The One Show has delivered some big news for fans who've missed seeing Alex Jones on telly each weeknight.

The presenter has been off on maternity leave ever since she and husband Charlie Thomson welcomed their beautiful newborn baby boy Edward Alun Burrell - or Teddy as his friends call him - back in January.

However, Alex sent in a video message to The One Show on Friday (April 21) revealing that her big return to the BBC One news magazine show is actually just around the corner.

"I'm coming back to The One Show on Monday," she revealed. "Matt, hopefully you'll look after me because I'll be feeling a bit nervous. Excited to see everybody, the whole team.

"It will be hard leaving little Ted, as every parent, I'm sure, understands. So yeah, I'll be back on Monday - two days to begin with. We'll see how we go!"

Filling in for Alex throughout her maternity leave has been Robot Wars favourite Angela Scanlon, who's shown grace under pressure even when she's stumbled over words… and physically stumbled live on air.

Much like Friday's big announcement, Alex broke the news of her "beautiful, healthy little baby boy" Teddy's arrival back in January with a live call-in to her One Show co-workers.

"We're absolutely delighted - we're completely in love with him. It's the most wonderful feeling," she beamed.
