Alison Hammond slammed for being 'insensitive after 'not noticing' £10k missing
This Morning viewers have slammed Alison Hammond for comments she made about not noticing £10,000 going missing from her bank account.
Alison had been chatting to co-host Dermot O’Leary and guests Gyles Brandreth and Carol Vorderman when she made the comment, amid a rising cost of living crisis.
‘So I got my car serviced,’ Alison began, continuing: ‘And I paid for the service and didn’t notice till they phoned me that they charged me £10,000 for the service.
‘I hadn’t checked my bank.’
‘£10,000?!’ a stunned Carol exclaimed, before Alison added: ‘They charged me £10,000 they noticed a month later and phoned me up and said, “We’ve overcharged you. It was £1,000 and we’ve charged you £10,000.”‘
She continued: ‘And I didn’t even notice. But that’s nice that they phoned me back.’
Of course, viewers were pretty stunned at her comments coming at a time when people across the nation are struggling.
One person wrote: ‘How out of touch is #ThisMorning. I didn’t even notice I was charged £10,000 for my service. I noticed I was overcharged £5 last week and I was panicking as being disabled I have to stretch any money I get very thin just to live.’
‘How would you not know 10,000 gone out of your account unbelievable, Alison dropped herself straight in it there!!’ someone else slammed.
Another penned: ‘Absolutely sickening watching Alison Hammond not noticing 10k missing from her account.. People are really scared out there worrying about money, and you show this! Lucky you Alison, having that much money aye?. You couldn’t make this up.. Read the room!!’
