At the end of The One on Friday (July 3), Alex was surprised by his co-host Alex Scott.
Earlier, Alex Jones had made a video call to Liz who set up a food bank to help during the pandemic. She surprised Liz with a video montage of people Liz had helped thank her for.
But it was Alex’s turn to be shocked when the other Alex read a message from Mary.

“We have received a message from Mary, who is somewhere near Swansea, who says that she is looking forward to seeing her daughter whom she has not seen for 16 weeks. “
However, Alex started to realize what was going on at that time and tightened his chest.
“In fact, she can’t wait any longer,” said Alex. “Here it is actually …”
On the screen then flashed Mary. Alex was overcome with emotion and shouted, “Hiya, mom. “
“It’s been four very long months,” said Mary, starting to tear herself apart.
Alex said, “Oh my God, Mam has always been successful, but this is the first time I have seen her become very emotional. “

Alex Scott then revealed that Alex Jones was taking a break from The One Show.
