In spite of her absence, the star was representing her team colours with a bright red phone case which can be seen propped up against glasses of water, so she doesn't miss a minute of the Arsenal game.

Despite her table manners, Alex was as glam as always wearing black with gold statement earrings. She wore her long black hair swept to one side.

The star then showed a rare clip of her mum trying to enjoy her dessert, interrupted by Alex filming her – it’s nice to see the pair enjoying some quality time together.

Things have been non-stop for the BBC presenter who recently announced she was writing a book and reported she is utilising her time away to write.

Just before the snap at the table, Alex took an up-close selfie where she donned two plaits and a black snap-back cap which she wore backwards. On the image, she wrote: "trying to write the last couple chapters of my book but will still try to watch the game later…COYG".

Alex's new book, How (Not) To Be Strong is due to come out on 29 September.
