Why is Alison Hammond famous?

Alison rose to fame back in 2002. Although she was the second housemate to be evicted, she caught television producers eyes.

She quickly went on to appear in a succession of additional reality stars, such as Celebrity Fit Club and Celebrity Stars in Their Eyes.

She even competed on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2010.

But she’s had the most success while presenting This Morning. This year she took up full-time presenting in Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield’s absence over the summer.

In fact, hosting went down a such a treat, that many viewers begged for her to have a regular full-time hosting spot on the popular morning show.
