The One Show has revealed Strictly star and journalist Stacey Dooley as one of several presenters co-hosting the show while Alex Jones is on maternity leave.
Emma Willis and Mel Giedroyc are also lined up, along with regular guest-hosts Angellica Bell, Angela Scanlon and Michelle Ackerley.
Jones, who is expecting her second child, said the show would be in “very capable hands” and wished them luck.
She will return at a later date, after her final pre-baby show on Friday.
