Alex Jones to return to The One Show

Alex Jones will return to "The One Show" on Monday (24.04.17).

The 40-year-old presenter has confirmed she'll rejoin her co-star Matt Baker on the topical magazine show from the beginning of next week for just two days to start with following the birth of her son Teddy, whom she has with her husband Charlie Thomson, in January.

Speaking on the show on Friday (21.04.17), she said in a video clip: "Hello everybody! Yes, I'm coming back to the one show on Monday. Matt hopefully you'll after me because I'll be feeling a bit nervous. Excited to see everybody. The whole team, but it will be hard to leave Little ted as every parent I'm sure understands. So yeah I'll be back on Monday two days a week to begin with and we'll see how we go. BBC One, 7pm, I'll see you there."

The brunette beauty announced she and her spouse had become parents for the first time four months ago when she phoned into the studio to share the news live on television.

She said at the time: "We're absolutely delighted - we're completely in love with him."

Talking about the "straightforward" birth, she added: "It was all very straightforward, Charlie was with me, mum and dad were in the waiting room - because we didn't know whether it was a boy or a girl. So that was a lovely bit of news. The last four days have been heaven - we're in a bubble, the three of us, and it's just the best time."

Alex confirmed she was expecting her first child with her spouse - whom she married last year at Cardiff Castle in Wales - at the beginning of September last year and had only been on maternity leave for 20 days before she gave birth.

The presenter's baby news came just a few months after she admitted she was worried she may have left it too late to have kids as her mother went through early menopause.

She said: "It's useful to know because we shouldn't hang about, but at the end of the day, what can you do? You hope it will happen. It might, it might not.

"The more pressure you put on yourself, the worse it becomes, because the one thing you want gets further out of reach. I haven't chosen to leave it until I'm 39 - that is the situation I have found myself in."
