Alison Hammond reveals there’s ‘someone in her life’

Alison Hammond was forced to reveal she has a special ‘someone in her life’ after Dermot O’Leary accidentally slipped up.

On Monday’s This Morning Alison asked Dermot about his birthday week, with his actual birthday landing on May 24.

He thanked her for her ‘timeless’ present and gushed over how lovely of a person she is before saying it’s too bad she isn’t available.

“You’re very kind. Just as a person you gave me a lovely present,” the 49-year-old gushed over the co-presenter.

“I’ll tell you what, she’s not available anymore, but if you were…”

Alison, 47, was shocked that he let slip she was dating someone and questioned him: “What do you mean I’m not available? I’m available.”

Dermot was trying to thank Alison for her present



A panicked Dermot tried to fix things by yelling out: “She’s available. I don’t know. Now I’m really confused.”

However, the damage was already done.

In the end, Alison decided to come clean and told the audience: “There is somebody in my life. I’m going to tell everybody. Thank you, Dermot, for telling everyone but there is somebody I’m dating.

“So yes, it is a little bit closed but you know what, I want to share it. Thank you for outing me. I literally tell you once and you tell everybody.”

However, he let slip that she’s dating someone



Dermot meekly admitted that he forgot he was on television before they changed the subject.

Alison and Dermot have been hosting the mid-morning show together for a while now and they really enjoy their presenting partnership, with the pair quickly having been able to iron out any differences.

“We are so honest with each other now, we tell each other: ‘Can you not do that again. I don’t like it,'” Alison shared, “It’s the little things, nothing major. He steals my lines and he doesn’t keep up to speed with my life on Instagram.”

Dermot added of their first meeting: “We never got to pilot, we’d never read a script through, we didn’t even have lunch together. We literally met for the first time in 15 years or so and that morning we presented two -and-a-half hours of live television together.

“The idea that there wouldn’t be a period of getting to know each other is insane.”

The presenting duo have made endless blunders on the show, but it’s always in good fun as they burst out laughing and quickly fix their mistakes.

It probably helps that the energetic presenters get along like a house on fire.
