The One Show's Gethin Jones may have been back by popular demand on Monday, but Alex Jones may not be welcoming her guest co-host back again any time soon after the presenter managed to put his foot in it during tonight's episode.
The Celebrity MasterChef 2020 contestant joined Alex on the sofa again last night (17 August) as The One Show kicked off a new week of programmes, but Gethin ended up making a huge error about Alex's time on Strictly Come Dancing as the pair were wrapping up a chat with guest Gloria Estefan.
"We love the conga, we've been dancing all day today," Gethin began. "Alex did the English version of Dancing with the Stars. She came 11th and she did a brilliant samba on that show."
"Excuse me," Alex interrupted. "[I finished] fourth."
"Oh, was it fourth?" a mortified Gethin replied, as Gloria Estefan laughed nervously over the video link and Gethin looked nervously at the camera.
"We'll move on," Alex added.
Gethin may have royally messed up his co-host's Strictly finishing position, but he actually wasn't too far off the mark as Alex Jones and her partner James Jordan were ultimately eliminated in the 11th week of the competition, so maybe that's what he meant.
Alex took part in the ninth series of the show back in 2011 and was eliminated alongside Holly Valance during the semi-final. Although, considering Holly had the higher score on the night, Alex technically finished in fifth place, not fourth. (Sorry, Alex!)
It's actually not the first time Gethin has insulted Alex live on-air, as back in June he poked fun at the TV presenter's apparently "patchy" fake tan.
Earlier in the year, Alex Jones also proved once again why she shouldn't be messed with after she 'fired' co-host Michael Ball for suggesting that The One Show puts viewers to sleep.
The One Show airs Mondays through Fridays at 7pm on BBC One. Strictly Come Dancing is expected to return for an all-new series later this year on BBC One.
