Alex uploaded a series of short clips to her Instagram Stories, revealing that she was preparing for the incredible encounter.

Talking to the camera, the mum-of-two said: "Oh my gosh, exciting news incoming, I may be interviewing Cher in an hour's time. THE Cher."

Alex then broke out into a rendition of the star's hit song Believe, before adding: "It could be happening."

An hour later, made up and having changed from her low-key grey sweater into an incredible silver sparkly top, Alex uploaded another video in which she beamed as she said: "It's actually happening, here she comes!"

Shortly after the interview, Alex shared a photo showing her and Cher in The One Show studio.

She captioned the sweet photo: "One min I’m in the park with the boys, next min, quick makeup job and chatting to Cher about an elephant she’s rescued. Life is like a box of chocolates..."

Alex was delighted to be interviewing Cher 

The presenter's fans were suitably impressed and envious of her time with the legendary singer.

One commented: "Omg Alex that's amazing you got to meet Cher."

Another added: "I was stuck at school all day," followed by laughing emojis, while a third chimed in: "OMG THATS AMAZING!!!! It’s Cher!!!!"

Alex is always the consummate on-screen professional but this isn't the first time she's been a little starstruck behind the scenes.

Last month, the TV host took to Instagram to share a photo of herself with former Spice Girl Geri Horner, and admitted it was something of a surreal experience.

She captioned the snapshot: "I often wonder what my 18-year-old self would make of all this? #coloursoftheworldspiceupyourlife."
