THE One Show’s Alex Jones issued a desperate plea to fans after she ‘struggled’ through presenting.
He said: “Erm, sounding a little bit ropey there Al, you okay? Your voice is a bit…”
Alex replied: “Better than I was. But you know, sponsored by pineapple juice.”
She then added: “Any home remedies, send them in, it’s the most frustrating thing!”
Supporting his pal, Jermaine said to viewers: “It is, come on, she’s pushing through, people. Help her out, send her in your remedies.”

Kind-hearted viewers of The One Show did as they were told and sent in suggestions, which the pair discussed later in the show.
Alex said: “Thank you so much for the sore throat remedies.”
She then turned to guests, Thor stars Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson and said: “I don’t normally speak like this ladies – you won’t know that!
“I’ve got a hoarse voice, I think I’ve got a bit of laryngitis, but I feel fine! Anyway, thank you.”

She then read out some suggestions, saying: “A toddy apparently, was invented in India. I thought… I don’t know.
“That’s whiskey, honey and cinnamon, that suits me, I’ll do a bit of that!”
She wasn’t as keen on one that Jermaine read out as he said: “Chopped onion and brown sugar in a bowl…drink the juice…sounds horrendous!”
Addressing the viewer, Alex said with a grimace: “Oh, Claire! I think I’d rather have this for a few weeks.”
The One Shows airs weeknights at 7pm but channels vary this week due to Wimbledon coverage.
