Alison Hammond hits back at fan who slammed her for flashing 'expensive watch' amid cost of living crisis | The Sun
ALISON Hammond has defended herself after being accused of flashing "a Rolex watch" on This Morning.
A viewer claimed she wore a pricey timepiece, which cost from around £6,000 upwards, on the daytime programme on Monday amid the cost of living crisis.
But Alison, 48, took to Twitter after the show to respond and she cleared up any confusion.
The viewer penned: "I love watching @AlisonHammond but with the cost of living affecting us all, I find it uncomfortable seeing her wearing, what looks like a Rolex."
Alison wrote back after the show: "I wish!!
"It's actually a Micheal Kors Watch my late mum bought me and it cost her £185 of her hard earned money . It means more to me than any Rolex . Sorry you felt uncomfortable."
