Alison Hammond was hailed as the ‘queen of TV’ on Wednesday after a hilarious moment in which she accidentally knocked a male assistant into the Albert Dock.

As part of This Morning’s 30th anniversary celebrations, Alison had been sent to Liverpool’s Albert Dock to present the weather forecast live from a floating map.

It was a staple of the show back in the Eighties where shamed former weatherman Fred Talbot used to present in knitted jumpers.

But during Alison’s attempt as she was jumping from Scotland to Northern Ireland she lost her balance.

Grabbing onto her two male assistants – who were dressed in skimpy sailor costumes – Alison ended up shoving one straight into the cold water of the River Mersey.

‘Alison Hammond is just the absolute best,’ gushed one.

One said: ‘Jumping from England to Ireland mid-weather report and knocking one of the topless sailors into the water, we don’t deserve Alison Hammond, QUEEN of daytime TV.’

The first segment aired earlier in the show went off without a hitch, but then as Alison began moving up the map things went awry.

The moment was hailed as a classic by viewers who called for Alison to have her own show

Alison had been watering somewhere in Birmingham and Wales before she moved up towards Scotland and then made the jump

A flustered Alison confessed she was embarrassed it had happened after accidentally knocking the sailor into the sea

The assistant was later seen getting wrapped up in a towel after making in back from the floating map a little wet but in one piece

She had just poured water from watering can on Birmingham before heading to Backside in Scotland, which according to Alison was going to be ‘a little bit cold and a little bit wet’.

Holly and Phillip were watching from the studio and looked on with worry as her sparkly cardigan got stuck on the Welsh Dragon located in Wales.

There was a tense moment before she swiftly moved on but as she attempted the classic jump she stumbled on the landing.

Making it the first time round, Alison wasn’t as lucky as things went terribly wrong and her assistant landed in the water with a splash.

She gasped in horror asking the wet sailor: ‘Are you alright? I am so sorry!’

Flustered over the mishap Alison shouted for a towel as Holly and Phil were seen back in the studio crying with laughter.

Alison vowed to carry on saying it was ‘important’ before confessing: ‘Oh my god, I’m so embarrassed.’
