Alison Hammond has issued an apology to This Morning viewers after a guest’s remark on live TV.

The ITV presenter was speaking to the ‘world’s last leprechaun whisperer’, Kevin Woods, as part of a St Patrick’s Day segment.

Joined by co-host Dermot O’Leary, Alison was catching up with Kevin after the pair first met four years ago in Ireland.

Kevin even brought one of the mythical creatures with him in a bag – but it managed to escape just before we could catch a glimpse!

As it scrambled out of the bag, out of sight, Kevin may have muttered that it was a “wee fecker”.

After showing viewers the enigmatic leprechaun’s shoes and jacket, Alison thanked Kevin for being on the show.

Kevin asked: “Did I say something bad?”

Alison replied: “Well I don’t believe you did, I’m just apologising just in case you did.”

The segment received mixed reviews from viewers, who took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

“What a bloody stupid waste of airtime,” one complained. “Switched over.”

Well I don’t believe you did, I’m just apologising just in case you did.

Another added: “Please cut to the ads #thismorning – cringe.”

Others were more in the spirit.

One viewer tweeted: “This was brilliant to watch. Was hoping to see Darby O’Gill pop out. Having said that, I wouldn’t mess with any forts in Ireland!”

“This was hilarious,” someone else wrote. “When he opened the bag to reveal the shoes I spat my coffee out!”
