Alison Hammond gives fans a backstage tour of This Morning studio that's NEVER seen on camera

ALISON Hammond has given This Morning fans a backstage tour of the studio as she prepared to go live on air on Tuesday morning.

The TV host – who fills in for Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield alongside Dermot O'Leary – filmed behind-the-scenes for her fans.


Alison, 47, took to Instagram with the clip as she prepared to "go live and pick up from Holly and Phil" during the show yesterday.

She panned her camera around the studio – which appeared much smaller than it does on our television screens at home.

The presenter revealed the screens to keep her in the loop of what fans see at home and teleprompter she reads off of in front of her.

Alison also revealed how different parts of the studio had been set up, with the cameras revolving round them on wheels in the middle.

Elsewhere, she revealed the dozens of lights strung from the ceiling to give the appearance of daylight in the indoor studio.

As well as the dozens of television screens behind her, which put out a live-feed of a camera elsewhere in London.

"Very good morning to you, it's me Alison Hammond," she told her following. "We are live on the floor at This Morning.

"I'm here basically if the lines go down with Phillip and Holly, because they're at Buckingham Palace today, it comes straight to me."

Sitting with a yellow show script in front of her, Alison revealed she was sat as a stand-in in case anything were to go wrong.

"They are live on television right now, and I'm live on this morning, and if anything goes wrong I'm here as the fallback," she continued.

"If anything goes wrong, I'm here to take the fall. I've got scripts and things that I can do. It becomes the Alison Hammond show."

She encouraged her cameraman to pan round the studio again, as Holly and Phil were seen presenting the show on a big screen.

It meant that Alison could watch along "live" and be ready to go should the live footage from the palace go wrong.

"I'm behind the scenes waiting to see if anything goes wrong, I might go and pull the plug so they come to me," she jokingly concluded.

It comes after fans theorised that Alison was left behind in the studio rather than taken to the palace due to her "risk of accident".

The former Big Brother star is famous for her often chaotic interviews and clumsy moments live on air.

Some fans took to Twitter to claim This Morning didn't want to risk an accident by sending Alisonto the Palace.
