Alison Hammond's son Aidan is recovering in hospital after undergoing a tonsillectomy. The television star took to social media to issue an update, as she said "my poor baby."

In true fashion from the This Morning star, she was seen joking around with her teenage son, 18, who she shares with ex-husband Noureddine Boufaied. Alison, 49, posted a series of snaps and video clips on her Instagram page as she supported him after his op.

In one of the hilarious clips, aspiring DJ Aidan could be seen sporting a hospital gown as he explained he'd had his tonsils taken out and was "feeling good". He said: "Dunno what all the fuss is about really. It's fine!," reports OK!

Alison joked as another clip showed Aidan alongside the 'help button' in the hospital if he needed to press it for assistance. Alison told him: "But you don't need it right now. I'm here."

She was heard telling her son to "relax" as the effects of the medication kicked in. He slurred: "I'm relaxed man! I'm good." Alison's iconic laugh could be heard in the background as a doctor remarked on how "laidback" her son is.

Alison erupted into fits of giggles as Aidan was lying in the hospital bed appearing to hum along to the tune of an unknown melody. She told him: "You're making me laugh, babe. Is that helping you? Is it soothing?"

Aidan captioned the post: "Aidan 1 - tonsils 0 and Me high as a [kite emoji]." Alison's celebrity pals rushed to the comments to share their well-wishes and speedy recovery for Aidan.

This Morning co-star Josie Gibson commented laughing emojis, while GMB's Alex Beresford said: "Yup 2 weeks of pain and a show with at least 10 seasons. Not sure Poldark is @aidanhammond555 thing but it got me through," with a laughing face.

"So funny get well soon Aidan xx," TOWIE's Amy Childs said. Loose Women's Frankie Bridge added: "Amazing," and Sunetra Sarker said: "Oh Aidan! Get loads of that ice cream down you get well soon xxx".

It comes as Alison shared her son's thoughts on her new romance with new flame Russian masseur David Putman. The pair have been secretly dating for months, and more recently been spotted in the public eye on a string of dates.

Alison said: “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."
