New 'One Show' Alex Jones admits her grandad once got her confused with her predecessor Christine Bleakley, but she didn't correct him
Alex Jones' grandad gets her confused with Christine Bleakley.
The Welsh presenter is about to take over from Christine on 'The One Show' and many have compared their looks, and while Alex insists this doesn't bother her, she says sometimes their similarities have confused her family members.
She said: "As they don't know me, comparisons with Christine are obvious. Three years ago, even my granddad said, 'Congratulations, I saw you on the telly.' I didn't like to correct him thinking I was on BBC1 because it would never happen. And now. he can watch me every night, still thinking it's me!"
But Alex says she isn't worried about people commenting on her looks as she just wants to prove she can do a good job.
She told Radio Times magazine: "We're there to ask interesting questions, not to look amazing."
Alex will be presenting the show with comic Jason Manford - who is taking over from Adrian Chiles - and he is hoping viewers give them a chance.
He said: "There'll be those who loved Christine and Adrian so much no one would be good enough, but most will give us a chance. The show is bigger than us, though. It would carry on whoever did it."
