Alison Hammond posts about ‘tearing others down’ as Ruth Langsford denies row

This Morning ‘s Alison Hammond has posted about “strong people not tearing others down” on social media just days after she was confirmed as a new regular host on the show.

She was reported to be replacing Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, both 60, though ITV have denied this is the case.

Ruth has since denied there is any bad blood between them, after a swipe she made at people who begin their career on reality TV, as Alison, 45, began hers on Big Brother.

A spokesperson for Ruth confirmed that the presenter made the comments weeks before the news about Alison was even announced and denied they were about Alison.

Alison announced that she has just been diagnosed as pre-diabetic

But Alison’s Instagram post may have been in reference to the backlash she has received from angry Ruth and Eamonn fans.

She posted a drawing of a girl being lifted up by a dolphin, with text alongside reading: “Strong people don’t put others down. They lift them up.”

Rumours of tension between Alison and Ruth were exacerbated when Ruth was presenting Loose Women, and cut to the This Morning studio where Alison was presenting alongside Phillip Schofield.

Viewers were convinced she had totally ignored Alison waving at her, and tweeted to say she only talked to Phil and that it left them cringing.

On Wednesday, Alison revealed on This Morning that she had just been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, and begged viewers for help.

“I have had some news, guys, I am willing to share if you’ve got the time,” she told Phil and his co host Holly Willoughby.

“I have found out that I am pre-diabetic, so I really need your help, and I have got to change my ways.

“If you see me out there buying any chocolate or sweets, please, please I am begging you, I am not allowed to have it.

“I’ve got to change my ways, this is serious now, pre-diabetes.”

Phillip told her: “That’s a really brave thing to say, I didn’t think you were going to do that, well done you.”

Alison replied: “There’s a lot of people who are pre-diabetic, and I think it’s important.

“I’ve got a chance to turn it around, it is type 2, so I really want you help, and I need you.”
