The TV presenter, 46, has revealed how an interview with one of her idols, Matt Damon, prompted her to make a life-changing decision.
But she admits the surgery resulted in physical issues and said she was having trouble keeping anything on.
The This Morning host, who became a household name after appearing on Big Brother in 2002, spoke candidly about the 2007 interview and the aftermath that followed.
Alison explained that she was interviewing actor Matt in preparation for Bourne’s third film titled The Bourne Ultimatum.
Halfway through the conversation, she noticed her chair was a bit tight, but she continued the conversation normally.
However, she explained in an excerpt from her new book published in The Sun, how the chair suddenly broke due to her weight.
She called the incident a “horrible and shameful moment”.
“My girth had broken the chair while I was interviewing Matt Damon, one of my idols,” she wrote. “I was mortified. I wanted the world to swallow me. “
She confessed that she had turned bright red in her face when Matt asked if she was okay, but she took the moment lightly despite her embarrassment.
Alison said she made the star laugh when she ripped the arm off the chair and threw it to the floor to continue their discussion.
And despite her wanting to cry, she laughed at the incident and continued their conversation.
She went on to say that the producer called the moment “so funny”.
“But I was mortified,” she said. “If you don’t mind, don’t show this part on TV,” I said. “
It was then that she decided to have the operation because she “didn’t want to be fat anymore”.
Unfortunately, although Alison said the operation was a physical success at first, she explained that she was not mentally prepared for what was to come.
She described the “absolute torture” she felt before the group was “rejected” by her body as she began to fall ill.
After two years of having the ring, Alison went to her surgeon to have the ring removed.
She added that it took the surgeon an hour and a half instead of the normal 15 minute procedure to remove the band because the scar tissue had grown around mine so thick it was squeezing my stomach in the middle. point where she couldn’t eat anything. .
While having the group she says she only lost one stone and explains how she now feels better about herself and looks at herself in the mirror to think “I’m beautiful, man”.
