This Morning viewers thought they were hallucinating when they watched Alison Hammond interview a tree on Wednesday.

The presenter, 45, had fans at home in stitches when she was filmed chatting to a 1000-year-old oak tree in Liverpool, which has been nominated for European Tree Of The Year.

Hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield couldn't contain their laughter as they watched poker-faced Alison quiz the sessile oak about its rich history via the medium of a tree whisperer.

Approaching the oak, Alison asks tree guru Holly Worton: 'I've interviewed superstars... but never a tree! 

'Do we need to touch the tree? Do I just ask the tree a question?'

Taking the responsibility very seriously, the bubbly presenter begins: 'OK so here we go, for our exclusive interview. 

'First of all, you are up for this amazing, prestigious title. How does it feel to be nominated for European Tree Of The Year?'

Alison presses her ear closer to the trunk, a deadpan expression on her face as she pretends to listen for a response.
