Alex Jones 'loses it' when she interviews hunky stars

Alex Jones "loses it" when she has to interview hunky stars.

The 'One Show' presenter insists she never gets starstruck by the famous guests on the programme, but she does feel flustered if they are particularly attractive.

She said: "I've never been overawed by famous people.

"But I do lose it sometimes, usually when there's a good-looking man involved. And that's not because they're famous - it's because they are fit."

The Welsh star - who is engaged to Charlie Thompson - was particularly impressed by the "perfect" David Beckham.

She gushed: "We did a show in Cornwall with David Beckham when the Olympic torch arrived. He was perfect.

"He had a lovely navy suit on and, honestly, he just smells incredible - cleaner than any man I've ever met, ever.

"I thought the catch with him is that he'd be short, but nope, he's really tall too. He's got it all."

And the 38-year-old presenter was so "mortified" by her on-screen encounter with Gerard Butler, that she had to walk off set because co-host Chris Evans suggested the actor ask her out.

She told heat magazine: "Chris suggested that Gerard Butler should take me out for a drink - live on air.

"I was so mortified that I had to leave the set. I just walked off, because I was dying. And the thing is, Gerard was actually up for going for a drink after! My fiance Charlie was in the building, joking, 'I'm going to kill him.' "
