Ever since Matt Baker stepped down earlier this year, Alex Jones has been the only permanent host of The One Show. The Welsh presenter is joined by a host of famous faces and BBC favourites each evening but was notably missing from tonight’s show as Michelle Ackerley stepped in to fill her presenting spot.
On Monday, Alex announced she would be joined by Michael Ball for this week’s shows.
Over the last few months, the musical theatre star has presented the programme alongside Alex on several occasions and has become a firm One Show favourite.
However, on Tuesday, Michael revealed he would be presenting the show without Alex on Wednesday.
He said: “Alex is having the night off tomorrow so I’ll be here with Michelle Ackerley and we’ll be talking to Phillip Schofield.”
Matt Allwright would also be joining them in the studio for Watchdog Wednesday.
Before his interview, Phillip was scolded by Michelle after she and Michael caught the This Morning host stealing chocolate.
Introducing the ITV presenter, Michael said: “Now Phillip Scofield is in our green room.”
“Now the last time we had ITV here, Ant and Dec started stealing everything from the fridge,” Michael added. “So we are actually watching.”
