The One Show airs on weekdays at 7pm and is fronted by Alex Jones, Ronan Keating and Jermaine Jenas as well as a host of rotating presenters. However, on Monday the BBC magazine show was missing from its usual slot and will continue to remain off the air for a few weeks as the show takes a break over the summer.

The BBC magazine show aired its final episode before its summer break last Friday. 

Alex was joined by Gethin Jones and the pair interviewed Hugh Jackman, Suranne Jones and Richard E Grant.

The Welsh presenter broke down in tears during the show as she made her exit from her presenting role to begin her maternity leave. 

Gethin concluded the show by showing Alex a video of her friends and family waving her off before the presenters wished viewers a happy summer.

“Hopefully I’ll be back in the autumn,” Alex remarked and Gethin added: “You will be.”

“Thank you for having me in your lounge every night,” Alex said.

“And thanks to the crew as well, they’re very important.”

“Thanks to our guests as well, Richard, Suranne, Hugh, thank you so much,” Gethin noted. 

“Rip Off Britain will be here on Monday, have a great break,” he said.

Signing off for her maternity leave, Alex added: “Have a great summer, bye.” 

Julia Somerville, Gloria Hunniford and Angela Rippon’s Rip Off Britain takes The One Show’s spot on Monday. 

The trio will be questioning whether social media firms are doing enough to help small businesses being targeted by ransom demands.
