Alex Jones finally opens up on when she’s returning to The One Show: ‘Wasn’t quite ready’

Alex Jones, 42, gave birth to her second child, Kit, with husband Charlie Thomson, back in May, and the couple are also parents to Teddy, who turns three in January. And, the presenter appears to be very much enjoying life as a mum-of-two as she admitted she couldn’t bring herself to get back to work on The One Show this autumn.

Alex revealed she will be back on screens in the New Year, after stepping back from the show in April as she headed on maternity leave.

The Welsh beauty said she wasn’t ready to leave her two sons to meet her original date, this autumn, and will be back in January.

She began her posts on Instagram: “Btw… for those who are asking when I’m coming back to work…”

“I know I said Autumn,” she continued with a straight face emoji. “But I’m having a lovely time with the boys and wasn’t quite ready yet so…”

“I’ve decided to go back to the @bbctheoneshow in January after the Christmas break,” she revealed with a kiss emoji.

Alex shared the decision about when she will be returning to work as many fans have been commenting on her Instagram pictures asking when she’ll be back.

One person had posted: “Missing you on The One Show. When are you back?”

Another recently said: “When are you back on The One Show Alex – we miss you xx.”

On The One Show, Alex has been replaced by a number of presenters including Angela Scanlon, Angellica Bell, Stacey Dooley and Michelle Ackerley.

Despite not going back to the BBC One show until January, Alex has been busy with other work commitments.

The star attended BAFTA Cymru last week as she attended the event which explored the career of Welsh actor Taron Egerton.

Carol Vorderman was also in attendance and tweeted after the bash: “Ooh yes we had a wonderful ‘Wales in London’ night thanks to @WelshGovernment.”(sic)

The Countdown legend continued: “And when Aberystwyth man Taron Egerton gave me a namecheck…I did blush a bit I admit @MissAlexjones @BAFTACymru.”

Meanwhile, Alex’s The One Show co-host, Matt Baker, has a new role to get stuck into as he’s performing in the pantomime Goldilocks and the Three Bears this month.

Speaking to Graham Norton on his BBC Radio 2 show at the weekend, the presenter admitted he’s worried about some of the risky moves he will be doing.

Discussing the character to Graham, Matt said: “I’m Joey the Clown, who is desperate to be star of the show and it’s not meant to be.

“I’m not going to give too much away about what happens but my role is basically like an audition for Cirque du Soleil with the amount of stuff that I’m doing.”

Seeming concerned, Graham quizzed Matt: “Do they really make you do terrible things?”

“Well, it’s not terrible things but it’s kind of circusy things and unicycling and juggling and walking on a tightrope,” the Countryfile favourite revealed.

The One Show airs weekdays on BBC One at 7pm.
