Born in Carmarthenshire, West Wales, Alex was educated at a Welsh speaking school although English was her first language at home, and her bilingual skills have held her in good stead for her career as a television presenter. She was a staple of Welsh language programmes on BBC and S4C before taking on the move to BBC One's prime time weekday programme, The ONE Show, replacing former Strictly contestant, Christine Bleakey, as co-host to comedian Jason Manford. Her career has gone from strength to strength, including co-presenting Let's Dance for Comic Relief in 2011, and she was also a member of the team covering the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Alex will be dancing in the ninth series of Strictly Come Dancing and will be dancing with series eight finalist, James Jordan.
