This Morning's Alison Hammond is ecstatic after achieving a remarkable five stone weight loss.

The 49 year old TV personality has been romantically linked with 26 year old Russian masseur David Putman since earlier this year, coinciding with the start of her slimming journey. A source close to Alison spoke to Closer magazine, hinting that while engagement isn't on the cards just yet, she's been focusing on losing weight to slip into the wedding dress of her dreams.

They revealed: "Alison doesn't recognise her reflection, she thinks it's insane. She's lost almost 5st and is still going strong. She wants to be a sexy bride for her new man." Furthermore, the insider indicated that Alison is targeting an additional three stone loss to become a "healthy version of herself", as reported by the Express.

A familiar face from The Great British Bake Off, Alison has previously taken part in Celebrity Fit Club and Sugar Free Farm. It appears, though, that she has now found a successful strategy for shedding pounds, reports the Mirror.

Beyond her weight loss, friends say Alison is revamping her wardrobe, offloading her former size 26 clothes and working closely with fashion stylists. Sources close to her have noted she's never been happier or healthier, stating that "every part of her life" has been touched positively by her recent transformation.

Alison reportedly first met David when she availed of his massage therapy services, which quickly developed into a close friendship before blossoming into a romance. Prior to this, the television star was linked with landscape gardener Ben Hawkins from 2021 until February 2023. Her past relationships also include taxi driver Noureddine Boufaied, who is the father of her 19 year old son Aiden, and later a romantic stint with security guard Jamie Savage.

After a rollercoaster love life, Alison's fans will surely be delighted to hear that her most recent relationship appears to be having a positive impact on her. A source told Closer that she was left "blown away" by the overwhelmingly positive reaction from her fanbase regarding her recent transformation.
