Alison Hammond is reportedly dating a landscape gardener, after previously revealing she had a secret boyfriend who she was "ready to marry".
The TV presenter, 48, is said to have hit it off with gardener Ben Hawkins after she hired him to do some work on her Midlands home two years ago.
This Morning host Alison is said to often spend time with the gardener at his parents’ home in Worcestershire, where he still lives, after Alison previously revealed she was open to marriage with her mystery boyfriend.
A pal reportedly said: “They love to hang out and have been for meals and down to the pub.
“They’re both down to earth and get on like a house on fire."
They continued to The Sun: “She makes him laugh and Alison thinks it’s cute he still lives with his parents.”
OK! has reached out to a rep for Alison Hammond for comment.
Although Alison usually keeps her dating life out of the spotlight, she did reveal last year that she was dating someone and would be open to walking down the aisle with him.
A few months earlier, it was her This Morning co-star, Dermott O'Leary, 49, who first lifted the lid on a romance whilst they were live on television in May.
As Dermot and Alison engaged in their usual jovial chat, Dermot said: "You're not available anymore are you, but if you were, you'd be a catch", as he gave her a friendly nudge.
Incredulously she replied: "What do you mean 'I'm not available."
Realising his slip-up, Dermot scrambled for what to say next, as he said: "Well, erm, you know" as Alison laughed: "I'm available", to which Dermot said: "Oh she is available."
Mum-of-one Alison then exclaimed: "Are you trying to say I'm not available?"
Dermot then replied: "Well, I dunno, now I'm really confused, I thought you weren't available."
Alison acted coy as she teased: "Is there someone in my life?", to which Dermot replied, "I think so" before a beaming Alison said: "Well I think you've just told the whole world", before laughing raucously.
