This Morning presenter Alison Hammond has shared what it's like working on her brand new entertainment show on BBC One.

I Can See Your Voice, which began tonight (April 10), sees Alison join forces with comedian Jimmy Carr and Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden as they try to help contestants win a cash prize. The celebrity panel has to help spot the good and bad singers from a line-up of performers.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Alison detailed her experience on the show and shared the hilarious reason why Amanda kept getting told off while on set.

"She [Amanda] taught me how to show a bit more leg! You know, sitting down and how to edge the skirt up a little bit. She taught me a bit about sex appeal," Alison said.

"She kept getting in trouble for opening her legs. They had to keep saying, 'Amanda,
keep your legs shut!' That really tickled me. But mainly it was our laughs – they're just so loud. We were like laugh twins. And then you've got Jimmy's laugh. We sound horrendous together – we were like three horns."

Alison explained that filming I Can See Your Voice was a great experience for her and that she was pleasantly surprised by how well she worked with Amanda and Jimmy.

Alison said: "It was so much fun. Jimmy and Amanda put a smile on my face. They are the funniest guys to be around in a lockdown.

"It was lovely to be with Jimmy, who obviously fell in love with me. We had the banter, but sadly we never had a cuddle or a kiss.

"I'm such a touchy-feely person, I just really struggled with that side of things. We got to do a little miming duet, though. At first, I didn't see it working, putting me, Jimmy and Amanda together, but whoever did is a genius. And Paddy [McGuinness] was a dream to work with."

I Can See Your Voice airs on Saturday evenings on BBC One.
