During the ongoing lockdown, Alex has been busy balancing her TV career with being a mum to her two young children, Kit and Teddy. Last month, the TV presenter and her husband celebrated Kit's first birthday at home. "The first year has disappeared in a blink of an eye and our little Kit is one," Alex wrote in a touching message.

"This photograph feels like yesterday and like lots of parents I'm anxious that time is moving so fast, but getting to know this gentle soul has been incredible whilst watching Teddy become a big brother too."

Kit's birthday comes shortly after Alex was forced to celebrate her 43rd birthday in March, when social distancing was almost in full swing. Meanwhile, earlier this year, Alex returned to The One Show following her maternity leave with Kit, and has been continuing to front the show each weekday.
