ITV’s This Morning is set to welcome an array of new presenters for the summer as regulars Phillip Schofield, Holly Willoughby, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary all take a break from their duties. 

And Friday morning’s edition of the show saw Alison, 47, and Dermot, 49, say their goodbyes as they hosted their last show until September.

The pair played a sweet montage of all of the best moments from the year past on the daytime show.

Joined by a swarm of cast members from London’s Mamma Mia The Party, the duo celebrated their last show outside of the White City Television Studio in a setup inspired by the movie franchise.

Saying farewell, Alison told the camera: ‘Thank you so much for your company. Thank you so much for watching the show, it’s been absolutely amazing. We thought we’d leave you with some beautiful moments that we’ve loved from the show with us and Phillip and Holly.’

‘We’ll see you in September, have a great summer,’ cut in Dermot – before Alison shouts ‘bye’ as they throw their hands in the air.

As they went ‘back in time’ with the selection of clips, a graphic reading ‘Back to the first day of the series’ appeared.

During the show, Alison and Dermot chatted with Loose Women’s Kaye Adams to find out what was coming up on the show – as she exclaimed how much she would miss the duo.

Pretending to cry as the camera came onto her, Kaye wiped her cheeks with tissues before declaring ‘I’m gonna miss you two’.

The Scottish native left Alison and Dermot in stitches with the bit, before shaking herself off and continuing with the actual segment.

This Morning has been presented by the duo for the last two weeks, following Holly and Phillip’s summer departure.

And now their continuous stint has come to an end, with Ruth Langsford, Josie Gibson, Rochelle Humes, Vernon Kay, Rylan Clark, Craig Doyle, Mollie King, and Andi Peters all ready to step in for the summer.
