Alex Jones reacts to the BBC’s “replacement,” which she confirmed on The One Show last week.
ALEX JONES reacted to the announcement of her replacement on Shop Well For Less, which she announced on The One Show last week.
On tonight’s episode of The One Show, Alex Jones, 44, was joined by her co-host, Gethin Jones, 43. The pregnant actress spoke with Joanna Page, 44, of Gavin and Stacey, as she revealed some happy news with viewers.
Alex will be “taken over” by the small-screen diva, who recently announced she is expecting her fourth kid.
It comes after it was reported last month that Joanna and her co-star Melanie Sykes will be taking over the consumer series Shop Well For Less from The One Show’s Steph McGovern.
“Now then, not content with being the nation’s sweetheart on Gavin and Stacey, Joanna Page is now fronting the latest series of Shop Well For Less,” Alex said, addressing the major news.
“It’s a great show to work on,” she continued.
“I’m taking over from the great Alex [Jones] and Steph [McGovern],” Joanna said.
“I’m going to keep the Welsh contingent!”
The consumer and lifestyle series was previously hosted by Alex and Steph, although the latter stepped down upon her move to Channel 4.
The revelation of Joanna’s new presenting job comes as Alex announced her final week on The One Show as she prepared for her maternity leave and summer break.
The Welsh television presenter and her husband, Charlie Thomson, are expecting their third child in a few weeks.
The BBC host revealed on Instagram that it was her “final week” on the show.
The mother-of-two posed in a gorgeous yellow dress while updating her 300,000 Instagram followers.

“Last week on the program before we break for the summer and I go on mat leave,” she wrote.
And, as she prepared to wind down before “the baba arrives,” Alex tweeted another photo of her baby bump and claimed she had liked the show “so much.”
