This Morning’s Alison Hammond has revealed that she’s split from her fiancé Jamie Savage.
Speaking exclusively to OK! magazine, the 41-year-old said: ‘We split up. It’s the worst news ever.’
‘It was really recent and I’m a bit gutted about it. You never know, we might get back together, but I’m not feeling it at the minute.’
‘I don’t think I want anyone else now, I feel really sad. I’m going to have to eat a lot of chocolate to cheer me up!’
Alison met Jamie, a security guard, online in 2014; a relationship which quickly developed into a romance.
At the time, a source told The Sun: ‘They went out on a couple of dates and really hit it off. He’s a security guard, which suits Alison fine. She may be a celebrity, but she’s incredibly down to earth and doesn’t have any airs or graces.’
Another added: ‘Alison is always talking about her boyfriend and will tell everyone everything about him.’
‘She is hilarious and pretty out there with the detail she goes into.’
However, Alison has often avoided questions about her love life in interviews, telling reporters at the time: ‘It’s early days so I’m not going to talk about that.’
However, despite her heartbreak, the mum-of-one made positive strides for her health at the end of last year, losing two stone after giving up sugar.

‘It’s harder now I’m out because sugar is everywhere, but I keep sugar-free about 70 per cent of the time.’
