The One Show host enlisted the help of her son Teddy to create some chocolate cupcakes, which they finished off with Halloween-themed decorations, despite the fact the spooky holiday is over.

Each cupcake was smeared with bright red icing and topped with googly eyes, Frankenstein's monster or skulls.

"I know it's over but in isolation...there are NO rules," Alex joked, before sarcastically commenting on the appearance of the cakes. "Don't they look delicious," she added.

Explaining the situation to stand-in host Gethin Jones, Alex, 43, said: "I am absolutely gutted that I am not there but what's happened is a friend of mine, somebody outside work who I saw a few days ago, has tested positive for coronavirus.
