The presenter announced she would be guest editing Friday’s episode (October 23) and deciding the running of the programme.
Opening the show, Alison was surrounded by cushions with her face and famous catchphrases on them.
Alison Hammond takes over This Morning!
Meanwhile, the crew all sported t-shirts with ‘Team Alison’ printed across them.
She said: “Yes you heard it correctly… today’s This Morning is going to be a bit different because I am the boss everybody!” as the crew cheered.
Alison continued: “But don’t worry, I’m not one of those people who lets it go to my head.
“I have changed a few things but I’ve kept it nice and subtle. I’ve got cushions… it’s very charming. It’s a bit like myself.. charming, subtle, beautiful.”
She said: “Obviously I am the editor today so I’m making myself the star of the show.”
Dermot then jokingly booed as he joined Alison on the sofa.
Alison Hammond is a ray of sunshine on this dull dreary Friday.
He said: “How did this happen?!” to which Alison asked: “Are you excited Dermot?”
Dermot admitted: “Kinda… what should I be expecting?”
Alison joked: “Well, there’s a little bit for me and there’s a teeny bit for you.”
To kick off the show, viewers were treated to a live theatre performance.
Meanwhile, the programme also featured a makeup segment for black skin and a fashion item for men.
The pair also spoke to singer Rick Astley and Gavin & Stacey star Rob Brydon.

However, some people weren’t too keen on the energetic performance at the start of the show.
One person said: “God it’s far too early in the morning for this.”
Another added: “Please not this type of singing at this time of the morning. It’s so painful.”
