The One Show presenter Alex Jones, 44, hit back at comedian Rosie Jones, 30, following a jibe she made about the former’s native country of Wales. Speaking about her new show Trip Hazard: My Great British Adventure, Rosie said her excitement died down when she found out she was visiting the country instead of somewhere more exotic.

Rosie, don’t knock it

Speaking about her new travel show Trip Hazard, Rosie reminisced about the moment she received the good news about the series.

She said to presenters Alex and Amol Rajan: “And when I got it, I thought, ‘Yes!'” shouted the comedian, throwing her arms in the air in joy.

Rosie continued: “Where are we going? Mexico? The Caribbean? No… Wales!”

But Alex quickly jumped in and quipped: “Rosie, don’t knock it.”

But the comedian continued to reveal that she had been wrong in her first impressions of the country.

Rosie went on to say that she had the best time filming in Wales.

She continued: “But actually I had the best time ever because the country is incredible and beautiful and full of the best people.

“So actually, why would you ever want to go anywhere else?”

Last year the stand-up comedian spoke about incorporating her cerebral palsy condition into her comedic style.

The star said she rarely felt sad about growing up with the condition and even counted herself “lucky” her condition wasn’t worse.

Speaking on a new BBC podcast, Duvet Days, Rosie spoke about the importance of being the role model she never had.

“Growing up, I think I always knew I was different. I just knew I had it, but my mum and dad were always great, and it was always a thing I had but a thing that wasn’t bad.

It was just saying like, I have brown hair, I have brown eyes, and I’ve got cerebral palsy.

“It was part of me, and I never remember ever feeling sad about it. I just got on with it.

Rosie continued: “It’s easy to think, ‘Oh I could be able-bodied’, but throughout my life I always thought, ‘Yeah but I could also be even more disabled.

“So, I just felt lucky. I always thought about what I could do, rather than what I couldn’t do.”

In her new series the comedian takes her celebrity friends on an adventure around the country.

Narrated by The Crown’s Olivia Coleman, the programme follows the comedian around the Lake District, Whiteby, Anglesey and Norwich.

In the show Rosie has run-ins with a Channel 4 commissioner – played by Rachel Stubbings – but is determined to make each place she visits special but interacting with enthusiastic locals.

Trip Hazard: My Great British Adventure is on Friday at 8.30pm on Channel 4.
