What made her so popular?
After competing on the third season of Big Brother in 2002, Alison shot to fame.
The show served as a springboard for her career, and the following year she was hired as a host on ITV’s This Morning.
Viewers were quick to point out that the steering wheel wasn’t moving when she did her own version of Carpool Karaoke with Ferne McCann, which she’s famous for doing with her celebrity interview subjects.
Is she seen on any other shows?
Alison was the fourth competitor to leave the I’m a Celebrity jungle when she appeared in 2010.
In 2014, she competed with Aljaz Skorjanec on Strictly Come Dancing.
She has also appeared in pantos such as Snow White, Jack and the Beanstalk, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. She isn’t afraid to put on a show.
As part of Sugar Free Farm, seven celebrities gave up sugar and took to the fields to grow their own nutritious food – and Alison was so overcome with emotion that she burst into tears.
Hotel Transylvania 3 was also the star’s first foray into the big screen in 2018.
On Celebs Go Dating and the celebrity edition of The Great British Bake Off in 2020, she’s been featured.
For two episodes of Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and a judge on BBC competition show I Can See Your Voice in 2021, she made appearances as a guest.
Celebs Go Dating, Ready Steady Cook, MasterChef and Celebs in Their Eyes are just some of the other reality shows in which she has been a contestant.
Aside from that, she served as a referee on a variety of shows, including The Time It Takes, Celebrity Juice, and the live versions of Celebrity Haunted Hotel.
What’s her marital status?
Hammond is single currently. Former cab driver Noureddine Boufaied married the Birmingham-born actress in 2008. Later, they got divorced in 2014.
Aiden is the only child of the couple, who split in 2014.
After meeting Jamie Savage online, she later got engaged to him.
“We split up,” she said, in 2017, referring to their relationship breakup. This is the worst possible news. There is no one else in my life right now.”
Ben Kusi, an audio technician she met on Celebs Go Dating in 2020, was a brief love interest of Alison’s.
