Alison Hammond confirms Holly Willoughby This Morning return
This Morning host Alison Hammond was allegedly “flattered” after Love Island bosses approached her son Aiden for the summer ITV series.
Her 18-year-old son was asked to join the line-up following the success of contestants with famous parents such as Danny Dyer and Michael Owen.
A source told The Sun: “Alison was flattered but Aiden has turned it down.
“Producers know that contestants with a famous parent are a huge hit.”
Alison therefore narrowly missed out on appearing in the iconic “meet the parents” episode.
She previously revealed Aiden never watches TV and doesn’t even tune in to watch her presenting.
Earlier this year Aiden celebrated his 18th birthday and Alison paid tribute to him in an emotional social media post.
Taking to Instagram she said: “Well that was a night to remember!!! 48/18 thanks to everyone who came to share our beautiful birthday night, both Aidan and I felt very loved.

“I raised a Child for 18 years and he’s now an Adult, Wow I’m so emotional but it’s all happy emotion. I’m gonna sit back now and enjoy my birthday.” [Sic]
The party was attended by some of her celebrity friends and This Morning presenters, including Holly Willoughby, Carol Vorderman, Josie Gibson and Dermot O’Leary.
In another Instagram post, Aidan was seen with Gok Wan, who was DJ for the night.
Aiden is on Instagram and he has already gained plenty of attention despite sharing only four posts.
He would undoubtedly have been a huge hit on Love Island, following in the footsteps of contestants like Dani Dyer and Gemma Owen.
The official line-up for the 2023 summer series is yet to be announced but some interesting names have already been thrown into the mix.
The rumoured line-up includes fashion designer Andre Furtado and Molly Marsh, who is the daughter of Coronation Street star Janet Marsh.
Other names on the rumour mill include model and influencer, Chloe Baker.
Express.co.uk has contacted ITV for a comment.
Love Island is expected to return to ITV later in June.
