CELEBS Go Dating star Alison Hammond has cheekily joked that she’s she’s good in bed after losing weight last year.
The 45-year-old spoke to Closer Magazine about her performance in the bedroom and what she looks for in her dream man.
Alison appeared on the latest series of Celebs Go Dating
The This Morning presenter, was recently spotted looking cosy with audio visual technician and aspiring actor Ben Kusi, who she met on the E4 dating show.
In the past, Alison has boasted about how good she is in bed, saying: “I did Strictly Come Dancing and I was actually quite good. I like my body and I like the way it moves. Yes, I take a bit of extra space, but I can dance and I’m great in bed!”
And when asked by Closer mag if she still stands by her statement, Alison laughed: “Babes, once you’re good in bed, you’re always good in bed. Of course it still stands!”
Alison started her weight loss journey last year – but says that since her mum passed away on 14 February this year, it’s taken a back seat.

Alison previously weighed 20st and is aiming to be 12st and a “size 14 or 16” – but now says: “I’m off it at the moment … there is no weight loss.
“I’m eating the right food and going to the gym and I have a personal trainer. I’m not saying I’m happy with everything – but I’m happy in my own skin.”
Before going on to the Celebs Go Dating, the bubbly TV personality described her dream man: “My dream guy has to be respectful and kind, and he has to be really good at massaging my feet, massaging is quite important.”
“He’s also got to be someone who thinks about me, all the nice qualities I’ve ever wanted. Someone who’s caring and might run my bath for me or cook for me when I get home.”
Alison’s biggest priority is her teenage son Aidan
She is an experienced dater and admitted that she used popular dating apps such as Plenty of Fish and Tinder. Her experiences have been positive but does admit she gets very nervous before meeting a new guy.
“It’s good to get out there and date. I think it’s important; it’s enjoyable. I loved it,” Alison explained.
Despite having fun when meeting and getting to know different people, the Brummie will not introduce anyone to her 13-year-old son Aidan, who she shares with ex Noureddine Boufaied, unless she is absolutely certain they will be hanging around.
“My dream guy is someone who will get on with Aiden. I’m really funny about introducing someone to my son.
Alison enjoyed her time at the celebrity dating agency
“Unless I know someone is sticking around, I won’t introduce him. Aiden has only met one guy I was seeing.”
Alison famously ‘married’ The Rock in a joke wedding on This Morning in 2017, and says that when she gets married again, she wants it to be a huge occasion.
“Without a doubt I want the white wedding and I want the big dress.
“Obviously I’ve had it with The Rock already, but I want it bigger! I want a bigger dress and I want about 25 bridesmaids.
Alison has said she wouldn’t introduce anyone to her son Aidan unless she knew they were here to stay
“I’d have a couple of weddings to be honest – one abroad and one here. And the year after we get married, we’ll probably renew our vows.”
Ahead of her date with Ben on Celebs Go Dating, Alison wanted to be prepared for a potential kiss and practised her kissing technique on Celebs Go Dating agent Anna Williamson.
Things have heated up for the This Morning presenter as she enjoyed a first date making pottery with single Ben Kusi.
She was also spotted linking arms with her new man on a romantic day out after saying she’d “found love”.
The ITV presenter, 45, grinned from ear to ear and giggled with hunk Ben Kusi, 41, as they strolled along the street in London.
