This Morning presenter Alison Hammond fought back tears as she discussed her own experience of obesity during a phone conversation with Dear Deidre.

The 47-year-old got emotional on the morning ITV talk show as she explained: “It’s so hard, people don’t realize it.

“People look down on people just because they’re so tall, and they really can’t help it.

“I’ve had obesity all my life and what it is is your regulatory system is out of whack.

“You can’t control whether you want to eat all the time and I think people often don’t realize that obesity is a disease and you can’t help but want to eat all the time.

“When you’re in it’s really difficult because you want to eat and you want all the bad things and you know you don’t look good, I’m sorry it really touches me.”

Hammond battled her emotions and urged the NHS to treat obesity as a disease as so many people are turning to surgery to help “because we don’t know what to do”.

Later in the show, co-host Dermot O’Leary called Hamond an “inspiration” and said he was “very proud” of her for speaking out about her experiences.

On her emotional reaction to the discussion, Hammond added, “I felt like watching the show, that’s what happened, I was in the moment.

“But when you grow up it’s tough, people think you’re lazy and stuff and you eat a lot of food.

“It just got to me and I felt like I was home and watching the show and I lost it.”
