The 44-year-old will be taking back presenting duties on the BBC's flagship magazine programme and will be joined by McFly star Harry Judd.

This is her third child with her husband Charlie Thomson and the first girl, who they named Annie. 

When announcing her departure earlier this summer, Alex got emotional about saying goodbye to The One Show.

"I know it's the third one but it's really hard to go away," she confessed.

Thanking her fans for sending her homemade presents for her little one, she continued: "And I just want to say, if I've missed anybody, a big thank you to everybody who's knitted and given little gifts for the baby.”

"There's about 24 cardigans, she’s gonna be in cardigan heaven!" joked Jones. 

"Honestly, I loved every minute. It's very hard to leave," added the presenter with tears in her eyes. 

As well as making a remote appearance to introduce the baby to the show right after the birth, Jones made a quick comeback last month to co-host with Jermaine Jenas when presenting the opening of the RHS Garden of Hope at the Chelsea Flower Show.
