The One Show star Alex Jones recently landed her first pre-TV job.

The TV star was in conversation with Dragons Den star Deborah Meaden when her pre-TV career was discussed…

Pre-TV careers discussed

Earlier this month, Alex saw Deborah interviewing on The One Show.

During her chat with Deborah, the Welsh star was quizzed about what jobs she did before landing her TV gig.

Deborah herself admitted that she worked with horses as a child.

“My first job was leading pony rides along the coast. I didn’t get paid anything. I think I was paid in pennies,” she said.

“But I got to ride the ponies again!”

What did Alex Jones do before her The One Show days?

Deborah then turned to Alex and asked her what she did for money before television.

Alex replied that she worked in a department store, but Deborah didn’t answer that.

“Be honest! You dressed up – I’ve heard this before,” she said.

Alex relented and replied, “Yes. I was dressed as a dolphin and advertised dolphin-friendly tuna.”

Deborah was delighted that she had ‘outed’ Alex, to which the 47-year-old sarcastically replied: ‘Thanks Deborah!’.

Earlier this month, Alex had an embarrassing moment when he met Queen Camilla at a garden party at Buckingham Palace.

Alex spoke about the incident on Instagram. She uploaded several photos of herself and husband Charlie Thomson at the event.

“What an honor to be invited to Buckingham Palace for a garden party yesterday afternoon,” she captioned the post.

“I was so nervous about meeting Her Majesty The Queen and @romankemp will confirm how I had to admit to the Queen that my bag was stuck to my dress and I hadn’t had time to unbutton it before meeting her she continued.

“It still feels so surreal and special to attend these types of events.”
