Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Alex Jones revealed she has "beef" with the DVLA – after the agency have taken "forever" to renew her driving licence.

The presenter, 44, was left fuming with the driving agency as she presented The One Show on Wednesday night, and she didn't hold back when she spoke out about her troubles with them on air.

"Tell me Matt, what is going on with the DVLA?" she asked.

Her co-star Matt Allwright, 51, replied: "I'm sensing you have some beef [with the DVLA]," which prompted Alex's co-star Jermaine to start laughing on the sofa.

Alex then admitted: "Well a little bit," before going into a rather fiery rant about the driving organisation.

She ranted: "I'm trying to renew my licence. It's taken forever and every day I check the mat by the front door and every day there is no new licence!"

Matt then said that whilst he's "sensing" Alex's "frustration" she's certainly not alone as plenty of people up and down the country are facing similar delays.

Explaining the situation with the DVLA, who dish out driving licences, Matt branded the segment the 'DV Delay' – a title which Alex declared was "very good".

He told a story about a viewer called Brian, 71, who was also facing major delays like Alex – after he has been left waiting nine weeks for a renewed licence and was worried he wouldn't be able to drive his grandchildren around as he looks after them.

Matt continued: "We have heard of lots of people with similar experiences but the good news is we have spoken to the DVLA."

"They say if you're renewing your licence you can in most cases – Alex Jones – continue driving whilst they are processing it even if it's expired as long as you have been told by your doctor or optician that you shouldn't drive".
