Alex Jones is back on The One Show couch after nearly two weeks off screens.

The presenter was back with guest presenter Michael Ball on Tuesday's (November 10) episode of The One Show to interview Kylie Minogue, after spending the last two weeks at home in COVID-19 quarantine.

"She's back in the studio," Ball beamed, with Alex adding: "It's nice to be back!"

Alex also shared what it was like to be in quarantine, admitting that there were some major challenges to having two very young sons in full lockdown.

"At points it was really hard, but we had what we needed. We were really lucky, and I'm glad to be back," she said.

Alex had last appeared on The One Show via video remote from her home on October 30 to explain that she'd have to sit out all of the following week because of exposure to the virus.

"I'm absolutely gutted that I'm not there," she told viewers. "What's happened is, a friend of mine, someone outside work who I saw a few days ago, has tested positive for coronavirus.

"We've done the right thing as a family and isolated. I've taken a test and thankfully it's negative… We are staying in. We are following guidelines."

The One Show announced another COVID-19 complication this week, when Matt Baker confirmed that Children in Need's Rickshaw Challenge would have to change its format.

The team of inspiring young rickshaw drivers were sent home when a member of the crew tested positive for COVID-19. The Rickshaw Challenge will continue as competitors carry on at home.

The One Show airs Mondays through Fridays at 7pm on BBC One.
