Reunion Hotel is a brand new show commissioned by BBC Two and BBC Wales, that will facilitate emotional reunions against the backdrop of a stunning hotel in North Wales, hosted by The One Show's Alex Jones.

Each episode will feature poignant and heartwarming stories where guests will reconnect and share the things they never got to say, with someone from their past; "From giving thanks to life saving heroes, romantic reunions and emotional homecomings, to the ex-pupil reunited with the teacher who changed his life, everyone’s welcome to check-in to the Reunion Hotel."

Alex spoke of her excitement in the press release, saying: "To be able to play an integral part in the reunion of lost friendships, family members and past loves is very exciting. I’m so looking forward to checking into the hotel to help bring these heart-warming stories to life, and helping the guests reconnect with a piece of their lives they thought had been lost."
