This Morning's Alison Hammond marches guest off set of ITV show after she steals her thunder
Alison Hammond jokingly marched a This Morning guest off the set off the show on Friday after they jumped at the chance to read a link live on air.
At the end of another week for the award-winning ITV daytime programme, former Big Brother star Alison was back at the helm along with Friday presenting partner in crime Dermot O'Leary. And, while there was plenty of talk about Eurovision, with a star turn from the UK's last winner, Katrina and a guide to throwing the ultimate Eurovision party, the hosting duo were joined by other guests during the two and a half hour live broadcast.
And one of those people was Jessica Gagen, who has bounced back from being tormented by bullies at school to being a model who has her face on huge billboards across the country. Jessica, 26, from Skelmersdale, Lancashire is hotly tipped to be the first ever redheaded contestant to win the coveted Miss England title and joined Alison and Dermot to offer advice to anyone else who might be in a similar situation to the one she faced when she was younger.
Jessica opened up to the This Morning presenters about just how bad things got for her, explaining how she'd be punched, spat at and even burned by cruel classmates, just for for having red hair. Many viewers at home hailed Jessica as an inspiration after getting the best revenge possible by being a strong, confident and successful young woman.
Alison and Dermot were also full of admiration for her, so much so that Alison gave her a shot at presenting a live competition link. But, after Jessica excelled at the task, Alison put on a mock disdain for her studio guest and got off her seat before ushering Jessica away from the set, saying: "Get this woman out of here! Come on, get her out," as Jessica started laughing.
