The BBC has denied that The One Show
producers are auditioning female presenters to replace Alex Jones
Jones has appeared as the main female host since August last year when she replaced Christine Bleakley
It was claimed that the BBC is holding auditions due to poor ratings compared to this time last year. Producers were also said to be concerned about the lack of chemistry between Jones and co-host Matt Baker, who joined the show in January
presenter Amanda Byram was named as a possible replacement, who screen-tested for the show before losing out to Jones.
However, a BBC spokesperson has told Digital Spy
that the story is "categorically not true", adding: "There is no question of The One Show
wanting to replace Alex."
Alex Jones is rumoured to have signed up for this year's Strictly Come Dancing
