This Morning: Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary return as viewers divided

Alison and Dermot are back together!

This Morning hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary returned to the show today and viewers were divided.

The duo opened Friday’s show celebrating after This Morning won Best Daytime Show at last night’s National Television Awards.

But as Alison and Dermot appeared on the screen, viewers had a very mixed reaction with some not wanting them to host.

Opening the programme, Alison told viewers: “As you know, we are quite subtle here at This Morning and we don’t like to brag.

“We’re just not like that. We’d just like to say a very polite thank you…”

However, after a brief pause, Alison exclaimed: “Screw that! We won an NTA! Yay! Thank you so much!” as confetti was shot into the air.

After Alison thanked the crew, presenters, experts and viewers, Dermot cracked a joke.

He said: “And most importantly, thank you from us because if we hadn’t won this year, the year we start, then we’d be in so much trouble!”

Alison replied: “I didn’t think about that!”
