Alex Jones, 44, has taken to Instagram to reveal that she won’t be hosting The One Show as usual from tomorrow until the following week. The BBC star, who is expecting her third baby with husband Charlie Thomson, shared the news in view of her 300,000 followers this evening after fronting the programme alongside Ronan Keating.

Alex revealed that she would be taking some time off for a week in order to spend more time with her family.

The Welsh presenter, who is already mum to two boys – Teddy, four, and two-year-old Kit, shared she wanted to be around for her brood as much as possible at the moment, as she’s worried she’ll soon be “too massive to move”. 

The star made the announcement alongside a mirror selfie behind-the-scenes of the BBC show.

Alex smiled for the camera ahead of her time off, as she showed off her sense of style in an oversized white shirt, which she paired with skinny jeans and summer-ready sandals.

She wrote in the caption: “That’s me done on @bbctheoneshow for a week.

“I’m going to spend some time with the boys before I get too massive to move.

“This shirt is a handy one for pregnancy.”

Telling her fans where they can get their hands on her outfit, Alex added: “It’s @nextofficial.”


The BBC host announced she was expecting her third baby, a girl, back in March.

The TV star recently said she and her husband were so overjoyed to be expecting again.

She told Closer: “It’s a huge gift. I suppose deep down I would never have said it because we were so lucky to have two lovely boys, but having a girl was always something that was there.

“I thought our time had passed and it wasn’t going to happen,” Alex shared.

“We both said how amazing three boys would be.

“Then when we opened the email which told us what sex the baby was, his little face was a picture,” Alex said.

The presenter added: “We both secretly thought it would be amazing if it was a girl. 

“It’ll be really interesting to see the different dynamics.”

Alex recently revealed her pregnancy hormones had gotten the better of her when she watched Pieces of a Woman, which stars Vanessa Kirby.

In the critically acclaimed movie, Vanessa plays Martha Weiss, who experiences a heartbreaking home birth, which leaves her struggling with her emotional reaction while isolated from her partner and family by her grief.

She said in a video on social media last month: “While Charlie is out watching the England game, I’ve made myself a lovely Greek salad and I’m about to watch Pieces of a Woman. 

“I’ve heard it’s amazing and Vanessa Kirby is amazing, but at this point in pregnancy it could be a mistake.

She then wrote alongside the movie’s poster after watching it: “In pieces myself but what a film and what a performance by @vanessa_kirby.”
