This Morning’s Josie Gibson dramatically falls in the sea after attempting live surf leaving Alison Hammond in hysterics
JOSIE Gibson suffered a dramatic fall in the sea after attempting to surf live on This Morning - leaving Alison Hammond in hysterics.
The TV presenter was in Bristol to mark the reopening of sports facilities next week.
She told viewers: "Today I'm going to try and catch a wave live on This Morning to celebrate the reopening on Monday."
Being cheered on by Alison and her co-host Dermot O'Leary from the studio, Josie jumped on the surfboard with a coach by her side.
"Look at her little face," said Alison.
"Yes, go on girl."
Suddenly, as Josie attempted to stand up on the board, she was knocked off a wave and ending up splashing around in the sea.
She disappeared under water before remerging as she tried to fight the current while the camera was pointed at her - and Alison and Dermot threw their heads back laughing.
"Bless her," said Dermot.
Alison asked: "Is she alright? Oh she's our girl. She's the best. I love her."
Congratulating Josie on her surfing attempt, Dermot said: "Way to go, Jose."
