The This Morning star and her co-host Dermot O'Leary were chatting to the actor who portrays the racy period drama's new male lead, Anthony Bridgerton, all about season two. Referring to the risque scenes that the Netflix drama has become famous for as "shakey-shakey" scenes, Alison was keen to find out more about these were filmed.

She asked: "Going back to the shakey-shakey situation, I heard that you use a netball so that obviously you don't touch each other?"

"Yeah, that's true. That was a new item-" Jonathan began before Alison hilariously quipped: "Have we got a netball anyone! Can we get a demonstration?" which caused everyone in the studio to erupt into fits of laughter.

As he adjusted his position on the sofa, Jonathan explained that the netball they use is actually half-inflated and that the whole idea behind using the prop is "safety first" and creating "a barrier" between the two actors. However, Alison misinterpreted his movement, saying: "Oh, I thought he was coming over to show me!"

She then grabbed two cushions off the sofa and laughed: "Shall we do a demonstration?" before cosying up next to the 32-year-old actor. Always the professional, Jonathan added another cushion, explaining that there is a "three barrier rule".

She jokingly added that all she needed now were lines to read while Jonathan was full of praise for her "screen test".

"This is what it was like with Simone Ashley," he said. "You've smashed it, you're passing with flying colours. Shondaland, get ready."
