Alison Hammond beamed as she graced the red carpet alongside her beau David Putnam and her son Aiden at The Candy Kittens Candy Day Summer Bash in London. The trio looked in high spirits and posed together for the cameras.

This Morning favourite Alison looked lovely in a blue floral dress, sunglasses and sandals, showcasing her weight loss journey, and she couldn't stop smiling throughout the event.

After much speculation about her love life, Alison finally opened up about her relationship with David. She also spilled the beans on her son's thoughts regarding her new beau.

Previously, Alison had teased fans with hints of romance, posting snaps with David on her Instagram Stories and even engaging with his social media by dropping a flirty love heart eye emoji on one of his pictures.

But it wasn't until her candid chat on Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe's Parenting Hell podcast that she confirmed the news everyone was waiting for.

When quizzed by the comedic duo, "Are you single Alison?" she excitedly revealed: "No... I'm not single.. I'm dating. I'm dating!"

The conversation then turned to the complexities of dating as a single mum, especially with her 19 year old son Aiden being more outspoken.

Alison confessed that Aiden is keen to ensure any man in her life treats her right, and he's given his seal of approval to David, noting that he's 'not too in your face' on Instagram.

Alison went on to share about Aiden and David's first meeting, saying: "When they actually met, he really liked him, he really thought he was lovely, so that's nice. Thank goodness for that! Because normally Aiden hates anybody I date, literally just not interested. And you just know at that point, if Aiden doesn't like them, this isn't gonna work."

The mother-son duo are known for their close bond. They were spotted enjoying a night out together at DJ Fat Tony's engagement party at The Londoner Hotel back in May.

Aiden, who occasionally appears alongside his mum on TV, revealed earlier this year that he's also a DJ and is set to make his festival debut at Camp Bestival in Dorset this summer.

David, originally from Krasnodar, chose to leave Russia and moved to the UK in December 2022, as reported by The Sun.

It's said that David is "not bothered by fame" and isn't concerned about the 23-year age gap between him and Alison.
