Alex, 44, gave birth to daughter Annie in August and is also mum to sons, Ted, four, and Kit, two.

Presenters Ronan Keating and Jermaine Jenas announced on last night’s show when the new mum-of-three would be taking her seat back on the sofa.

After the pair shared some banter over the fact they were presenting the programme together for the first time ever, Jermaine, 38, told viewers: “She [Alex] will be back tomorrow and she will be launching what The One Show are doing for this year’s Children In Need appeal.”

“Yes, big sis is back,” added 44-year-old Ronan.

“They wouldn’t give that responsible job to you or I.”

Alex will resume her presenting duties tonight (Thursday) and will joined by McFly drummer Harry Judd.

Together they will reveal The One Show’s plans for fundraising during the BBC’s annual fundraising event.

This won’t be Alex’s first time back on the show since giving birth as she made an appearance just one week after her daughter’s birth.

Alex appeared via video link from her home and debuted her newborn live on the BBC show at the end of August.

She also revealed Annie’s name on the show a week later.

Plus there was a one-day stop in the studio for Alex as she introduced viewers to the RHS Garden of Hope at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The One Show viewers recently complained about the current presenter line-up, with the absence of both Matt Baker and Alex.

One wrote on Twitter: “Come back, Matt, all is forgiven! These two muppets can’t present for toffee!”

Someone else argued: “Bring back Alex Jones and Matt Baker. I’m fed up with the current amateurish presentation on The One Show.”

The One Show airs on weekdays at 7pm on BBC One.
