The One Show star Alex Jones pays tribute after death of 'hugely talented' colleague

August 25, 2020

The One Show presenter Alex Jones has paid tribute to a "hugely talented" colleague following his death at the weekend.

The TV presenter said the programme's team is "absolutely devastated" at the loss of Charlie Mott, a researcher on the series.

Speaking at the end of Monday's show, Jones said: "Now, before we go, we just wanted to pay tribute to one of our colleagues Charlie Mott, who sadly died at the weekend.

"Everybody on the team is absolutely devastated. He was hugely talented and such good company. We miss him so much.

"Our thoughts are with his family and we are sending lots of love from all of us here. Goodnight."

In place of the show's usually upbeat music, the closing credits were displayed in silence.

No further details were given.

Show reporter Kevin Duala was among those who paid tribute on social media, sharing a smiling selfie alongside crew members including Mr Mott from a week ago.

"A lovely man, great professional always smiling on location with the world at his feet. My condolences go to all the family," he said.

Olympic runner Iwan Thomas and astronaut Tim Peake also paid tribute, with Thomas saying Mr Mott was "one of the nicest people I have met in this industry".

Peake described him as "a wonderful, friendly guy, a real pro and a pleasure to work with".
