Baker finished runner-up on last year's Strictly
when he danced with Aliona Vilani.
Jones told It Takes Two
: "Matt was excellant and he set the bar so high. He didn't want to say too much or he may step on James's feet, but he's really encouraging and he's like a fifth judge.
"Judges on Saturday night and Matt on Monday morning!"
Jones also claimed that this week's jive routine may be the first that helps her shed pounds on the show.
"It's like doing a marathon," the TV presenter said. "People have said, 'Oh, have you lost weight doing Strictly
?' This week might be the breakthrough."> Strictly Craig Revel Horwood defends 'sexless' Alex Jones remark> More Strictly Come Dancing news
