Alison Hammond has sparked rumours that she has split from her boyfriend, only weeks after reportedly getting engaged.

The TV presenter shocked viewers when she appeared to reveal the news on today’s (March 17) installment of This Morning.

Alison made the revelation when she was discussing ITV’s new Love Island style dating show Romance Retreat with co-presenter Dermot O’Leary.

The upcoming reality show, which has been dubbed a “middle-aged Love Island”, will be hosted by Davina McCall. The show will follow a group of middle-aged single parents looking for love.

“Hold on a second, there’s a casting call, Alison,” he told the mum-of-one.

“Hey, well I am single!” Alison then shockingly announced, before going on to joke that she might try her chances on the show.

“I’m single,” she added.

This wasn’t the first time Dermot has let the cat out of the bag.
