THE ONE SHOW returned yesterday evening but this time Alex Jones and Michael Ball were fronting the show on BBC2. The duo had plenty of topics to address on the show, including a special film from the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry.
With Prime Minister Boris Johnson answering questions on BBC One’s Coronavirus: BBC News Special at 7pm, it meant Alex Jones and Michael Ball had to bring The One Show fans their daily dose of the magazine show on BBC Two. The pair were joined by Paul McKenna and Romesh Ranganathan but it was a special VE Day film from Prince Harry which had the hosts talking.
Michael introduced Prince Harry’s special segment onto the show as he said: “Prince Harry met two military support groups offering help to heroes.”
The Duke of Sussex then heard from members of two separate support groups as they explained just how much the groups meant to them.
As the heartwarming segment drew to a close, Prince Harry said: “Those individuals that signed up,
“Chose to serve, then have life-changing injuries – they didn’t stop there.”
He added: “That’s why it’s incredibly impressive but yet at the same time so incredibly uplifting.”
Alex then said: “Thanks so much Prince Harry for that. He does make quite a promising One Show reporter don’t you think?”
Michael joked he was left feeling slightly disappointed with the Duke’s appearance, however.
He replied: “Didn’t get to see enough of the house though, did we?”
Alex jokingly screwed her face as she shook her head in agreement before he co-host continued: “You love doing that, don’t you?”

The pair shared a laugh before the duo turned to Paul McKenna to discuss his new podcast.
The Duke of Sussex’s appearance on the show had already sparked excitement with viewers when it was confirmed on Twitter before he’d even appeared.
The BBC show’s official Twitter account published: “Have you heard the news?
“Tonight’s #TheOneShow will be on @BBCTwo at 7pm! @MissAlexjones will be on the sofas with @mrmichaelball and they’ll be chatting to @RomeshRanga (and) @ImPaulMcKenna.
“Plus we’ll also be showing a very special film featuring The Duke of Sussex!”
