THIS Morning star Alison Hammond has revealed the hilarious moment she thought she’d beaten Ant and Dec at the National Television Awards.
NTA viewers have claimed Alison Hammond was "robbed" after rival Ant and Dec won the Best Presenter gong.
This Morning star Alison and the Geordie duo were both nominated in the category along with Bradley Walsh.
On the show this morning, Alison addressed losing out to the presenter duo and revealed she actually thought she’d won.
The 47-year-old explained to co-host Dermot O’Leary: “I’ll be honest with you, you were the funniest partner, you sat next to me all yesterday and you just made me laugh throughout the whole show.
“But the funniest moment was – obviously I was up for an award – and I heard ‘Ant and Dec’ being called but I heard ‘Alison’. In my head, I heard ‘Alison’.”

The star playfully continued: “’So then I reached across to Dermot and said, ‘Did they say Alison?’ and Dermot went, ‘No. They didn’t say Alison.’ I was so shameful. It’s so embarrassing!
“I wasn’t joking. I said ‘Did they say Alison babes? And you went ‘no’. But what a great night! We are truly, truly, the whole team, they all work incredibly hard. We are so grateful for this award.”
This Morning celebrated its 12th consecutive NTA win last night.
And despite Alison’s joy over This Morning’s win, fans of the presenter have been left feeling robbed after she failed to secure the award.
Fans shared their reactions on Twitter, and one said: "Alison Hammond not winning an NTA is ridiculous. Ant + Dec winning there 1000 one is just plain boring now. Give it to Alison she deserves it more."
