However, Alex hit back: "Just to clarify, no haircut has happened since the end of Feb, before lockdown (which was a tiny trim).

"I’m sort of pleased that you think I have had it cut though because it’s a right mess!!!!!"

Alex is still hosting The One Show with social distancing measures in place.

The star has been presenting the BBC One show with Gethin Jones and Huw Edwards after her co-star Matt Baker quit.

Just to clarify, no haircut has happened since the end of Feb.

Earlier this week, Alex was in tears over actor Christopher Eccelston's touching tribute to NHS workers, a poem penned by a fellow Salford resident.

He began: "I'll tell you a tale that's been recently written, of a powerful army so Great it saved Britain."

He continued to talk about the valiant efforts of "our soldiers in blue" to save the lives of those infected with COVID-19. As he spoke, a montage of doctors and nurses played on the screen.

Christopher concluded: "So let's line the streets and remember our debt. We love you, our heroes. Lest we forget."

When the camera cut back to hosts Alex and Gethin on the sofas, Alex was visibly emotional as she struggled to speak through tears.
