Alison Hammond appeared on Celebs Go Dating in a bid to find love, but ever since, the This Morning host has kept her love life to herself. However, during Monday’s ITV show, Dermot O’Leary accidentally told viewers that Alison was “seeing someone”.
He later tried to backtrack on his comment, but in the end, his co-star came clean and told everyone her exciting news.
“You’re not available anymore, are you?” Dermot began before adding: “But if you were…”
Looking confused Alison replied: “What do you mean I am not available?”
“You know…” Dermot awkwardly replied as Alison insisted: “I’m available.”

Dermot proceeded to put his head in his hands as Alison told him: “Thank you, Dermot for telling everybody…
“But there is somebody I am dating,” the former Big Brother star confirmed.
“So yeah, it is a bit close but I want to share it with them,” Alison said before a mortified Dermot concluded: “Just as well.”
Viewers were thrilled by Alison’s news and many took to social media to share their thoughts.
