ITV This Morning's Alison Hammond shares what kind of man she likes as she's newly single

Alison Hammond has shared what kind of man she prefers.

The former Big Brother star has been stepping in to fill the shoes of Phillip Schofield following his absence on This Morning this week. While on the ITV show she opened up to co-host Holly Willoughby about what kind of man she likes.

One of the topics of discussion were if men with small feet make better lovers. Reading off a card, Alison explained: "Women think men with small feet are better lovers as those who take a size seven come out on top in the bedroom, if you know what I mean."

She added: "Now this is a new survey with 4,500 being asked to reveal the shoe size of their lovers. 23% said that size seven measured up the best."

Talking about her own preferences, Alison continued: "Now it's so funny, because I do like a short man and that's probably the reason why!"

It comes as the 48-year-old presenter has recently confirmed that she is single, despite rumours of her being engaged. It was reported in February that the ITV star was engaged to her boyfriend of two years as confirmed by her soon-to-be father-in-law. Colin Hawkins told MailOnline that Alison and his son, Ben, have already "proposed to one another".

Despite the engagement rumours, Alison previously said she was single earlier this month as she was eyeing up a new programme dubbed "the middle-aged Love Island". Dermot O'Leary said: “ITV is looking for vibrant single parents across the UK", to which Alison laughed and replied: “Well I am single, I'm single!”
