Alison Hammond lets a Strictly secret slip

If she's already got in trouble then it doesn't matter mentioning it again

– Philip Schofield on Alison Hammond's gaffe

Philip and Amanda were united in picking out their best bit of Thursday's show - their chat with This Morning presenter Alison Hammond.

Appearing on the show with her Strictly Come Dancing partner Aljaz Skorjanec , Alison appeared to let the cat out of the bag about their plans for the Halloween show, should she survive in the competition until then.

But what was it...?

Come dancing with our own Alison Hammond

I feel like a winner already. I won when I got Aljaz. He's gorgeous!

– Alison Hammond

As Strictly Come Dancing hots up, we're joined by our very own Alison Hammond, who continues to impress the judges with her jives, sambas and foxtrots.

Alison's here alongside dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec to tell us about how the competition is going so far.

Of her chances she said: "I feel like I won when I got Aljaz, look at him, he's gorgeous!

"It's really tough but so much fun. I think there are about seven winners, Pixie is incredible, Tom is amazing, Caroline is brilliant but I think Jake will win it.

"I hope I get to Halloween week because then they might make me fly! Ooops, am not sure if I should have said that!"

Simon Webbe and Kristina Rihanoff

Alison is hoping there will be a romance on this year's show - and reckons Simon Webbe and his partner Kristina Rihanoff could be a good combination.
She says: "I know Simon is single and I think he and Kristina would make a lovely couple."

Aljaz says: "It's a pure joy to dance with Alison. From the moment we start to when we finish it's so much fun."

The day we (think we) created The X Factor...

Back in 1999, This Morning launched its search to find the latest talented group of popstars.

Appointing three learned and outspoken judges, we aimed to fast-track four hopefuls into certain stardom with a recording contract at the end of an arduous talent search.

Sound familiar? We thought so too... that's why we're waiting for the royalties to start rolling in.
