What is the BBC One Show and RHS Garden of Hope?

The ‘Garden of Hope’ was designed by Gardeners’ World presenter and award-winning garden designer Arit Anderson.

It aims to illustrate how horticulture can provide a sense of hope.

A wooden sculpture created by Charlie Whinney will be central to the garden, and the words inscribed on the bench have been contributed by The One Show viewers.

It also incorporates seating areas and a swing.

Why is Alex Jones not on The One Show at the moment?

Alex is currently on maternity leave from The One Show.

The Welsh TV presenter, 44, welcomed a baby girl last month.

She and husband Charlie Thomson already have two sons called Ted and Kit.

Alex recently revealed they had named their baby girl Annie.

She said: “We are all beyond happy and besotted by her, especially Ted and Kit.

“Watching them with their brand new little sister is just the best and we can’t believe how lucky we are to have the three of them and to be a family of five.

“It still doesn’t feel real!!!”

Alex Jones maternity leave

Alex’s maternity leave started in August 2021 – just days before she gave birth.

She told her fans at the time: “You’ll know that I’m prone to a good cry on the show at the best of times but seeing those messages at the end, especially from mum and dad and Charlie really set me off.”

She added: “I’ll miss being on that sofa at 7 and of course, the brilliant team who work so hard behind the scenes.

“That is actually the last time ever that I’ll sit on that particular sofa as we are having a bit of a revamp over the summer hols.”

During her absence, her co-hosts Ronan Keating and Jermaine Jenas continue to host with a series of guest presenters, including Alex Scott and Angela Scanlon.

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