This Morning: Alison Hammond mortified over awkward comment about Graham Norton’s dead dog

Graham took the comment lightheartedly!

This Morning host Alison Hammond looked horrified as she made a comment about Graham Norton’s late dog.

The presenter was interviewing Graham on Friday’s show alongside her new co-star Dermot O’Leary.

One of the first questions from Alison was whether Graham still has his dog, which he had to confirm his pooch was no longer alive.

Graham replied: “Uh no… dead.”

Dermot put his face in his hands and awkwardly laughed as Alison – looking a bit embarrassed – said: “Oh, I’m gutted, I’m so sorry, I’m absolutely devastated.”

Dermot said: “As soon as you asked the question I thought, ‘well this is going to go one way or another.'”

Graham told Alison: “Sorry I’m being horrible to you.”

Viewers were left in hysterics at Alison’s poor blunder on Twitter.

One person said: “@AlisonHammond brightens up my day!! ‘Have u still got your dog?’ ‘No….dead.’ ‘Oh I’m so sorry.'”

Another wrote: “Alison: ‘The last time I saw you you were walking your beautiful dog. Have you still got her?’

“Graham Norton: ‘No. Dead!’ Alison and Dermot are perfect additions to the show.”

One added: “I spat out my tea!”

Another death blunder

Meanwhile, later in the show, chef Clodagh McKenna accidentally made a comment about Dermot’s late Gran.

Making Irish stew, Clodagh and Dermot were discussing their families living in Ireland.

Clodagh said: “Your Gran is going to be watching… Is your Gran in Ireland?”

Dermot replied: “Hmm, in heaven…” to which Clodagh said: “Oh in heaven,” as she awkwardly laughed.
