Alison Hammond issued a huge apology on This Morning on Friday, after breaking part of the set within seconds of entering the studio.
The telly favourite got a bit too excited when she sat down with co-presenter Dermot O’Leary, and knocked a statue off of the desk.
As she prepared for the show to go live on air, she moved her arm suddenly and sent a Christmas decoration flying.
Breaking it into two, Alison was mortified and spoke at the start of the show about the blunder.
Alison issued an apology to those who worked hard on the Christmas set, before explaining what went wrong.
She revealed: “I’ve literally just thrown over the nutcracker,” as Dermot screamed: “Oh, how can you do that to the nutcracker?”
As Alison pointed to the floor, she went on: “Let me get it, it’s actually smashed. I’m so sorry. I got all enthusiastic and look what I’ve done.
“I came into this beautiful studio and it was all Christmassy, and I’ve already broken something. I’m like the biggest klutz. I’m so sorry.
“I went let’s have a good show, and then I literally flicked it off and broke it. I’m so sorry everybody, Chris who did the whole set I am so, so sorry.”
Later in the show, Alison said she had some big news to share before showing viewers the once damaged ornament which was now fixed.
They had managed to put it back together, with her quickly apologising again.
She said: “I’ve got some exciting news! They have actually fixed the thing I broke earlier, I am so, so sorry.”
Dermot and the crew saw the funny side, laughing hysterically throughout the encounter.
Meanwhile, viewers were as equally as amused, with one tweeting: “Alison omg lol!” and another saying: “Who doesn’t love Alison Hammond?”
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
