Alison Hammond ‘in regular duty of care meetings’ with ITV bosses after trolling

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.

“As a result of Love Island and Jeremy Kyle tragedies, ITV are very serious about duty of care and arranged to sit down with Alison to see how she was coping.

“Alison confided that while the Friday gig is her dream come true, staying positive had become a battle.”

The insider added that Alison was advised on how to stray strong mentally and prepared for what might happen after the news was confirmed this week.

I hope I can make you all proud ! I’m thrilled to have been given this incredible opportunity . Bring on 2021 !! @thismorning”
