Alex Jones, 44, was left in awe at the brashness of her ex-boyfriend after he stepped in and stole her job to interview Angelina Jolie. The One Show presenter recalled she was in one of her first jobs in TV when he took the opportunity to meet the Hollywood actress behind her back.

Not surprisingly, we split up live on telly

Chatting to Angela Scanlon on her Thanks A Million podcast, Alex opened up about the situation which caused her to break-up with him live on-air.

Alex explained that they both worked in London after she was recruited for former Channel 4 breakfast show Rise, as their entertainment correspondent.

“I did all these junkets with film stars, so every Thursday I would come to London and then I would do Thursday and Friday with them and stay for the weekend,” she remembered.

“I must have been about 25 by this point and one day I was in Topshop on Oxford Street and the production company who made the show called the flat where we lived and said, ‘We need to speak to Alex’. Angelina Jolie is available for an interview and we need her to come and do it now.’

But instead of calling to let her know work needed her straight away, Alex’s boyfriend at the time decided he wanted to do the interview instead.

“He said, ‘Oh Alex is ill and she actually in Wales, but I could come,'” she said he had told the TV company.

“So off he went! I’m still in Topshop unbeknown to me, buying cheap jeans and shoes!”

Alex recalled getting back to the flat and waiting for hours on end for him to return before finally getting fed up and prepared to drive back to Cardiff.

But the worst was yet to come.

“Then the production company called and they were like, ‘We’ve got bit of a situation,'” she said.

“‘Tomorrow morning your boyfriend is going to the premiere with Angelina Jolie and it it would be really funny if you came on the line, live on the show and surprise him and said that you know exactly what he’s been up to.'”

Cunning Alex agreed and decided to call out her ex in the best way possible.

“So on live telly I’m like, ‘You lied to me, where have you been?’

“Not surprisingly, we split up live on telly!”

Alex is now happily married to husband Charlie Thomson.

The pair tied the knot in 2012 after meeting at a party.

They share sons Teddy and Kit together and are about to welcome a little girl to the family.

Recently, Alex was rushed to hospital over the weekend to have her unborn baby monitored as her due date nears.

She told her followers: “Just been brought in to have a bit of monitoring.”

Relieved she added: “Nothing exciting so far.”
