Alison Hammond, 47, debuted her slim figure whilst presenting the popular ITV show, which she co-hosts with former X Factor presenter Dermot O’Leary, 49, every Friday and occasionally during the week or school holidays. The pair share a close bond and on their latest This Morning appearance, Dermot complimented Alison saying she looked “sensational” in a brown floral dress and blazer over the top.

Taking the compliment, Alison went on to explain to viewers that everyone in the studio had been comparing her to Michelle Obama.

“Is it too much?” Alison asked.

To which Dermot replied: “We do think you would be a very good leader of the country!”

Going along with the banter, Alison quipped: “I hope I live up to how I look.”

The star looked formal in a brown and cream crimped dress that went up to her neck and a lighter brown blazer which she wore over the top.

With her hair styled and down, and her nails painted to match her outfit, the team behind This Morning made the star pose in a similar position to the former First Lady, putting their images side by side.

“It is uncanny isn’t it!” Alison rejoiced. “I love Michelle Obama.”

Back in July, Alison revealed she had cut out sugar to help her shed the pounds.

This was after the star lost her mother back in 2020. At the time the former Big Brother star weighed her heaviest at 20 stone.

Speaking on the What If? podcast with Lorraine Kelly, Alison explained: “Sometimes I look at myself and go, ‘Wow, I am a big girl’.

“But I like taking up a bit of space.

“I take a little bit of extra space in the world and I don’t think I’m hurting anyone.”

The presenter continued to say that she is going to live her life to the fullest even though she “doesn’t know how long” she is going to go on for.

She added: “We’re all going to die eventually. I might die a little bit sooner, but I’m going to live my life to the fullest.

“And if I do die sooner, I’m going to have a fantastic life.

“I’m going to have a wonderful life. I’m 47 now, I don’t know how long I’m going to go on for.”

This was not the first time Alison has spoken about her weight and health after 2019 she was unveiled as an ambassador for Weight Watchers.

She said: “My WW journey is focused on getting healthier for myself. I feel rubbish when I don’t eat properly or exercise and WW helps me with what I eat and do.

“I know I’ll also lose weight by following the WW programme, but that’s not the be-all and end-all for me.

“I want my journey to empower others to think about making changes to their lifestyle to become the best version of themselves.”
