Starting out as a radio presenter, Alison moved to television and quickly became the queen of lifestyle programming. She was a stand-in presenter for Richard and Judy on This Morning for four years, and has presented plenty of her own shows too - making her the perfect host for QVC.
Alison's distinctive voice is often heard on advert and railway passenger information voice-overs. She's also turned her hand to writing drama and programme ideas for TV. When she's not working, Alison loves spending time with her three children. Alison was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2011.
