The 45-year-old television star has become This Morning's newest host alongside Dermot O'Leary, with the pair replacing married couple Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes.

In the snap, that Alison shared with her 340,000 Twitter followers, the presenter unveiled a stunning array of pink and yellow roses.
The flowers also came with a personalised message for Alison.
"Thanks @hollywills so kind," Alison wrote alongside the caption.

Alison and Dermot were enlisted as the new Friday morning presenters after Eamonn and Ruth were dramatically axed from the show last year after 14 years.
Instead, the former presenters will now only be used for holiday cover instead of their usual Friday slot.
The married couple were said to be "blindsided" by their replacement, and have also criticised people working in the television industry over the decision.
