During their interview with the TV personality, Alison said: "I miss you, I love you. The last time I saw you, you were with your dog. I've just been told I'm going to get a four-legged friend. Have you still got your dog?"

Graham then awkwardly replied: "Erm, no. Dead." As Dermot hid his face in his hands and started laughing, Alison said: "Gutted, oh I'm so sorry. I'm absolutely devastated. That's the worst thing to say!" 

Graham laughed along with Dermot at the faux pas, telling Alison: "I was, I was devastated when it happened. I'm being horrible to you!"

Taking to Twitter to discuss the moment, one person wrote: "Alison: 'The last time I saw you you were walking your beautiful dog. Have you still got her?' Graham Norton: 'No. Dead!' Alison and Dermot are perfect additions to the show #ThisMorning." Another added: "I spat out my tea!"

Have you been enjoying them on the show?

"Here’s my confession - at Radio 2 I was never allowed to touch a button, I was just gloves on, and I’d sit there and talk. So everything happened around me. But here, I’m pushing some buttons and it’s pathetic how excited that makes me."
