"It just seems like a good time to share some news with everybody, and the crew in the studio for the first time," the glamorous brunette said.

She went on: "Lockdown's been anything but predictable and we've had some really unexpected news – baby number three is on the way!"

When Ronan Keating, who was her co-host for the day, asked if she would reveal the baby's sex, Alex admitted she was expecting a girl.

The star shares two sons with her husband Charlie

The presenter and her husband, Charlie Thomson, are already devoted parents to sons Teddy, four, and Kit, who is one.

Perhaps it's a pregnancy craving, but Alex went on to reveal a surprising food preference on social media a few days later.

Sharing a snap of a takeaway her husband had brought home, she showed fans that she was sitting down with fish and chips – plus a whole bottle of vinegar for herself!

"He knows me so well...he bought me a whole bottle of vinegar…" she wrote, adding: "Yum!"
