars on the show falling foul of the 'Strictly curse'.
But the pair have set the record straight and have kept their relationship strictly professional.
What has Alex Scott said about her love life?
Alex seems to be happy and content with being single.
She explained: "I'm single but it's not like I need to find someone. I like things to happen organically and if someone comes into my life and we get on, then great. It's not like I need to go searching for it."
In an online interview with Michelle Visage in June 2020, she said: "After watching Normal People I've realised I've been single for a while now and I need to make more of an effort because I'm ready to have someone in my life."
