Ammanford Girl Named New One Show Presenter

Local politicians have congratulated Alex Jones on landing one of the biggest jobs in TV. Ammanford girl Alex has been named as the new host of the One Show replacing the departing Christine Bleakley. Rhodri Glyn Thomas AM and Jonathan Edwards MP, who was a year above Alex in school and university, say it is a fantastic achievement. The pair has written to Alex to offer their congratulations.

Jonathan Edwards MP said:

“This is fantastic news for Alex on a personal level. She has been a star in Wales for some time but to land one of the biggest roles in British TV is a huge achievement. It is also great news for the town locally. Many people will know Alex and I am sure there will be a lot of very proud people throughout Ammanford and the county upon hearing the news.”

Rhodri Glyn Thomas AM said:

“It is great for people in areas like Ammanford to have role models like Alex. Landing such a high profile position as the anchor of the One Show will no doubt inspire a great deal of others. Alex has been a great ambassador for Ammanford over the years with a portfolio of excellent work, especially through welsh language television. I wish Alex all the best in her new job and I am sure she will be a huge success.”
