Dermot O'Leary chimed in that she should make an appointment with a chiropodist to get it sorted, to which Alison said: "That's very true."

This isn't the first time Dermot has expressed concern for Alison's wellbeing. In April, the 47-year-old admitted on the ITV show that she was feeling a little under the weather before asking about Dermot's health. "I'm fine. I'm worried about you!" he replied. "You've got hay fever, haven’t you?"
