This Morning fans confused as Alison Hammond appears to ‘break’ Covid rules

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Television star Alison Hammond caused a stir during the latest appearance on This Morning.

The 46-year-old presenter was back on our screens on Friday to host the latest edition of the ITV daytime show alongside co-host Dermot O'Leary.

They took part in a socially distanced rosé testing session towards the end of the show alongside a wine expert David in the studio.

The three of them stood two metres apart during the segment as per government guideline rules.

After trying around six different tipples, Dermot and Alison thanked the guest and the show went to an advert break.

However, just before the cameras stopped rolling, Alison appeared to walk passed the gentleman to get to another part of the studio.

Eagled-eyed viewers at home rushed to their keyboards as they stopped the former Big Brother housemate "breaking social distancing rules".

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "It's always when they think the camera isn't on them anymore that Alison and Dermot throw social distancing out of the window."

A second person posted: "Love the slip up social distancing off camera."

While a third social media user added: "Just caught #ThisMorning and social distance seems to have been thrown out haha."

"Don't touch the wine guy," another viewer added.

In further inspection, it appears that Alison did not touch the guest as she walked by him at a distance.

Elsewhere in the show, roving reporter Josie Gibson was smacked in the face by a stinging tree.

The 36-year-old star was on hand to try and make a lucky viewer £1,000 richer with the return of Dosh On Your Doorstep.

Hosts Dermot and Alison spoke to Josie multiple times to try and guess where she is.

However, things took an hilarious turn when Josie spoke to the presenters just before she revealed the name of her mystery location.

Josie, who was hiding behind a tree, pretended to creep around and ended up getting banged in the face by a stinging nettle.

Dermot and Alison gasped as they watched the mother of one try to get back on to her feet.

Big Brother 2010 champion Josie hilariously yelled: "Stinger in the ringer" as the conversation came to an end.

Ever the professional, Josie later appeared on the show live from the top of a tree.

I Can See Your Voice star Alison shouted: "Be careful Josie, you've already stung yourself" as she watched her pal on camera.

It was later revealed that Josie was in Weston-super-Mare.
