ALISON Hammond ‘cheated’ on Spin To Win as she ‘picked’ a £1000 ball for a This Morning caller who screamed out ‘”I love you Alison!”
The presenter, 46, couldn’t resist to give the caller a helping hand in the hilarious segment from today’s show.
Dermot looked on at Alison’s brazen moves
Dermot O’Leary laughed as Alison gave a fan a helping hand during the Spin to Win competition today.
Alison, who looked flawless in a bright yellow floorlength jacket and matching headband, smiled as she heard the caller’s declaration of love.
The former Big Brother star then just so happened to pick out the £1,000 ball after the caller screamed out “I Love You.”
The show has recorded great ratings since Alison and Dermot took over from Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford this year.

It just so happened she picked the £1,000 ball when the caller shouted out ‘I love you.’
Their ratings are 44 per cent higher than their predecessors, with viewers branding Alison the programme’s “best ever host.”
The presenters’ debut show Friday 8 January drew in 1.41million viewers, 200,000 more than tuned in for Eamonn and Ruth’s final episode in December.
That’s a whopping 44 per cent increase and 21 per cent of the audience share.
Ruth and Eamonn did not sign off with a whimper, managing to bag 23 per cent of the audience for their final shows.
It was a successful start for the new pairing, with viewers branding Alison the programme’s “best ever host”.
Eamonn and Ruth were replaced this year
Meanwhile Alison’s pal Kate Lawler revealed she went into labour after laughing hysterically about Alison who sent her a babygro saying “Best Daddy.”
The Virgin Radio host, 40, welcomed her first child Noa 11 days early on February 11, just hours after joking about Alison’s hilarious blunder.
Kate and This Morning host Alison became great mates after starring in Big Brother series 3 together with the late Jade Goody, where Kate went on to win the show in 2002.
The duo have remained close ever since, and in an exclusive interview with The Sun ahead of her reality TV show Celebrity Bumps: Famous and Pregnant, Kate talked about Alison’s gift.

She said:” Yes she bought me a babygro. She told me she was sending me a present and she said ‘I hope you like it, it’s for you’.
“But it said, ‘You’re going to be the best daddy,’ instead of ‘You’re going to be the best mummy’ on it.”
Kate added: “She admitted that she’s not very good at ordering shopping. But the sentiment was nice. At least the baby can wear it and Boj can hold the baby.”
