Alison Hammond laughed off the comment

ITV viewers were left in hysterics as Dermot O’Leary swore on This Morning today.

At the start of Friday’s show, the presenter was discussing people going on strike from their household chores when he dropped the s-bomb.

He said: “I’m good on a dishwasher, I’m very exact. Dee [his wife], who’s got a far more analytical mind than me, I open it sometimes and I’m like, ‘Have you literally just thrown that in?’

“Everything’s upturned, it’s a nightmare!”

Dermot then added: “[Expletive], I’m going to get killed for that.”
