Alex Jones makes surprise return to The One Show TONIGHT just halfway through maternity leave

ALEX Jones will make a surprise return to The One Show TONIGHT – just halfway through her maternity leave.

The 44-year-old went on maternity leave back in August ahead of welcoming her third child – and first daughter – with husband Charlie Thomson.

Since then, Alex has appeared on the BBC programme on a couple of occasions and at the end of Thursday's show, co-host Ronan Keating revealed she would be back again tonight.

He said: "Last show of the year tomorrow. Alex Jones will be back. She'll be joining myself and JJ to talk Strictly ahead of this weekend's final.

Angellica Bell added: "We'll always be joined by Lad Baby, who are hoping to have their fourth number one single this Christmas."

Alex and Charlie welcomed daughter Annie in August, a younger sister for their sons Teddy and Kit.

Alex made a special appearance on The One Show in September via video link and spoke about her newborn.

She said: "Ah, it is so nice to be back. You know what, we have been great.

Last week, Alex showed off her incredible post-baby figure as she enjoyed a very special night out in aid of the Marie Keating Foundation.

Alex wore a sparkling dress as she posed alongside Charlie, and captioned the shots on her Instagram: "

She wrote: "Last night I had the pleasure and privilege of hosting the #emeraldandivyball for @rokeating and @stormykeating all in aid of the #mariekeatingfoundation and @cr_uk.

"What they pulled off was incredible, a decadent roaring 20s themed night that raised 890k. It was lovely to meet the whole family too."
