Speaking in May, Alison admitted that it took her two months before she and Dermot “became comfortable” with each other this morning.
The couple revealed they need to have “private conversations” to iron out what they don’t like about each other’s presentation styles.
The former Big Brother star believes their partnership on the show is working because they were “so honest with each other” during the first few months and compared the collaboration to an “arranged marriage.”
Speaking to Lorraine alongside Alison, Dermot admitted that they barely have time to get used to each other’s nuances.
Alison said, “We were literally thrown together, like an arranged marriage. It took about two months before we were comfortable.
