‘All this juice doesn’t need to be seen’: Alison Hammond refuses to change into bikini ‘in front of camera’ as she prepares to take dip in swimming pool

Alison Hammond waited until the cameras had stopped rolling during Monday’s This Morning before enjoying a dip in the swimming pool of her Madeira hotel.

Alison, 46 – who was visiting Portugal for This Morning to document what it was like to travel now Brits have been given the green light for holidays abroad – made the comment when speaking to show hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

She said: ‘I’m gonna get in that pool. I’m gonna get my bikini on and I’m gonna get in that pool. I’m not gonna do it for the cameras, because all this juice doesn’t need to be seen.’

Speaking about Prince Harry’s recent appearance on 46-year-old Dax’s Armchair Expert podcast, Phillip suggested the Without A Paddle actor spoke over Harry, 36, too much.

‘I thought the podcast was dreadfully done. They’re shocking interviewers. Just shut up and let him speak. I didn’t think that was any good,’ Phillip said of Dax’s approach.

On Thursday, Harry appeared on Armchair Expert where he promoted his Apple TV+ mental health series with Oprah Winfrey, The Me You Can’t See, which premieres next Friday.

Harry, who is expecting a daughter with his wife Meghan Markle this summer, suggested Charles had ‘suffered’ because of his upbringing by the Queen and Prince Philip, and the Prince of Wales had ‘treated me the way he was treated’, calling it ‘genetic pain’.

The Duke of Sussex did not hold back during the wide-ranging interview lasting 90 minutes.

The Duke called royal life ‘a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo’ and said he quit last year to put his family and mental health ‘first’. He also put ‘wild partying’ in his youth down to ‘childhood trauma’, having previously admitted experimenting with cannabis and drinking to excess, and joked about the time he played naked billiards at a party in Las Vegas.
