Alex Jones has admitted that she would swap her TV career for a job in a fertility clinic after becoming inspired working in one while filming a new series.

The One Show presenter, 45, trained as a fertility assistant in King's Fertility Clinic in London as part of her new TV series, Alex Jones: Making Babies.

She admitted she was left so in awe of how the 'unbelievable' staff helped people who want to be parents that she said she would 'swap' her TV career to work there.

Speaking at a Q&A to launch the forthcoming series, Jones told interviewer Stacey Dooley: 'Honestly, after six months, I would swap my job to work with that team.

'I always thought it might be nice to be a nurse when I was growing up. But, oh my God, just the job satisfaction. God it's much harder than what we do.

'The level of satisfaction is off the charts, I was just in awe really every time I went through the door.

'They're just unbelievable human beings - their levels of kindness. They're like angels walking around.'

Alex herself has suffered baby loss and pregnancy difficulties in the past, and she did not have her first child with husband Charlie until she was 39. The couple share sons Teddy, five, and Kit, three, and daughter Annie, one. 

Reflecting on her time working at the centre, she admitted she messed up her first blood test and said her first try out was on a doctor having fertility treatment as a patient.

Alex said she didn't want to be a 'clumsy TV presenter' while training and filming at King's - one of the world's leading reproduction centre headed by Director Dr Ippokratis Sarris.

She said: 'You know when you feel like the new girl when you start a new job, but I really felt like the new girl.

'Dr Sarris, he's a hard boss, but I was terrified of him the first few weeks.'

When she was allowed to do her first blood test, Alex said she was shocked to find out her first attempt was on an actual paediatric doctor called Katie.

She said: 'She's a doctor! So I'm doing a blood test on a doctor. Why was she my first one?

She added afterwards: 'It didn't go very well. She kept giving me tips on how to find the vein.
