Here’s everything we know about Alison Hammond’s new ITV podcast, My Life In TV.
Alison Hammond is an icon.
Ever since she burst onto our screens as a contestant on the third series of Big Brother in 2002, the nation has fallen in love with her infectious laugh and ability to find mischief in any situation.
That’s why she went on to become one of the most recognisable faces (and Brummy voices) in daytime television, hosting segments of ITV’s award-winning This Morning.
Who can forget that interview with Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling?
And there was the time she accidentally pushed a sailor into the river while presenting the weather map.
Then, there are the numerous “dates” she has enjoyed with Hugh Jackman.
Most recently, we saw a more serious side to Hammond, when she shared her voice in the global discussion around George Floyd’s death and the Black Lives Matter movement.
So it’s no surprise that earlier this week Hammond confirmed that she and Dermot O’Leary will replace This Morning’s Friday presenters, Ruth Lansford and Eamonn Holmes, in future episodes of the daily show.
And, just days after that exciting announcement was shared, Hammond has just shared another new project.
Hammond will host a new ITV podcast called My Life In TV.
Sharing the artwork on her Instagram, she explained that she will use the podcast to “delve into the fave telly moments and memories of famous faces including actor and presenter Emily Atack, TV host and comedian Joel Dommett, The Voice presenter AJ Odudu, comedian Mo Gilligan and TV personality Olivia Attwood.”
