Just hours before, Alex told her followers she had "mixed feelings" about her return to The One Show after being on maternity leave for almost a year. To mark the occasion, the mum-of-two shared a gorgeous black-and-white photo with her two young sons, two-year-old Teddy and seven-month-old Kit. "Back to work today," she wrote on Instagram on Monday morning. "So many different feelings. Anxious about leaving the boys, excited to be back on the show."

She added: "As soon as I put lipstick on this morning, little Ted looked at me with his huge brown eyes and asked, 'Where are you going mummy?' It nearly killed me, but it's time to go back and I'm looking forward to going back to a job I love, but my goodness, I'll miss these two. So here we go... the juggle begins."
