This Morning blunder as Alison Hammond’s phone rings live on air


THIS Morning presenter Alison Hammond had everyone in stitches as her phone went off live on air.

The ITV star was on set waiting to do a cookery segment when the phone faux pas happened.

As Eamonn Holmes read from the autocue, Ruth Langsford started to crease up when a faint ringing sound could be heard.

Ruth explained giggling, “I’m just laughing because Alison’s phone has just gone off.”

“I’m so sorry guys, someone’s at my door. It’s a parcel. You don’t mind, do you? Just carry on as you were,” Alison joked, as she referred to the high-tech doorbell linked to her phone.

“What have you ordered?” Ruth asked. “I’m intrigued.”

“I don’t know! Don’t have the camera on me, what are you doing?!” as she continued to scroll through her phone, with the crew in stitches.

“I’ve turned if off!” Alison said.

The presenter had everyone in stitches as she fumbled to try and turn the phone off and stop the ringing, while Ruth cracked up, Eamon didn’t look too impressed by the rogue phone interruption.

Meanwhile, the good sport has claimed Celebs Go Dating producers tried to mtake her look like “a fat girl” by getting her to eat a hot dog on camera.

The 45-year-old star opened up about her glittering TV career in the new episode of Fleur East’s podcast The Reality of Reality TV.

Discussing behind-the-scenes secrets of filming the E4 dating show, the This Morning favourite told Fleur: “When I did Celebs Go Dating, do you know when they do the pre-titles and you do all the little bits to camera, I noticed the producer had some hot dogs on the side.

“I was doing my little blowing the kisses to camera, and I was wondering about it and then he bought a hot dog over and went: ‘Oh can you just eat a hot dog?’

“So then straight away I said: ‘What do I need to eat a hot dog for?’ when I realised, oh it’s the fat person eating.”

However, the mother-of-one insisted she doesn’t think badly of the show for the suggestion, explaining: “I totally get that producers are making a show that there needs to be entertainment and it needs to be funny and it needs to be fun and there need to be highs and lows.

“I’m seeing it more from a producer side of things now.

“I can kind of manipulate things in the sense that I know what they’re going to want.”
