Tonight on The One Show, Alex Jones was joined by former Strictly Come Dancing star Alex Scott and she received quite a surprise at the end of the episode when her mum joined via video link. Alex J was left fighting back tears as she revealed she hadn’t seen her mum for months and insisted they would be reunited soon. But that wasn’t the only surprise as Alex S went on to reveal the host would be taking a step back from The One Show for a well deserved break.

Alex S began: “And Alex we have to let everyone know, you’ve been busy keeping everyone entertained during the lockdown, working so hard to keep smiles on everyone’s faces.

“You are going away for two weeks. You fully deserve it.”

Alex Jones replied: “I am,” as she flashed a cheeky smile at the camera.

“You know what it has been a real privilege to come to work every day with all of you lot and also thanks for being the reason, along with my family for getting me through this really weird time.

“It’s been a real honour to be here doing this job. It’s only two weeks, I will be back on the 20th.”

Alex J will be hoping to spend time with her family after presenting every episode of The One Show since lockdown began with a whole host of different co-hosts.

It’s yet to be revealed who will be stepping in to host The One Show while Alex is on a break.

Fans of the show rushed to Twitter to wish Alex a lovely time away from the show.

One wrote: “It was lovely. Hope you have a great two weeks off with the family.”

Another added: “Alex hope you have a well deserved lovely break and thank you for helping me get through this lockdown take care and stay safe.”

The news she was taking a break came after it was revealed Rylan Clark-Neal was supposed to be presenting alongside her today.

In view of his 1.6 million viewers, Rylan tweeted: “Can’t make the one show tonight which is gutting but wishing @MissAlexjones and all the @BBCTheOneShow team a happy 3000th episode! Xxxx.”
