    The Welsh beauty revealed how Steve, also 46, pinched her interview with the Hollywood sensation while she was working as an entertainment correspondent on the Channel 4 show Rise.

    She recalled: “Normally they would call in the morning and ask to come and do an interview or a junket.

    “I was staying in his flat at the time when I was working in London and he picked up the landline and said, ‘Al’s not here, she’s not feeling well, she had to go back to Cardiff’, I was in Topshop. So he did the interview.”

    Daily Star has reached out to Steve Jones’ representatives for a comment.

    The power could dated from 1999 to 2002 and later reunited to present Let’s Dance for Comic Relief, remaining close friends for the show.

    In 2003, Steve landed a presenting job on the weekend show T4 after the success of his interview with the Lara Croft star on the red carpet.

    He revealed at the time that he had split from Alex, with The One Show host previously revealing she had broke up with her partner over he betrayal, but has never named Steve as the culprit.

    Speaking on the podcast Thanks A Million with Angela Scalon, Alex explained: “So I got back to the flat and was like, ‘Where is he?’ Hours went past, nobody answering their phones and in the end thought, ‘Right, I'm going to drive back to Cardiff, because I don’t know where you are, you’ve probably gone to the pub’.

    “And then the production company called, and they were like, ‘We’ve got bit of a situation.

    "'Tomorrow morning your boyfriend is going to the premiere with Angelina Jolie and it would be really funny if you came on the line, live on the show and surprise him and said that you know exactly what he’s been up to.’

    “So again, I said’ yes’, so on live telly I'm like, ‘You lied to me, where have you been? So yeah, not surprisingly, we split up live on telly!’
