‘Thanks for totally ruining it!’: This Morning viewers furious as Alison Hammond reveals The Drowning’s ending while interviewing Jill Halfpenny

This Morning viewers were left furious on Friday after Alison Hammond revealed major plot details for The Drowning’s finale. 

The Channel 5 thriller came to a dramatic close on Thursday night and Jill Halfpenny, who played grieving mother Jodie, appeared on the show to talk about the series. 

While Dermot O’Leary sat with headphones in so as not to hear any spoilers, other viewers were not so lucky as Alison began to talk about the plot twist – despite the host giving a warning before the interview.

In the finale, Jill’s character Jodie discovers the teenage boy she’d become convinced was her missing son Tom wasn’t related to her at all. 

She also makes the heartbreaking discovery it was in fact her brother, Jason (Jonas Armstrong), who caused Tom’s accidental death nine years prior. 

After Alison revealed these details, viewers who hadn’t yet caught up the final episode Tweeted their annoyance at her revealing the ending.

Talking about the discovery Jill said: ‘I really wanted it to be Tom and at the end of episode when they said “it’s a match, he’s your son”. I was like “yes, yes, yes” and then I thought “there’s a whole another episode to read”, but I didn’t call it at all.   

‘I didn’t thank that was going to happen.’  

During the interview, Jill was also asked if a second series could be in the works. 

She replied: ‘Yeah I think it could. If they had a story, they could do it like The Missing. I don’t know if there’s another story, but it is a possibility, it would be great.’ 

The actress also talked about how she managed to maintain the Jodie’s characterisation after filming had to be suspended due to lockdown regulations last year. 

Jill said: ‘I just kept thinking I have to keep her clear close in my head because I know when I get back they’d want to go straight in. 

‘It’s almost like muscle memory, you do your research and your like yeah, I know what I’m doing. 

‘I was so worried we wouldn’t go back. I would honestly have been broken-hearted if we didn’t go back.’
