Inside This Morning’s boozy Christmas dinner with special A-list guest

THIS Morning’s star-studded cast got very merry at the programme’s annual Christmas lunch yesterday.

Presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond, Gok Wan, Lisa Snowden and Rochelle Humes were all in attendance as they tucked into a hearty meal and sank many drinks.

More celebrity sparkle was added when Virgin Radio’s Chris Evans and pop star James Blunt crashed the party for a festive singalong.

The pair were in fine spirits as they belted out O Come, All Ye Faithful while nursing pint glasses.

Party hats sat on top of heads as Alison delivered a vocal worthy of her ITV show I Can See Your Voice.

It was a raucous affair with plenty of drink flowing and fashionista Gok warned: “@thismorning Christmas lunch! There will def be some sore heads on the show tomorrow! 😂”

In a smiley selfie, Gok sat between Alice Beer and Eva Speakman, while Dr Zoe Williams, Craig Doyle, Sharon Marshall and Holly completed the pic.

His fans told him they’d have loved to have been there and could only imagine how much the eye-watering bill must have been.

When it comes to Christmas Day proper Alison will be joined by another co-star.

She opened up on her holiday season schedule to Jessie Ware and her mum Lennie, on their Table Manners podcast.

As the trio dined on festive food and booze, mum-of-one Alison said: “This year, I have quite a big household.

“My brother will be there, my son, Josie Gibson, 37, always comes with her little boy,” to which musician Jessie said: “Does she? I love her!”

Alison continued: “Yes, so she was there last year and she’s here this year.

“Then I’ve got my housemate Jason and his dog Bobby and that’s it this year.”

Last year, the This Morning presenting duo delighted fans after they confirmed they were spending Christmas together.

Former Big Brother star Josie posted a series of snaps from Christmas Day and Boxing Day 2021, showing off Alison’s delicious-looking spread.

Revealing that Alison went all out, Josie revealed they tucked into a selection of meats, vegetables, roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings.
