Woman war on The One Show?

The One Show viewers might have gotten a little too attached to Angela Scanlon after she stood in for Alex Jones in the presenter duties.

In fact, some viewers even suggested that she replace Alex! Harsh.

With regular Matt Baker, the 32-year-old chatted away and introduced segments like a pro, which impressed many of the live magazine show’s loyal viewers. Which is good, considering she’s co-helming the Robot Wars reboot!

Alex Jones was away, preparing for the next day’s show, as the BBC explained in a tweet: ‘With @MissAlexjones on her way to Cornwall for tomorrow’s show, the fabulous @angelascanlon is presenting tonight.’


And viewers were pretty much in love with Angela’s talents.

One said: ‘Angela Scanlons voice is gorgeous #theoneshow Plus of course the added bonus of being extremely easy on the eye. Can’t wait for #RobotWars’

Whereas another bluntly added: ‘Angela is so much better than Alex’


One keen viewer had quite the proposal for her: ‘Oh my god. Is Angela Scanlon married? Does she want to marry me? It would be nice if we got married, I thinl. A really lovely time.’

Sorry Marc, she’s been married to eco-entrepreneur Roy Horgan since 2014.

It turns out that the Irish presenter has put her skills to good use before, since she was the one who broke that Katie Hopkins is most probably bisexual!

Yep, it turns out that the Demon Queen of Opinions told Angela Scanlon in her Close Encounters series that: ‘I’d swing both ways – given the freedom to do that,’ before adding: ‘I’ve never been offered.’

We love Alex Jones and don’t want her to be replaced, but commendations to Angela for her sacrifices in the name of journalism.
