Alison Hammond returned to the This Morning studio today after weeks away.
The presenter has been hosting segments away from the studio due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have been the only presenters in there along with a limited number of crew members.
However, on Monday, Alison made her return and admitted she was thrilled to be back.
Walking out on set, the star was wearing a rainbow decorated hat which had two sticks attached to it so she could maintain social distancing.
At the start of the programme, Holly and Phil announced Alison’s return.
Holly said: “For the first time in 15 weeks, we’re finally allowed a guest in the studio so we invited the best, most entertaining woman we know.”
Phil added: “Sadly, Beyoncé wasn’t available so we’ve settled for Alison Hammond!”
Alison exclaimed: “Hi everyone! Keep your distance,” as she almost knocked everything off the shelves in the kitchen with her hat.
She said: “I’m here guys. Keep your distance babes!”
Holly admitted: “Alison this is really hard because you give the best hugs.
“Every instinct in my body is just wanting to give you a hug. I can’t believe you’re here.”
Alison said: “I’ve been really good guys, I’ve got my hair done.
“I wasn’t desperate. I actually enjoyed doing my own hair. It’s so weird coming into the studio and seeing you guys.”
Phil said: “It’s just been us and we haven’t been able to hug each other.”
Alison then suggested: “We’re going to have to really make a thing of when we can actually hug each other.
Alison this is really hard because you give the best hugs.
“That would be a show in itself, just do a hugging show.”
Holly said: “Yes! That’s a great idea.”
Alison told viewers she would be back later in the show to make cocktails to celebrate pubs reopening this weekend.
Now that's how to make an entrance after 15 long weeks away from the studio! 😘 @AlisonHammond
