The One Show usually airs weeknights at 7pm on BBC One but tonight a schedule shake-up has meant viewers will not get their fix of the magazine show. As today is a national bank holiday, The One Show has been taken off air and replaced with the 2017 film Paddington 2.
Alex Jones is on hand every evening to discuss the topics of the day alongside a host of special guests and co-hosts.
The BBC show only airs on weeknights and the bank holiday Monday has been seen as an extension of the weekend schedule.
Last Friday, Alex wished viewers a lovely weekend and confirmed she would be back on the green sofa tomorrow.
The One Show has seen several presenters step in and co-host alongside Alex since Matt Baker announced his departure earlier this year.

“I’m so excited to get my headphones back on for BBC Radio Wales and to play some of my favourite songs,” Alex explained.
“There is something so special about radio,” she added.
“The connection you can have with the listeners and there’s something extra special about talking to people in Wales.”
Alex will be joined by guests husband and wife duo Rhod Gilbert and Sian Harries who will be discussing the podcast they created during lockdown.
Denise Van Outen will also join the Welsh presenter in the Sunday morning slot.
“Alex is one of the country’s best-loved presenters,” Editor of BBC Radio Wales Colin Paterson said.
“Her style and warmth makes her perfect for radio and I’m over the moon that she’s joining the line-up here at BBC Radio Wales.”
