Another wrote: “Does Alison emphasise the MOT in Dermot on purpose? Because it really annoys me.”

Speaking to The Sun, Dermot said: “We both did something that the other didn’t like – nothing major.

“But after it happened we looked at each other, and I said: ‘You didn’t like it when I did that, did you?’ And she said no, she didn’t. And I said: ‘OK, well I didn’t like it when you did that thing.’

“We both laughed, because now we knew. The most important thing is to find out what annoys the other and make sure you don’t do it again. If you’re doing live telly with someone you don’t trust, it doesn’t work.”

Dermot added that he now sees Alison “like a sister”.
