The One Show viewers divided as ‘anxious’ Alex Jones returns after maternity

The BBC presenter had been away from screens for months

Alex Jones admitted that she was feeling anxious about her return to The One Show yesterday.

The presenter welcomed daughter Annie into the world last year, and she took some much-deserved maternity leave back in August.

As she made her return to the sofa, Alex and her co-star, Jermaine Jenas, discussed their New Year’s resolutions.

Alex told her co-star: “Mine Jermaine is to be a bit more relaxed, so today is my first official day back from maternity.

“My husband Charlie on paternity and I need to learn to let go a bit of things at home. Let him do it his way. Tricky.”

Jermaine replied: “You don’t seem too happy with Charlie,” as Alex replied back: “It’s all good. A little bit anxious, but yeah it’s fine.”

Fans welcome Alex Jones back to The One Show

Alex needn’t have worried about anything, because fans were clearly happy to have her back.

Yay Alex is back, finally we have a decent host back on The One Show. 

In fact, numerous viewers took to social media to share their feelings about the star returning to the red sofa.

“I’m glad #theoneshow is back, and so is Alex Jones. Mock me but I like familiarity & routine,” said one fan.
