Alison Hammond in tears over This Morning surprise – but fans spot funny mistake

Alison Hammond ended up fighting back tears on Friday's episode of This Morning after best pal Josie Gibson surprised her with a sweet message.

The This Morning legend celebrated her 46th birthday on the show, with co-host Dermot O'Leary and ITV pulling out all the stops to surprise her with appearances from her showbiz friends.

Big Brother champ Josie made an appearance via video link from her Bristol home, reading out a heartfelt message she'd written for her pal while standing in front of a balloon banner.

Alison got teary as Josie described her as the "cherry on her cake" and the "vinegar to her chips" among other compliments.

But fans – and Dermot – quickly noticed a spelling mistake on the birthday balloon banner Josie had hung up for her mate.

"Anyone else notice Josie's happy birthday sign read 'happy birthray'?" tweeted one viewer, adding a string of laughing emojis.

Another said: "Happy birthray Josie? Seriously?"

A third tweeted: "Happy birthray?" alongside some confused face emojis.

Someone else wrote: "Happy birthday? Josie, where did you get those balloons?"

"I am so proud of everything you've done this year, you've been a voice to so many people, and I've wrote you a little poem."
