Alison Hammond has had This Morning fans in stitches since joining the team in 2003, but now she is being lined up to front her own show.
The 40 year old has interviewed some of Hollywood's biggest names for the show hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, but now is the time for Alison to get the likes of Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson on her own sofa.
According to The Sun, ITV have given the green light for a new hour long chat show called Alison Hammond's Happy Hour, which will see her interview her celebrity pals and other special guests.
Much like This Morning, former Big Brother star Alison's show will also feature makeovers and fun lifestyle segments.
After finding a new found love of fitness in her role as an ambassador for WW (formerly Weight Watchers), the show will also air exercise regimes.
Her friends from This Morning and Loose Women — which she is an occasional panellist on — are already being lined up to appear on the show, the publication goes on to report.
A source told them: "Producers have been increasingly impressed with Alison’s comic timing and prowess at interviewing stars.
"Her down-to-earth and quick-witted personality have made her a hit with viewers and producers think she’s ready for the limelight."
Other guests that could be asked on to the show include the likes of Frankie Bridge, Caroline Flack and Mark Wright, who Alison met on Strictly Come Dancing.
Her I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! campmates Stacey Solomon and Gillian McKeith, and Celebrity MasterChef opponents such as Christopher Biggins and Millie Mackintosh could also make appearances on the programme, expected to air in the afternoons.
Alison has previously given her advice to those who aspire to follow in her footsteps, revealing her tips for charming A-listers.
She said: "Just be yourself. Ask the questions you’re genuinely interested in. And smile."
Her new job comes as some welcome happy news after Alison revealed earlier this week that she had injured herself during a gym workout.
Alison took to Instagram to ask the advice of her fans as she revealed she had been left with a swollen face.
She addressed her 450,000 followers: "7 days ago I did this…," before sharing the moment with her fans.
Posting a screenshot of a video of herself in the gym, Alison wrote: "Yes I slammed my face with a slam ball."
Adding an oversized yellow arrow, she added: "Moment of impact," as a ball is seen hurtling toward her face.
Concerned that she's still feeling the effect of her mishap one week after the incident, she continued to ask fans for their advice on her injury.
She wrote: "Face still killing 7 days after, swollen and very painful… Is this normal?," adding a poll.
An overwhelming 62 per cent of Alison's followers voted to tell her that it wasn't normal, but it is unclear whether she had received advice on how to make herself better.
