Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary have returned to host This Morning as new presenting duo Cat Deeley and Ben Shephard take a break for Easter.

And it seems that Alison and Dermot are proving rather popular with viewers. Body language expert Darren Stanton has insisted that while Cat and Ben are total professionals, they just cannot compete with Alison and Dermot’s natural chemistry and charm.

He argues that the pair have a ‘sibling chemistry’ that brings much more fun to the screen than other presenting duos. Speaking on behalf of Betfair Slingo, Darren said: "It’s just effortless with Alison and Dermot.They have that sibling dynamic and are very comfortable in each other’s presence.

The search for new This Morning hosts began last year following the departures of Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, and saw the show hosted by a rotation of different duos before ITV bosses landed on Cat and Ben.
