In her hand she carried a quilted black bag, and accessorised further with chunky gold hooped earrings.

She wore a flawlessly applied layer of make up consisting of winged eyeliner and neutral lip colour.

The BBC sports pundit will appear on the programme Who Do You Think You Are? next week and discovers that her four times great grandfather Robert Francis Coombs was a slave owner. 

She is horrified by this news and quickly becomes emotional upon finding out. 

Alex goes on to find out that her ancestor kept two dozen people captive in his home in Jamaica. 

The episode, which airs next week, sees Alex shown records between 1817 and 1832 which showed that he owned slaves. 

She could hardly believe what she was hearing: ‘In my family line – this doesn’t sound right coming out of my mouth – but Robert Francis Coombs owned people?’ 

The historian guiding the sportswoman through this explained that it was not uncommon for people who had lighter skin were given preferential treatment in this way. 

Becoming tearful, Alex says: ‘In terms of explaining my emotion behind it, I suppose that goes against everything that I stand for, who I am. I was very aware we may be delving into the topic of slavery, but I really did believe I’d be learning about my family as slaves, not the other side, as the slave owners.’
