Alex Jones takes break from The One Show after opening up on tricky and challenging patch

Alex Jones has revealed that she'll be taking a break from hosting The One Show for around a month.

The 45 year old TV presenter took to Instagram on 27 July to share a snap of her with co-host Jermaine Jenas on the iconic green couch as they bid farewell to their hosting duties until the end of August.

"And that is a wrap till the end of August," Alex wrote as she and Jermaine, 39, posed for a selfie.

The pair also announced the news on Wednesday's edition of The One Show, as they told how viewers won't be getting their week-daily fix of the show as it makes way for coverage of the Commonwealth Games, which begins on Thursday 28 July.

Alex explained to viewers that she and Jermaine are taking a "summer break" until 22 August and finished off by adding: "Stay safe and have a lovely summer."

Announcing the break on social media, the official page for The One Show shared a message for viewers, writing: "That's all we've got time for tonight! Thank you for watching! The #TheOneShow will be back on August 22nd after a sensational summer of sport!

"We hope you all have a safe and enjoyable summer!"

The news comes after Alex recently opened up about how things have been "tricky" for her over recent weeks, and thanked her fans for supporting her.

Sharing a photo of a painting on Instagram, the mum-of-three opened up, writing: "Things have been a bit tricky for us recently and in all honesty, I haven’t had time to be on here between working and the children but I randomly logged on and saw all your lovely messages gently asking if we were all ok.

"I was touched by your kindness and so I just wanted to check in and say thank you, and that even though life has been a bit challenging, we are ok and still managing to enjoy the beginning of the holidays and there’s still plenty to smile about! (I’ll pop some stuff on my stories)".

Alex shares three children, Teddy, five, Kit, three, and baby daughter Annie with her husband Charlie Thomson.

She previously opened up to OK! about the arrival of her third child and how she juggles her home life and busy work schedule.

Speaking at the TRIC Awards, she gushed over her baby daughter, saying: “Annie was a huge surprise,” reveals Alex. “But she was very much wanted. I just love having the three of them. I always wanted a little gang. And Annie is a dream. She’s been the easiest baby."

“It’s the thing that lots of us are trying to balance. It’s trying to be as present as a parent and then trying to switch halfway through the day to try and do something entirely different. It’s hard to keep on top of everything because like most mums you want to be there for all the little moments, but when you’re a working mum that’s really difficult," Alex said.
