The One Show: Ronan Keating forced to apologise to Jane McDonald

Jane McDonald joined presenters Ronan Keating and Alex Jones on The One Show in January 2023, but things got a little awkward when Ronan Keating was forced to apologise to Jane after Alex made some comments about Jane’s experience on a zip wire.

The show aired a clip of Jane on a massive zip-wire which takes visitors across Las Vegas sights at a high speed and height.

But after watching the clip, Alex said: “So this is you on a zip wire. Does this go all the way through Vegas?”

Jane replied and said: “Yes, it goes through this massive mall, which is the old Strip.”

But it all got a bit awkward when Alex said: “But it looks like it’s going quite slow to be fair.”

Jane instantly replied: “No it’s not. It’s going quite fast! Just thought I’d get that in.”

Ronan laughed it off and added in a “sorry about that” for Jane.

Jane cheekily added: “See my hair flowing behind me, that’s because it’s going quite fast!”

Alex joked along and agreed: “Fair enough!”
