Alex has tended to keep her relationships out of the public eye and is thought to currently be single.

However, speaking back in March, she admitted she’d recently joined a dating app.

Although, the presenter was quick to add: “But I haven’t actually dared go on it.

“I am completely hopeless, but every time I think about it, it just doesn’t seem natural to me, so absolutely nothing has happened.

  • Alex Scott praised for ‘fantastic’ Euros coverage ‘Stand out pundit!’

“But who knows what the future will bring?

“All I know is that I’m ready to take on the next challenge – whatever it is.”

The star was linked to Coronation Street’s Sam Robertson earlier in the year.

The couple were spotted dining out in London’s Soho.

However, Alex admitted it didn’t go anywhere, as she continued to The Sun’s Fabulous magazine.

She explained: “And I never seem to have a lot of luck on dates.

“My one date in ages was going out with Sam, who is lovely.

“The next morning, our pictures were all over the press because someone in the restaurant had taken a photo. It wasn’t exactly a great start!”

However, she did open up to fellow Strictly Come Dancing star Michelle Visage in 2020 about her single status.

She said during an online chat: “After watching Normal People I’ve realised I’ve been single for a while now.

“I need to make more of an effort because I’m ready to have someone in my life.”

Elsewhere, Alex has headed to Tokyo to begin coverage of the Olympics.

However, she made a blunder when she appeared on television recently to show off their new studio.

During one segment, she referred to Team GB as Team England in the coverage.

Alex later took to social media to apologise for her error.

She penned to her 333,000 followers on Twitter: “Nearly got through the whole show without doing it once and then I bl**dy let myself down #doh.

“My bad my bad… slip of the tounge #sorry.” (sic)

The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 takes place from today to August 8 and will be available to watch on BBC TV, BBC iPlayer, radio and online.
