Alison Hammond makes an awkward blunder while interviewing EastEnders’ Charlie Brooks as she returns to This Morning after sick leave

Alison Hammond made her return to presenting This Morning on Wednesday after skipping Monday and Tuesday due to illness. 

The TV presenter, 46, was co-hosting for the day alongside Rochelle Humes and had an awkward blunder while interviewing actress Charlie Brooks.

The soap star is returning to her role as Janine Butcher on EastEnders next week but Alison appeared to think the ongoing series was itself returning from a break.

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

‘Thank you, so nice to see you guys,’ Charlie replied.  

Some fans took to Twitter to react to the mishap, with one writing: ‘Alison is clearly not an avid fan’.

Charlie is keen to explore how Janine’s character has evolved in recent years and she’s also eager to see how she ‘behaves as a mother’.

The actress revealed she’ll be central to a big upcoming storyline, too.

She reflected: ‘She’s good at being bad, isn’t she? So let’s say we can expect a little bit more of that. And also exploring who she is underneath that and… I think it’ll be interesting to see how she behaves as a mother.

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