The staycation was no doubt extra special for the TV star as she was finally reunited with her parents after lockdown restrictions were eased. Earlier this month, Alex was surprised by her mum Mary via video link on The One Show, bursting into tears when she saw her.

"Oh, Mam! Oh, Mam! It's not going to be very long [until we reunite] what is it, five days? It's been four very long months," she said, before adding: "Normally, Mam's very put-together, but this is the first time I've seen her get quite emotional."

Meanwhile, the heartwarming holiday comes shortly after Alex opened up about juggling her two young kids with her television career during lockdown. Admitting that it has at times been "overwhelming," she told The Telegraph's Stella Magazine: "Doing it all, I think, is really, really hard. All I hope is that it doesn't get harder for women. Because - sometimes, some days - the pressure is pretty unbearable."

"Mum often says to me, 'You know Al, I knew what I was supposed to be in a day. I was supposed to be a mother. You're trying to be a mother in the morning and then be somebody completely professional in the afternoon.'

"Sometimes, that is tricky, because your mindset doesn't necessarily flip as quickly as you want it to." Despite the challenges, Alex confessed she has been enjoying spending extra time with her loved ones during lockdown.
