The One Show’s Alex Jones took to Instagram last night (July 26) to tell fans that “life has been a bit challenging” lately.

The cryptic post comes after Alex disclosed on Instagram that her son Kit had a ‘routine’ procedure back in May, telling her 338,000 followers that it was the “longest morning of my life”.

In the Instagram post, The One Show presenter wrote: “Things have been a bit tricky for us recently, and in all honesty, I haven’t had time to be on here between working and the children.

“But I randomly logged on and saw all of your lovely messages, gently asking if we were all ok.”

The Welsh presenter went on to thank her kind fans, writing: “I was touched by your kindness, and so I just wanted to check in and say thank you, and that even though life has been a bit challenging.

“We are okay and still managing to enjoy the beginning of the holidays, and there’s still plenty to smile about!”

She ended the post with #whenlifegivesyoulemons and #thekindnessofstrangers.
