The One Show host Alex Jones has been on our screens for years now, but it’s time for her to take on a different kind of presenting role. It has been announced, the welsh journalist has been handed her own show on BBC Radio Wales starting next month.

“I’m so excited to get my headphones back on for BBC Radio Wales and to play some of my favourite songs,” Alex recently explained. 

“There is something so special about radio.

“The connection you can have with the listeners and there’s something extra special about talking to people in Wales,” she added.

So far, the Sunday morning slot has been presented by the likes of Eve Myles, Carol Vorderman, Colin Jackson, Suzanne Packer and broadcaster Anna Ryder Richardson.

Alex’s first guests will be comedian husband and wife duo Rhod Gilbert and Sian Harries, who created their own podcast during lockdown. 

She will also be joined by the likes of Denise Van Outen who will be talking musicals.
