A third noted: "@AlexScott has raised awareness for mental health. People on Twitter still continue to be cruel. Fair enough if you don’t like her presenting but as for her grammar and appearance, if you don’t have anything nice to say, keep in mind the impact unkind words can have."

As well as attending glittering events, Alex has a jam-packed work schedule hosting BBC One's Football Focus, The One Show, and is now presenting The Tournament. In a recent interview with Stylist, Alex opened up about how she switches off. "I've been trying to find the balance," she said.

"And I find meaning by making sure I take the time to switch off, go for a walk, listen to a podcast or do something with family and friends. It's about having fun away from everything else."
