Inside Alison Hammond’s four-bedroom house, which is worth a whopping £700,000
Alison Hammond put her Birmingham home on the market the same day Phillip Schofield left This Morning.
The popular presenter, 48, has listed her £700,000 home in Solihull in the Midlands, where she has lived with her 18-year-old son Aiden for three years.
The move gives Alison the opportunity to move closer to west London, where the ITV studios are based, should she be given more duties on This Morning.
She is currently hosting the Friday segment with Dermot O’Leary and the two have filled in for Holly Willoughby this week after Phillip left the show in dramatic fashion over the weekend after 21 years at the helm.
The Daily Mail previously reported that Alison is Holly’s favorite to succeed him and that she will take over as one of bookies’ favorites when Holly returns to the show next month.

Wow: Alison showed off her home in a live segment on This Morning back in 2020
A source told The sun: “The timings are completely random, but perhaps meaningful.” Alison loves this house but wants a fresh start. She’s incredibly in demand.
“It is very likely that she will be asked to work more days a week for This Morning – and as a result she will be spending more time in London.”
Alison’s accommodation in Birmingham has a hot tub, dining room and open plan spacious kitchen, as well as a huge garden.
She moved in during lockdown in 2020 and previously presented her new home to the admiring Phillip and Holly live on This Morning.
The presenter appeared live from her living room, which features a wall covered in memorabilia from her television career, a sleek white dining table and large mirrors
It was launched on Thursday as ITV bosses held emergency talks with Phillip over his exit before he left the show for good on Saturday.
Alison is clearly a rising star on TV, having been announced as the new presenter for the Great British Bake Off in March.
She first became a household name when she appeared on Big Brother in 2002. She later revealed that this decision was because she wanted to pay off her “traumatizing debts.”

Despite her humble beginnings, Alison hosted the biggest night in British film, co-hosting the BAFTAs with Richard E. Grant.
She has also starred in other reality TV shows including 2010’s I’m A Celebrity, 2014’s Celebrity Masterchef and Celebrity Fit Club.
In 2023, the TV star’s net worth is estimated at between £2million and £4million – a far cry from the days when she was struggling to make ends meet.
In a statement released on Saturday, Phillip said: “I’ve always prided myself on covering fascinating stories on This Morning.” But recently, This Morning has become history itself.
“Throughout my career in television – including the very difficult last few days – I have always tried my best to be honorable and kind.
“I understand that ITV has decided the current situation cannot continue and I want to do what I can to protect the show I love.”
“As a result, I have agreed to step down from This Morning, effective immediately, in the hope that the show can see a bright future.”
“I’d like to thank everyone who has supported me – especially the amazing viewers of This Morning – and see you at the Soap Awards next month.”
