Dame Arlene Phillips says ‘you have no idea’ as she responds to Alison Hammond

Dame Arlene Phillips has responded to Alison Hammond to say ‘you have no idea’ after This Morning presenter apologized for her comments about The Bodyguard musical in Manchester which had to be shut down due to disruption Friday night. Alison, 48, said she was ‘really sorry’ for ‘shed light’ on audiences singing musicals during a segment of the show on Wednesday.

Alison apologized on Twitter and vowed to ‘do better in the future’ after the popular presenter and fellow presenters Dermot O’Leary and Vanessa Feltz discussed whether members of the public should be allowed to sing while professional actors perform on stage. There was a backlash to their discussion as Alison said, “I mean, I can’t believe it. I’d be devastated I’m not even going to go to that show now.”

Vanessa said: “Isn’t that the point of going to a musical, you know, you sing all the tunes you know and when you don’t know the words you make them up? Isn’t it isn’t that what everyone does very very hard while eating ice cream?”
