They were highly praised by fans following their Paso Doble in Blackpool.

Alex opted to go makeup free as she left headed into the It Takes Two studios in London with Neil for another day of filming.

The former England star carried an array of bags and finished her off-duty look with a blue coat covered with floral embroidery.

Alex added another colourful twist to her outfit with pale blue chunky trainers, while Neil also wrapped up in a black trench coat and a brown scarf.

Alex and Neil have been hard at work in the training ahead of this weekend's dance, which will be the notoriously difficult Argentine Tango.

The pair earned plenty of praise following their performance at Blackpool last week, which was a Paso Doble to the Beyonce hit Run The World (Girls).

Alex and Neil earned a respectable 34 points out of 40 for their dance, and earned plenty of compliments from the judging panel.

Craig Revel-Horwood said: 'Well when you first walked out and I took one look at you I thought the hair was going to be the star of the performance, but actually you worked better than the hair. 

'It was theatrical, it had a modern take, I thought it was really really great.'

Motsi Mabuse added: 'I'm so so proud of you I'm so proud of that dance what I really loved is that you let go you just came through and attacked the dance, a few things happened but you were on it and I loved it.'

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7pm on BBC One.
