It comes after Alison recently opened up about spending Christmas without her mum.

Since she died, the star and her family have been seeking out “new traditions” in a bid to fill the hole Maria left.

Last year, Alison told the Mirror: “We always play board games so that’s a bit of a thing and a tradition we always do as a family.
