But it wasn’t long before viewers spotted something about the way Alison says her co-star’s name.
What did Alison Hammond say on This Morning?
During the show’s Spin to Win segment, Alison and Dermot spoke with a caller who was hoping to win some cash.
Alison said: “Do you want a big spin or a little spin from Dermot?”

Meanwhile, viewers delivered their verdict on Alison and Dermot taking over from Ruth and Eamonn.
At the start of the show, Alison told viewers: “Hello and welcome to your Friday This Morning!”
Some fans begged ITV to bring back Eamonn and Ruth on Twitter.
One person said on Twitter: “Bring back Eamonn and Ruth.”
Another added: “Guess who’s not watching #ThisMorning today! Me! Just isn’t the same without Eamonn and Ruth!”
Viewers love Alison and Dermot
However, many viewers loved having Alison and Dermot on their screens.
One tweeted: “Alison and Dermot… YAY. If only Phil and Holly could leave for good!”
In addition, another gushed: “Loving Alison and Dermot on #thismorning already, so refreshing.”
Last year, ITV announced the pair would be replacing the husband and wife duo after 15 years.
At the time, Alison said in a statement: “I never dreamt that when I first joined This Morning – initially for a few months – that I would still be there 19 years later.
