Alex Jones tearfully pays tribute to a colleague who has died

Alex Jones paid an emotional tribute to a colleague on The One Show, who has died. The BBC presenter fought back tears as she read out a moving tribute to team member Charlie Mott, who passed away at the weekend. Charlie worked on the programme as a senior researcher, and also as an assistant producer with the channel. The cause of his death has not been disclosed publicly. Alex, 43, said that the team was “absolutely devastated” by his death, and commended him as a “huge talent” and “such good company”. Speaking fondly of her colleague at the end of Monday’s episode, Alex also sent love and thoughts to Charlie’s family from everyone on the programme.

She said: “Now, before we go we just want to pay tribute to one of our colleagues, Charlie Mott, who sadly died at the weekend. “Everyone on the team is absolutely devastated, he was a huge talent and such good company. “We miss him so much. Our thoughts are with his family and we are sending lots of love from all of us here. Goodnight.” As the programme ended, rather than the usual theme music, it instead remained silent out of respect. The One Show’s Twitter page also marked the sad news following Alex’s announcement. A post featured a video of Alex’s announcement and read: “’We’ll miss him so much.’ “@MissAlexjones pays tribute to one of our colleagues, Charlie Mott, who sadly died at the weekend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.” The One Show airs weekdays from 6pm on BBC.
