Alison Hammond is reportedly having regular “duty of care” meetings with ITV bosses after she was trolled over her new This Morning job.
The former Big Brother star has been appearing on the show for ages, but will soon take over the regular Friday hosting gig from Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford alongside Dermot O’Leary.
While Alison’s fans were delighted with the news, some viciously trolled her for taking the job from the husband and wife duo.
It’s said that the cruel backlash has taken its toll on Alison, so much so that she’s regularly talking to bosses.
A source told The Sun : “Alison is a tough cookie, but the vitriol from some so-called fans of This Morning has been impossible for her to ignore.
Eamonn and Ruth will still host the show in the summer when Holly and Phil take their holiday.
Mirror Online has contacted ITV and Alison’s representatives for comment.
