Alison Hammond makes tricky blunder during interview with Charlie Brooks

Alison Hammond returned to presenting This Morning after the summer break on Wednesday, with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford hosting the show for six weeks.

The 46-year-old TV host co-hosted the day alongside Rochelle Humes and made an awkward gaffe while interviewing actress Charlie Brooks.

The soap star will return to her role as Janine Butcher on EastEnders next week, but Alison seemed to think the ongoing series itself was returning from a hiatus.

During the interview, Alison said, ‘EastEnders, when is it back? When is it back Roch? Tell us when it’s back, Charlie.’

Rochelle corrected the blunder and said, ‘Well, we can see Janine next week, that’s where we see Janine’s entrance back on the soap. I’m really looking forward to it.

“Thanks, nice to see you,” Charlie replied.

Some fans took to Twitter to comment on the accident, with one writing: “Alison is clearly not an avid fan.”

Another wrote: ‘Alison when is it back, it never went away’, while another added jokingly: ‘It came back last September Alison’.

During the interview, Charlie said that she… thinks Janine Butcher will bring ‘drama and chaos’ to EastEnders.

The actress teased details of her long-awaited comeback in the BBC soap, admitting she plans to ruffle some feathers.

When asked what she can reveal about Janine’s return to the show, Charlie replied, “What can I tell you? High drama. Where Janine goes, drama and chaos usually follow.’

Charlie is eager to explore how Janine’s character has evolved over the years, and she’s also eager to see how she “behaves like a mother.”

The actress revealed that she will also be central to a major upcoming storyline.

She thought, ‘She’s good at being bad, isn’t she? So let’s just say we can expect a little more from that. And also find out who she is down there and… I think it will be interesting to see how she acts as a mother.

“There’s a big fire that happens when I first get back, which I can’t say too much about…”

Charlie hasn’t appeared in EastEnders since 2014, but she’s delighted to have returned to the long-running soap.

The actress explained that the “timing felt right” for her to make a comeback after so many years away.

Charlie – who first appeared on EastEnders in 1999 – said: ‘I’m so happy. I am very happy to be back here at Walford East Station and in the Square.

“You know, the timing felt right. The character had been gone for a long time.
