Watch: Alison Hammond says her new boyfriend makes her heart 'sing'

Alison Hammond has confirmed that she has a new boyfriend and that he makes her heart “sing”.

The star of This Morning spilled the beans during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine.

The presenter was on the show to discuss her new book Black In Time, but host Lorraine Kelly couldn’t resist quizzing her on rumours she had a new romance.

“Congratulations,” said Kelly. “I know, because Dermot (O'Leary) revealed it to everybody, because you were trying to keep this lovely romance under wraps.

“But it’s great, it’s just great.”

Hammond, 47, replied: “You don’t want to put pressure on anything do you?”

She went on: “Well all I’m going to say, I’m not going to say we’re in love and everything.

“All I can say is he makes my heart sing and I feel content.”

“He enriches my life in ways I’ve never had before,” she added.

Kelly replied: “Alison you don’t have to say any more than that. Anybody that does that for you, that is fabulous.”

Fans already had an inkling because last month Hammond’s presenting partner Dermot O’Leary appeared to let the cat out of the bag.

During an instalment of the ITV daytime show last month he referred to the fact that his co-host was “not available any more”, rather giving the game away.

Fans were thrilled to hear that Hammond was so happy.
