Reposting a video from Alison's Instagram page showing the Friday presenter running on a treadmill, she added the caption: "There is only one @alisonhammond55… come on babe! This year is your year… congratulations… love you!!! #NTA."

Alison faces stiff competition for the gong, with Bradley Walsh, Graham Norton and Ant & Dec all in the running, with the latter famously having received the trophy 20 years in a row.

The nomination might be bitter-sweet for Holly, however, as she and her co-host Phillip Schofield have both been snubbed in the category. 

Meanwhile, This Morning has been nominated in the Daytime TV category alongside fellow ITV programmes Loose Women, The Chase and BBC One's The Repair Shop.

The presenting duo hosted their final show on July 8 before taking their annual holiday and are due to make their return on Monday 5 September. 

Holding down the fort during the pair's break have been Friday presenters Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary, who kicked off the summer rota on July 11 and remained hosting for two weeks. They then passed the reins to Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle for a week before Vernon Kay and Rochelle Humes took over. 

Viewers have also enjoyed seeing a variety of pairings over the past few weeks, including Rochelle and Andi Peters, and Josie and Vernon.

Ruth Langsford also made her return to the programme this week alongside Rylan Clark. The 62-year-old's week on the show marks the first time she has hosted the show since she and husband Eamonn Holmes stepped down from their regular Friday slot in December of 2020.
