    The One Show host Alex Jones branded herself a "bad mother" as she quizzed on her World Book Day efforts.

    The 45-year-old revealed she dressed her son up as the Big Friendly Giant, but when co-host Roman Kemp asked if she got involved, she admitted that she didn't dress up as a book character this morning.

    Alex candid shared the details of her early morning rush with her kids and ensured parents would "know the feeling."

    "I'm a bad mother," Alex confessed. "I didn't, but honestly it's such a lot of hard work as parents know to get him dressed as BFG, the little one as Cat Boy from PJ Mask, oh my goodness!"

    Roman seemed more interested in her creation of her son's BFG outfit, asking: "How did you do the ears?"

    "The BFG ears?" Alex asked before admitting: "I bought them, I'm a bad mother! I know, I know."

    Alex's confession comes after she had to endure a "horrible" wait in hospital after her son with husband Charlie Thompson, who she married in 2015, recovered after surgery.

    Updating her 343k Instagram followers, Alex posted a picture of an empty hospital bed with a Peter Rabbit and Spiderman toy in it and wrote: "Just waiting for little Kit to come back from surgery."

    "He's just having some grommets in his ears so nothing to worry about but horrible nonetheless," she concluded, followed by a breaking heart emoji.
