This Morning Rep Dismisses Reports Of Off-Screen ‘Tension’ Between Alison Hammond And Dermot O’Leary

This Morning bosses have dismissed reports of off-screen tension between hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.

Alison and Dermot took over from Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes as Friday presenters of the ITV daytime show in 2020.

On Saturday, the on-screen duo were the focus of reports in the Daily Mail, which claimed their differences meant they had trouble understanding each other behind the scenes.

The news outlet quoted an alleged “source” as speaking of “squabbling on set and awkward tension off the air” between the two stars.

However, a spokesman for This Morning has insisted they have formed a strong bond after two years of working together on screen.

“Despite the challenges of starting their on-screen partnership during a pandemic, Alison and Dermot have developed a strong friendship and their chemistry has proven to be a hit with ratings,” a spokesman told HuffPost UK.

“Since the end of the pandemic, the two can look forward to socializing after the show and have also enjoyed spending time with each other’s families.”

Alison and Dermot first met 20 years ago after her time as a roommate at Big Brother came to an end while he was presenting the spin-off show Big Brother’s Little Brother.

Before being named a permanent This Morning duo, the pair had guest-hosted a handful of live episodes together.

Alison was already a well-loved member of the This Morning family by this point, and was gaining a loyal following thanks to her irreverent A-list interviews with A-list stars like Harrison Ford, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Beyoncé.

Dermot’s previous credits include The X Factor and the National Television Awards, as well as his own long-running BBC Radio 2 slot.
