Alex Scott never seems to put a foot wrong when it comes to her fashion. The TV star, who is set to become the new Football Focus presenter this summer, showed off her fabulous – and daring – sense of style as she modelled a thigh-skimming shirt dress and leather boots.

Posing for an Instagram snap, Alex gazed into the distance and worked her magic in the all-leather look. "She's got class and style, Street knowledge by the pile, Very low key on the profile," Alex playfully wrote, quoting the lyrics of No Diggity.

She went on to thank departing host Dan, who has been at the helm of the show for 12 years, saying that she will be "forever grateful" for the 44-year-old for the part he played in helping her land the role.
