Presenting The One Show much easier than being a mum, jokes Alex Jones

By Julia Hunt

Alex Jones felt as if she had never left The One Show.

New mother Alex Jones has joked that her return to The One Show was “much easier” than being off on maternity leave.

The presenter, 40, took time off from the BBC show after having a son in January.

Co-host Matt Baker asked how being back at work compared to being at home and she quipped: “Much easier.

“I’ve had a cup of tea with two hands – that’s amazing!”

She added: “Why didn’t you tell me it was so difficult? Nobody says that, do they?”

Alex said she felt as if she had not left the show and that she had had “the best three and a half months”.

On Twitter, fans were delighted to see her back alongside Matt.

The presenter said she was initially returning to the programme for two days a week.

Michelle Ackerley and Angela Scanlon fronted the programme with Matt while Alex was off.
