Stacey Dooley will replace Alex Jones on "The One Show".

The "Strictly Come Dancing" champion is one of several guest hosts set to fill in for the presenter while she's away until later this year on maternity leave.

As well as broadcaster Stacey, the BBC has also lined up "The Voice" host Emma Willis and former "Great British Bake Off" star Mel Giedroyc to step in for stints on the show over the next few months.

Regarding the incoming hosts, Alex - who already has two-year-old son Ted with husband Charlie Thomson - said: "I know The One Show will be in very capable hands while I'm on maternity leave and good luck to all the guest presenters - I hope they have as much fun as I do on the show. "I'll be back on the sofa in the autumn, but in the meantime, I plan on watching from my own sofa with little Teddy and the newest addition!"

The incoming trio of stars will also be joined by regular guest presenters Angela Scanlon, Angellica Bell and Michelle Ackerley.

Stacey's week on the show will commence on July 29, and she'll be following by Michelle from August 5.

The news comes as Alex, 42, had her last show alongside co-host Matt Baker on Thursday (25.04.19) as he won't be presenting with her on Friday.

She said: "It does feel weird ... It's going to be odd, yes but it'll be quick. I'll be back in the autumn. Keep the seat warm."
