In other news, Alison recently revealed that she is currently dating someone and opened up about the struggles of dating as a single parent, especially now that her son Aidan is an adult.

"I think it's more difficult now because he is more verbal now that he is older," she admitted on the Parenting Hell podcast.

"He'll want to know who this person is and he'll want to meet them. It's a lot harder, because he'll want to know that this guy is treating me well."

She added: "There are moments where I think, 'Who's the parent here?' I do feel that sometimes. It's nice though because it's like I've got somebody always there protecting me, looking over me."

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV.
