Alex Jones has revealed she's in hospital for "a bit of monitoring" ahead of the birth of her baby daughter.

The One Show host, 44, is expecting her third child with husband Charlie Thomson, after announcing she's pregnant in March this year.

Alex shared a snap of herself attached to a monitor while in a hospital bed on the night of Friday 20 August.

TV star Alex's photo sees her smiling while her husband leans in to take the picture, but half of his face is cut out.

Soon-to-be mum-of-three Alex shared the snap on her Instagram story and explained the image to fans by writing on top: "Just been brought in to have a bit of monitoring……Nothing exciting so far….."

Alex, who recently packed her hospital bag, is already a proud mum sons Edward, four, and Kit, two, whom she shares with husband Charlie.

Days before revealing she was in hospital, Alex shared a snap of herself cuddling her youngest son Kit on her Instagram page.

She told her fans in the caption: "Grabbing all the cuddles that I can. This little one has now idea how much his world is about to change", followed by a broken heart emoji.

She recently left The One Show to go on maternity leave as she prepared to give birth to her baby daughter, whom she previously admitted was "unexpected", earlier this month.

Alex broke down in tears on Friday 6 August as she announced the show would be her last for some time as she headed on maternity leave.

During the episode, she was shown a video that had been made by her fans, friends and family as they wished her luck and was sent well wishes from viewers.

The Welsh beauty was overcome with emotion and began to shed tears.
