A Happier Alison Hammond Reveals New Mystery Man

Alison Hammond has reportedly found “a trusted companion,” with it having been suggested that she’s “never been happier” amid rumours of a possible new relationship.

The presenter, 49 – who works on shows like This Morning – has previously attracted attention over past romances. It’s now been suggested that she’s feeling “confident” with a potential new partner, whose name has yet to be disclosed.

Photos, understood to have been shared by Alison recently on Instagram, show the former Big Brother housemate posing alongside an unidentified individual. The pair are seen smiling beside each other in a selfie, for example.

Another photo shows them stood in a garden. Alison is seen wearing a black top, patterned trousers and a padded coat, along with a pair of white sandals and a baseball cap. The other individual is seen in a black top, grey trousers, a brown jacket, a red scarf, a brown hat and a pair of black shoes.

They are also seen posing for a photo together whilst both sat on a bench. The pair are pictured on opposite sides of the bench. Whilst one showed them sat together in a restaurant. The photos seem to have been shared alongside what appeared to be music from the film Interstellar (2014).

The photos have been published by the Sun and a source spoke to the outlet about the pair. The source said: “Alison has never been happier. She has had a turbulent love-life, but is finally confident she has found a trusted companion. They looked just like honeymooners.”

Alison has spoken about her personal life on occasion, including having previously teased that she is comfortable on her own. She opened up about it on an episode Gyles Brandreth’s podcast Rosebud which was released last year. “I absolutely love my own company. I have no problem being on my own, in fact, I really quite like it. I think that’s the reason why I struggle in some relationships because I don’t want somebody around me all the time. I actually love being on my own. I’m okay with it. I’ve never felt lonely,” she said.

The Great British Bake Off host stated on the podcast that she was never married to her ex-partner Noureddine Boufaied, despite reports suggesting otherwise. Alison and her ex-partner Noureddine are parents to son Aidan, 19. She told pal Gyles on the podcast last year: “I’ve never been married. I’ve dreamt of it.” She however added at the time that she may “not want to get married” if the opportunity arose in the future and discussed having “cold feet” herself.

Alison said: “I think as soon as I hear the word marriage I get like cold feet. I think I’m just one of those people. […] I just feel like I’m tied down and I don’t like it, when really and truly, I’m getting to that age now where I just think ‘Alison, let go – it’s okay to settle down’.” She added: “I always just get a bit nervous to like be … know that is it.”
