For one week only. Covering for Alex Lester week 25th February. I think she covered for Chris Evans in 2012 if I'm correct?

Alex who? Had to check who she was and I'm reminded that she co-presents The One Show in which she and Evans insist on SHOUTING a lot.

Only on Fridays. It's not nearly so bad on Mondays-Thursdays, when Matt Baker (he of Countryfile) accompanies Alex instead of the aforementioned annoying berk. The reason why I avoid the Friday edition of The One Show. I can't imagine Alex Jones being a shouter, she certainly isn't on the Mon-Thurs editions. I might have to 'listen Again' one day that week. I don't remember Alex Jones being on Radio 2 last year, but I'll stand corrected if I am wrong.

Indeed, I don't think Alex Jones is a shouter. She seems very professional to me, though she may have to speak up a bit on Fridays for obvious reasons.

She appears more confident Mon-Thurs when she's with Matt Baker. And when she can actually share the limelight.

Alex Jones is covering for Alex Lester
Alex Jones works on The One Show
Chris Evans presents The One Show with her on Fridays.
Thread turns into sniping at Chris Evans.
I'm surprised.

Alex in for Alex. Cool beans. You can make a third person from their surnames. Lester Jones, sounds like someone in his mid 40s, unmarried, who'd drive a Range Rover or perhaps a large Volvo, runs a small antique shop in Hove, very posh accent, has a charming way with women, but isn't interested in them, often wears a waistcoat and has a boyfriend called Justin who is in his early 20s.
