With her infectious laugh, naughty sense of humour and incredible interview style that can have even the most notoriously difficult A-listers in stitches, Alison Hammond is a real one-off.

After finding fame as a housemate on Big Brother in 2002, Alison was quickly signed up as a roving reporter for This Morning, and made appearances on the likes of I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! and Strictly Come Dancing.

In recent years, her fame has skyrocketed after a much-deserved promotion to one of the main hosts on This Morning alongside Dermot O’Leary, as well as her role on the BBC’s I Can See Your Voice, which has even seen her nominated for a Bafta.

In fact, we’d go as far to say that she’s basically now the best thing about British telly – and here are 25 clips that prove it...

1. When Alison accidentally pushed a man into the Albert Dock

2. When she told Holly and Phil she wanted a man “with a strong back”

3. When she nearly got arrested while presenting live from Pisa

4. When she conducted a live ceremony for a woman who wanted to marry her dog
