The mother-of-three made no mention of her Instagram post or family situation as she co-hosted the BBC One show with former professional footballer Jermaine Jenas, and interviewed guests such as Celebrity MasterChef contestants Danny Jones, Paul Chuckle and Nancy Dell'Olio.

Alex was a regular on her Instagram until late June, when she posted her last update. Since then, the star has been quiet - until Tuesday afternoon, when she explained the reasons behind her social media silence.

Alongside a painting of some lemons, Alex wrote: "Things have been a bit tricky for us recently and in all honesty, I haven't had time to be on here between working and the children but I randomly logged on and saw all your lovely messages gently asking if we were all ok."

She continued: "I was touched by your kindness and so I just wanted to check in and say thank you, and that even though life has been a bit challenging, we are ok and still managing to enjoy the beginning of the holidays and there's still plenty to smile about! (I'll pop some stuff on my stories) #whenlifegivesyoulemons #thekindnessofstrangers."

The presenter was soon inundated with well wishes from friends and fans, with Charlotte Hawkins writing: "Hope all OK, sending love." Izzy Judd added: "Sending love." One fan stated: "Keep smiling that lovely smile, lots of love."

Another post read: "Never apologise Alex, for being a working mum/wife/having a life outside of the public eye. I came off of all social media, except IG, because too many people had expectations about when I did and didn't post! Problem solved."
