This Morning viewers were left gobsmacked when two unexpected guests arrived in the studio. Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary were reunited for the last edition of the ITV daytime show of the week.
Alison, 47, hosted the show earlier this week, on Bank Holiday Monday, while Dermot, 48, took the day off. Instead, Craig Doyle stepped in for his hosting debut on the popular show and fans had a lot to say about his appearance. Alison and Craig also showed their love for each other off-screen by exchanging sweet messages over Instagram.
But Dermot was back in his usual place today (Friday) and the pair got stuck into their latest stint on the show. Two of their guest today were BBC Radio 1’s Jordan North and ettiquite coach William Hanson, who co-host the podcast Help I Sexted My Boss together. They were chatting to the hosts about taking their show on tour as well as William’s stag do plans.

And as they got onto the topic of his upcoming nuptials, Alison reminded William that during a previous appearance on the show he shared his complete dislike for stag dos but that isn’t something Jordan wasn’t going to let him get away with so is still forging ahead with planning one for him.
But the show also had a surprise for William and suddenly two butlers began in the buff making their way through the studio doors. Jordan burst out laughing and started clapping as his co-star looked mortified by what was happening. As the two men made their way towards the famous sofa, it appeared they were simply just topless.
A camera angle, however, proved otherwise when the pair were also shown to be completely starkers, their underneath butler aprons and flashed the camera as it panned to give a fuller view of the hosts and guests on the sofa. Jordan was then seen recoiling in shock, turning to Alison and Dermot saying: “They’re actually in the buff,” while putting his hands to his mouth.
William didn’t appear amused as Alison opened the box that had been delivered to him, full of party bits including a balloon, oversized glasses and a pink wig to get in the stag do mood. As Alison and Jordan got stuck in, Dermot sat back and laughed, admitting: “[That’s] my idea of hell.”
The groom eventually found his voice, telling Jordan that it meant he now didn’t have to go to Dublin for his proper stag and he was then presented with a video message from his husband-to-be while dressed in the pink wig and comedy glasses.
But This Morning viewers were soon taking to social media to share their shock. @SeanZz97 tweeted: “What am I watching and cringing at?? #ThisMorning.”

“I wasn’t expecting to see a male model with a bare a**e until my appointment this afternoon. #ThisMorning,” @YTVChase said while @bbettiekaren asked: “What the hell is going on on #ThisMorning? Looks like absolute chaos. Lmaoooo they’re all drinking, there’s butlers in the buff and queen Alison is just living her best life. Is it always like this? Lol.”
