The One Show host Alex Jones has announced that she is expecting her third child - sharing her happy news with co-presenter Ronan Keating and viewers on Thursday night's episode on BBC One. 

Jones revealed that she and husband Charlie Thomson are expecting a baby girl.

Co-host Keating had been joking about "lockdown babies" and asked Jones if she had anything to add. 

"I feel really nervous all of a sudden," Jones replied. "It just seems like a good time to share some news with everybody, and the crew in the studio for the first time. 

"I mean, lockdown has been anything but predictable and we've had some really unexpected news - baby number three is on the way." 

"We didn't see that one coming but we're delighted," she added, before revealing that she is expecting a girl.

Jones and Thomson are already parents to sons Teddy and Kit.
