Is Alison  married?

Alison has been married in the past to cab driver Noureddine Boufaied but the pair divorced.

They share 16-year-old son Aiden, who Alison lives with in Birmingham.

It’s not clear when their marriage ended, but in 2014 she got engaged to single dad and security guard Jamie Savage after meeting online.

Sadly it wasn’t to be and, in 2017, she said the agony of their heartbreak had put her off finding love again.

“We split up. It’s the worst news ever. I don’t think I want anyone else now,” she said.

The former cinema worker was briefly involved with audio technician Ben Kusi who she met on Celebs Go Dating earlier in 2020.

Alison is currently believed to be single.

How did This Morning hosts Alison and Dermot clash?

At the start of the year, Alison and Dermot took over the This Morning Friday morning slot from Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

The former X Factor presenter admitted in a recent interview he and Alison “annoyed” each other when they first worked together.

It led to a frank conversation once the cameras stopped rolling.

Dermot told The Sun at the time: “We both did something that the other didn’t like – nothing major – but after it happened we looked at each other, and I said: ‘You didn’t like it when I did that, did you?’ And she said no, she didn’t.

And I said: ‘Okay, well I didn’t like it when you did that thing.’ We both laughed, because now we knew.
