While talking about romance, Dermot elusively said to his co-star: "Well, you're not available." Playing coy, Alison asked: "What do you mean I'm not available… you trying to say that I'm not available?"

Dermot then sensed the tone, adding: "I don't know, now I'm really confused!" Alison interjected: "Am I not unavailable? Is there someone in my life? Well, you've just told the whole world, thanks!"

The two then fell into hysterics, with Alison teasing Dermot that he had "outed" her about her love life live on-air. "I love it when you out me! Yeah there is someone in my life," she told viewers, adding "I'm going to tell everybody.

"Thank you Dermot for telling everyone but yes there is someone that I'm dating. So yes it is a little bit closed but you know what, I want to share it with everybody!"

The former X Factor host, who was laughing but was clearly embarrassed, added: "I'm so sorry! I forget we're on television!"

Alison then said: "I literally tell you once and you tell everybody! Yes, I'm off the market, I'm so, so sorry everyone. Can someone get Dermot a shovel?"

The duo, who are a big hit with This Morning viewers, will be on the show all week for the half-term break. Holly and Phillip, who usually take time off from the show in line with the school holidays, are thought to be returning to screens next week.
