Although not naming the mystery man whom she met online, she could have been referring to Jamie Savage.

The Brummie-born TV star met security guard Jamie through a dating website and got engaged to him in 2014 before calling time on the romance in 2017.

Last week, Alison shared with her fans a rare photo of her cab driver ex husband.

The presenter posted a picture of Noureddine Boufaied while she was taking part in a TikTok challenge where users show a photo of their child and their parents. 

The former couple share son Aidan, now 16, who also appeared in the post as she told how she was ‘so proud’ of him as they posed at the Pride of Britain Awards.   

Posting the TikTok of him, captioned ‘our son’, she wrote: ‘Aidan is certainly here ! I have no idea where that confidence comes from.’

Alison was married to the cab driver from Manchester and found out she was pregnant shortly after appearing on the third series of Big Brother.

It is not clear why they split.
