It's a problem that every parent can relate to. Alex Jones revealed on Wednesday that she had to take her baby son Teddy to work with her, after her childcare plans fell through. Taking to Twitter, the One Show host shared her dilemma with her followers, writing: "Childcare fallen through, so it's take your baby to work day. First stop, voice over. Wish me luck." Her post elicited sympathetic messages from fans. "We have all been there. I had to take mine to work when I was a dental nurse, just imagine that!! #carnagewithtools," one wrote. Another added: "Welcome to the joys of working motherhood!" Radio DJ Lauren Laverne was quick to offer assistance, meanwhile. "Does he like experimental synth music? I can have him for an hour if so. Good luck x," she tweeted.

It's just the best time."

The Welsh TV star is currently working on a new book, Winging It! A Survival Guide for New Mums, based on her experiences of motherhood. As she sat down to start work on the new project earlier this year, Alex told fans: "Here we go! I'm really nervous about writing this new book. I've never done it before so goodness knows how it'll turn out (winging it in the true sense of the word). I'm also nervous because, as we know, people are very quick to judge other mums even though all we're doing is trying our best. Anyway, let's give it a go."
