On Wednesday’s The One Show on BBC One, Jermaine and Alex had spoken with guests Alice Cooper and The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco all about their upcoming projects. However, Jermaine has a rather daunting project of his own ahead of him as he and Alex Scott are taking on a mammoth Red Nose and Spoon race for Comic Relief. So when Alex revealed at the end of the episode that Jermaine wouldn’t be hosting for the rest of the week in order to isolate for the challenge, Jermaine took her by surprise by walking off early.
After bidding farewell to rockstar Alice Cooper, Alex thanked the show’s guests before turning her attention to Jermaine.
“And thank you for this week,” Alex said to Jermaine before she explained: “Now, Jermaine is off to isolate now for the Red Nose and Spoon race challenge.
“So Ronan Keating will be with me tomorrow,” she added – expecting Jermaine to weigh in with his sign-off.
But instead, Jermaine stood up and headed off the set of the BBC show, saying: “That’s right, have a good one.

“Remember my team’s gonna be winning alright,” he quipped before launching a soft toy Alex’s way as she stayed sat in silence.
“Oi!” Alex eventually shouted after her co-star as he disappeared out of shot.
However, as the theme music played, it seemed like Alex saw the funny side of Jermaine’s abrupt walk-off as she could be seen giggling as the theme music played.
The reason behind Jermaine’s isolation is so he and two teammates from Comic Relief-backed project can take on the challenge for this year’s charity campaign.
Speaking about the task ahead, Jermaine said earlier this week: “I’m excited and apprehensive to be taking on the red nose and spoon race for this special One Show and Comic Relief Challenge.
“I’ve been training hard and can’t wait to get started. I’m looking forward to the challenge with my teammates and have ultimately got my mind on the end goal – completing the distance in one piece and raising money and awareness for such a great cause.”
Alex was similarly excited as she joined The One Show hosts to discuss her feelings towards the challenge too.
“I always love a good adventure so I’m really looking forward to being part of the Comic Relief Challenge this year,” Alex said.
