The One Show presenter Alex Jones, 44, took to Instagram yesterday evening to give fans an insight into her night in without husband Charlie Thomson. The BBC star, who is expecting her third baby with her other half, was getting ready to enjoy a film before worrying that it wouldn’t be the right thing to watch during her pregnancy.

Alex explained that she would be on her own last night, as Charlie had gone out to watch England’s Euro 2020 match against Czech Republic.

She then told her 299,000 followers that she was planning on watching Pieces of a Woman, which stars Vanessa Kirby.

In the critically acclaimed movie, Vanessa plays Martha Weiss, who experiences a heartbreaking home birth, which leaves her struggling with her emotional reaction while isolated from her partner and family by her grief.

Alex shared her concerns about watching the film despite its good reviews, as she is expecting a baby herself.

She said in a video: “While Charlie is out watching the England game, I’ve made myself a lovely Greek salad and I’m about to watch Pieces of a Woman. 

“I’ve heard it’s amazing and Vanessa Kirby is amazing, but at this point in pregnancy it could be a mistake. 

“We’ll see, let me know,” the star told fans.

Alex wrote alongside the clip: “Living the dream whilst the England game is on!!”


She added: “Pieces of Woman… anybody seen it??”

Alex then admitted her regrets over not reading messages from her followers before watching the film, as she found the first scenes “harrowing”.

She added in a separate post: “Should have read your messages before watching… that first part was one of the most intense/harrowing things I’ve ever seen!!”

After finishing the film, Alex admitted she was “in pieces” while praising The Crown star Vanessa for her performance.

She wrote alongside the movie’s poster: “In pieces myself but what a film and what a performance by @vanessa_kirby.”

Alex is already mum to two boys – Teddy, four, and two-year-old Kit – with husband Charlie.

The BBC host announced she was expecting her third baby, a girl, back in March.

The TV star recently said she and her husband were so overjoyed to be expecting again.

She told Closer: “It’s a huge gift. I suppose deep down I would never have said it because we were so lucky to have two lovely boys, but having a girl was always something that was there.

“I thought our time had passed and it wasn’t going to happen,” Alex shared.

“We both said how amazing three boys would be.

“Then when we opened the email which told us what sex the baby was, his little face was a picture,” Alex said.

The presenter added: “We both secretly thought it would be amazing if it was a girl. 

“It’ll be really interesting to see the different dynamics.”
