Presenter Alex Jones was ridiculed on the latest episode of The One Show after producers decided to showcase a string of her blunders live on air.

As the show kicked off, co-host Jermaine Jenas couldn't wait to highlight the fact that Alex often got celebrity names wrong while interviewing them.

Starting off the conversation, while talking to actress Bel Powley in the studio, the star talked about working with Jennifer Aniston and how she feared she would accidentally call her Rachel- a character she played for many years in sitcom Friends.

But Jermain reminded everyone that Alex often has the same problem, by showing previous footage where the presenter messed up on several occasions.

After her montage of errors was show, a red-faced Alex said: "Oh my goodness, I'm so going to get fired."

But she also put her mistakes down to her age.

Actor Max Beesley who was also on the sofa alongside Bel admitted that he had made a similar mistake in the past when he accidentally called Jack Duckworth actor Bill Tarmey by his Coronation Street's character name.

Later on in the programme, the blunders seemed to keep on coming for Alex.

While having a look at the new BBC News studio with presenter Huw Edwards, Alex almost fell off her chair.

As she made her way to the new studio, Alex chimed "I am here everybody."

"Hello Huw," she said before almost falling off her chair and shrieking in shock. "Ohhh, sorry! Sorry! Oh gosh!"

But Huw certainly saw the funny side to it all and burst out laughing as he warned Alex: "Can I just tell you that's not going to happen to any of my guests at 10."

Alex joked: "What do you mean? I'm your new co-host."

Huw then said: "You are the first guest and you've come in with a bit of a splash I'd say but this is all about being modern.

"It's all about making a better programme and all about telling stories in a different way and we've got lots of things in this studio I want to show you, which will prove it's not as simple as some people think it is."
