After eight months away from the hit teatime show, Alex Jones returned to present The One Show on BBC One last night. Sitting alongside co-host Patrick Kielty, the pair discussed her time away as well as her feelings about her return, which led to a surprise statement from the TV presenter.
As the opening credits ended, Patrick and Alex were all smiles as her comeback episode got underway.
Following their introductions, Patrick quipped to his co-host: “You never lose it!”
However, Alex’s response left her fellow presenter rather on edge about the upcoming show.
Alex responded: “Well, so they say, we’ll see. I feel really nervous!”

The 42-year-old continued: “It’s been eight months! You know, it’s been lovely with little Kit and Ted…
“But I do feel like, I don’t know. Like it’s the first time ever I’ve done it.”
The revelation appeared to stop Patrick in his tracks as he began to question how the rest of the show would go.
Patrick replied: “That’s quite nervous for me because I was hoping that you’d actually come and everything would be so completely fine.”
