ALISON Hammond almost got arrested live on This Morning as Italian police tried to stop her filming.
The show favourite found herself in trouble with the law as she filmed her segment in Pisa without a permit.
Just seconds into filming her live coverage, Alison had only managed to say her location and mention the Leaning Tower of Pisa when chaos ensued.
All of a sudden, she was approached by three members of the Italian police force, with an officer appearing in front of the screen.
The panicked host told presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, who were back in the studio: "Oh my Gosh, we haven't got a permit, we aren't allowed to film here.
"I'm going to get arrested… I love you loads!"
She then turned back to the police to do damage control, overheard apologising to them repeatedly.
Back in the studio, Phil and Holly were left gobsmacked.

After pausing to show a 'Prize Draw' clip, the studio hosts then went back to see if Alison, 44, was out of trouble – only to find her still filming despite her reprimand.
"Look at my hand, I'm actually shaking. They hate me," she said, before the angry police woman reappeared to warn her again.
Phil and Holly then urged their colleague to "Run, quickly" – she took their advice, and was seen running away.
Fans were left in stitches by the faux pas.
One tweeted her directly, saying: "It was absolutely hysterical watching you this morning. I'm sorry – I know it wasn't too pleasant for you!"
Another said: "Alison you are a legend and you always make me smile even when I don't feel like it keep up the great work."
The star – who made her name on Big Brother in 2001 – has been showcasing her incredible weight loss in recent weeks.
She made fans do a double take last week when she unveiled a new profile picture where she looked remarkably like pop superstar Beyonce.
Yesterday fans labelled her "Skinny Minnie" as she posed for pictures alongside Minnie Mouse on a Disney cruise ship.
She was unveiled as a Weight Watchers ambassador back in April when she came in at 20-stone on the scales.
And she has also been incorporating weight training and cardio into her weight loss challenge, as she filmed herself in the gym this week.
