Alison Hammond has admitted that she’s hit ‘rock bottom’ amid her obesity battle.
The much-loved This Morning star, 46, has gotten candid about her struggle to shift the pounds, admitting that she’s finding it incredibly difficult to move away from the vicious cycle which she cannot ‘claw’ herself out of.
Back in 2019, the bubbly TV star made a vow to overhaul her lifestyle after she tipped the scales at 20 stone.
Despite her best efforts, two years later, Alison finds herself in the same place, unable to shift the weight she so desperately wants to lose.
Alison candidly lifted the lid on her weight loss journey during Friday’s instalment of This Morning.

Back in 2016, Alison revealed that her dream is to weigh 12 stone.
The star told Bella Magazine at the time: “My poor body might not be able to cope for much longer, so I have to help it out by taking weight off.
“I’d love to weigh 12 stone. That’s the ideal weight for my height – I’m 5ft 9in.
“But if I got to 15 stone and around a size 14 to 16, I’d be over the moon.”
