‘I always say a day is wasted without laughter . . .’

Alison Hammond loves to laugh. And the nation laughs with her. Her sunny personality and zest for life have brought joy to millions and made her one of the UK’s best-loved television presenters. Known for her hilarious and unforgettable interviews with Hollywood A-listers, Alison is also responsible for countless classic moments of broadcasting gold – from getting stuck on a caravan door to delivering Christmas cash dressed as an elf.

But who is Alison Hammond really, and how did she become the personality we know and love? Shaped by the influence of her incredible mum, Alison went from small roles on television shows as a youngster to that life-changing appearance on Big Brother, before landing her dream job on This Morning. And through it all, she found the joy in every day, the positives in any situation.

You’ve Got to Laugh gives a never-before-seen insight into Alison’s life: her loves, her losses – with a side order of gossip. As well as being a hugely entertaining and uplifting read, Alison’s story will inspire you to grab life with both hands and make the most of every single moment.
