Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have been keeping This Morning viewers entertained throughout lockdown while adhering to social distancing regulations. The pair have been mostly alone in the studio for the last three months but after guidelines were eased, Alison Hammond rejoined the hosts in the studio to deliver a cocktail-making segment live.
Alison may not have been in the studio for the last few months but she’s still been popping up on the ITV show via video link.
Today she rejoined Holly and Phillip with a cocktail-making segment delivered behind her very own This Morning bar.
However, her return caused chaos for the ITV show as her presence forced the Spin To Win competition to come to a halt when Holly and Phillip realised she was sipping on a pint.
Alison was watching the presenters spin the competition wheel from the comfort of her specially designed bar at the other side of the studio.
Holly and Phillip kicked off today’s show by welcoming Alison back into the studio after months of interacting with her over video links.
Alison waltzed into the studio with a colourful decorated pole attached to her hat which could help the presenter keep a two metre distance from others.
After revealing how glad she was to be back in the studio, she took her position behind her specially made bar.
While waiting for her segment, Alison spent the morning sitting behind her bar watching the show.
Suddenly, the Spin To Win music came to a halt as the duo turned to look at Alison.
“I’m in a pub, I might as well use it,” she joked and Holly observed: “You had a pint and the music stopped.”
“Hold on, let’s gear this back up again,” Holly added as the music resumed and Phillip spun the wheel.
ITV viewers were pleased to see Alison back in the studio and took to Twitter to praise the presenter.
