Alison Hammond has a duty to speak to ITV about racist trolling talks


Alison Hammond is in charge of foster meetings after racially trolling over her replacement for Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that morning.

The 45-year-old television presenter is said to have problems coping with the "vitriol" she received online.

It has led the broadcaster to step in to ensure she “stays positive” in the face of racist abuse online.

The meetings take place after prior criticism of ITV for its aftercare, after cases involving the Love Island and Jeremy Kyle shows.

MailOnline comments have been sent to Alison since it was announced that she and Dermot O & # 39; Leary Eamonn and Ruth's traditional Friday slot will be taking over.

Confirmed: Alison Hammond is reportedly in charge of grooming meetings over gruesome trolling news that morning replacing Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford (pictured with her new co-host, Dermot O'Leary).

In addition to racist abuse, there have also been unsubstantiated comments about whether she meets the standard of the moderators whose role she takes on.

ITV is extremely cautious about mental health after a string of tragedies from guests or hosts of some of its most popular shows.

Former Love Island candidates Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis and host Caroline Flack all died of suicide.

The station's previous hit, The Jeremy Kyle Show, was also permanently taken off the air after a guest on the show was believed to have committed suicide.

It is understood that duties of care – like Alison's – are not uncommon for the broadcaster's program listing. It is not known whether Dermot, Eamonn, or Ruth were offered to them.

In June 2019, ITV General Manager Carolyn McCall signed a charter of due diligence outlining her commitment.

It said: "We want to make sure that working at or with ITV is a happy, safe and productive work environment and we will endeavor to review and improve our systems and processes."

Insiders told The Sun, “Alison is a tough cookie, but she couldn't ignore the vitriol of some so-called This Morning fans.

& # 39; Due to the Love Island and Jeremy Kyle tragedies, ITV takes due diligence very seriously and has sat down with Alison to see how she is doing. Alison confided that while Friday's gig is a dream come true, it is a struggle to stay positive.

She received advice on how to stay mentally strong and was prepared for what to expect after the announcement was confirmed. Now Alison is determined to leave the drama and prove to everyone why she deserved this job. & # 39;

MailOnline has approached ITV and Alison representatives for comment.

The replacement was officially confirmed on Monday. An announcement revealed that 60-year-old show veterans Eamonn and Ruth, who have been presenting This Morning for the last 14 years, will be downgraded to host ITV favorites over the holidays.

The new presenters will begin their coveted new jobs on January 8th, joining a cast that includes lead presenters Phillip, 58, and Holly, 39.

Alison, 45, broke her silence over the shock after weeks of speculation, saying in a statement, “I never thought I'd be there 19 years later when I first started at This Morning – initially for a few months .

"I really care about the show and the people who see it. So it's a great privilege and an honor to do a show that I adore so much." I'm just very excited to be doing more of what I love besides the beautiful dermat. "

47-year-old co-host Dermot shared his own statement: “I am deeply excited and honored to be joining the This Morning team next year. We have huge shoes to fill and we are well aware of what a privilege it is to step into them.

"Most of all, we want to have fun and start your weekend with a smile, especially considering the year we've all had."

In an interview held before the shake was revealed, Alison claimed that only main presenters Holly and Phillip Schofield are friends off camera.

The TV personality who attended Ruth and Eamonn's 2010 wedding told The Sun: "We're not on top of each other, you know what I mean?

“Phillip and Holly are on vacation together. They really love each other, in a brother and sister way.

“But literally when we're done everyone wants to go home to their families and see them. We did it just right I think. But no, they all go and do their own thing. & # 39;
