You all know Alison Hammond – famous for playing the topless sailor who seduced Harrison Ford.
Well, on Saturday night, the much-loved ITV presenter was involved in another iconic television event when he appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Big Show.
In a segment called, Midnight Gameshow, McIntyre comes to the Hammond house in the early hours of the morning to play various games with the popular television host. And he didn’t come alone – no, sir!
After confirming with Hammond that he was supposed to appear on the iconic dating game show Blind Date before he found fame, McIntyre set about creating a version of Blind Date that Hammond could play from his bed.
Unbeknownst to the This Morning host, beyond the pink screen was her childhood sweetheart, Jason Donovan!
Hammond proceeded to guess who his “date” was, reducing it to “singer” before asking Donovan if he was on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and Neighbors.
After confirming his suspicions, Donovan appears on screen and Hammond completely loses consciousness.Alison admitted that she had had a crush on the Australian TV star since childhood
“Ah, Jason Donovan… here I don’t need you in my bed!” Hammond shouted before asking for the screen to be removed and the crew to leave his room so he could be alone with the Neighbors star.
Standing next to the pair in bed together, McIntyre dug deeper into Hammond’s “obsession” with the 1980s TV icon.
“I was just obsessed,” he admits, “when he married Kylie Minogue in Neighbours, I used to pretend and dream that it was actually me you were marrying,” he admits.
Hammond and Donovan then performed the song Suddenly by Angry Anderson – the song that plays during Donovan and Minogue’s memorable wedding scene in Neighbors – with Hammond admitting that it was “the best day of his life”.
“I’m married,” Donovan protested when McIntyre said it was their wedding day. “Just forget about him for now,” Hammond clapped back before bursting into laughter.
Fans called Hammond’s appearance on the show one of the “best television shows ever,” primarily because of Hammond’s incredible reactions.
