The One Show presenter Alex Jones is really having some trouble with her fake tan.

For the second time this week, Alex's less-than-successful tanning application came up on the air during the BBC chatshow — this time when she was joined by guest co-presenter Rylan Clark-Neal.

Rylan is well known for his fake tanning skills, so he couldn't help but point out that Alex had a mishap while applying hers backstage.

"I've got to reference it. You're a woman of the people. I've had this problem, myself," he admitted.

Rylan encouraged Alex to give the viewers "a little wave", which his co-host hilarious refused to do at first. Eventually, she bashfully held up her hands to reveal very visible tan streaks.

"Look at that hand," Rylan chuckled. "We had a little chat in the dressing room and she was like, 'What can I do?! What can I do?! I was like, 'I'll bring you something in tomorrow!' I've been there, done it!"

At least Rylan was a little nicer about pointing out Alex's mishap than her previous co-host for the week, Gethin Jones.

The Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two reporter actually took a pretty cheeky swipe at Alex when she complimented his tan after he reported he'd been "enjoying" himself in the garden.

"Yours is patchy," Gethin pointed and laughed.

How rude! Considering Alex just had to smack down a One Show viewer for complaining that she was wearing "pyjamas" to work, it seems like the presenter deserves a little leeway for a bit!

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