Alison Hammond was forced to confirm that she is no longer single after Dermot O’Leary let it slip while they were hosting Monday’s edition of This Morning.
During the live ITV daytime show, O’Leary, 49, turned to Hammond, 47, and said: “You’re not available anymore, but if you were, jeez what a catch!”
Playing coy, she replied: “What do you mean I’m not available? I’m available!”
After a bit of playful back and forth between them, she finally confirmed it was true and jokingly told O’Leary off for “telling the world”.

While a third declared: “That’s it everyone is going to be trying to find Alison’s man.”

Her most recent known boyfriend was security guard Jamie Savage, who she met through a dating site.
They got engaged in 2014 before calling time on the romance in 2017.
