Alex Jones has two new leading men in her life with Boyzone’s Ronan Keating and footballer Jermaine Jenas confirmed to join her permanently on The One Show.
The pair will be the first official replacements of Matt Baker, who left the show in early 2020 after nine years on the series.
Since then, the team have been on the hunt for someone to sit full-time beside fan favourite Alex, who announced at the end of March she is pregnant with her third child.
Other guest hosts have included Rylan Clark-Neal, Chris Ramsay, Alex Scott and Michael Ball.
‘I’ve absolutely loved being a part of The One Show, Alex, the team and the viewers have made me feel so welcome and we’ve had a lot of fun already,’ said Jermaine.
‘I’m really looking forward to joining as a full time host alongside Ronan.’

‘Presenting The One Show is such a special privilege, especially in the last year – I am proud of the role we’ve played in keeping the nation company through these difficult times,’ said Alex, who has been with the show for the past decade.
‘We’re so lucky to have an amazing family of talent on The One Show and I’ve really loved getting to know Jermaine and Ronan on the sofa, it’s so exciting that they will be my co-hosts all year round.’
Ronan added: ‘I’m so delighted to officially be a part of The One Show family. It’s a show I’ve loved for many years as both a guest and a host and I can’t wait to get started alongside Alex, Jermaine and the wonderful team behind the scenes.’
Starting from May 10, Jermaine will co-present with Alex from Monday to Wednesday, with Ronan joining Alex on the sofa on Thursday and Friday.
Amol Rajan and Alex Scott will continue to co-host episodes across the year.
The One Show airs weekdays from 7pm on BBC One.
