Alex Jones shared an emotional post to Instagram on Father's Day, revealing how much she was missing her parents. The One Show presenter posted a photo of her mum and dad standing together on a bridge, smiling. The pair wore matching sunglasses and posed by a pram in which a glimpse of Alex's youngest son could just be seen.

The mum-of-two captioned the picture: "Missing this Dad today! It’s the longest I haven’t seen my parents forever!! I’m finding it tough now but hoping that a cup of tea and a cwtch is on the horizon very soon, but in the meantime, Happy Father's Day to the best Dad (and Dats) in the West!"

Hopefully, Alex will still be able to make the most of her day with her husband and their two children. The star shares sons Teddy, three, and Kit, one, with Charlie Thomson.
