Alison and Aidan have a very close bond and in an exclusive interview with HELLO!, she spoke about their connection. "Aidan is my twin who was born 30 years after me. Our personalities are very similar. I'm so proud of the kind young man he's turned into," she explained.

The star went on to say: "I'm proud of the person he is, how kind he is. He's a lovely, chilled out young man. When other people come up to me and say: 'Your son is so lovely', I think 'Yes, I've done my job'."

The mother-and-son duo are so close

But Alison does have regrets over her family choices. She admitted: "My one wish would be that I'd had more children. I wish I'd had another three back then. I would totally consider adoption in the future.

"I've got so much more love to give – I don't think I'm done with one child, I'm just not. Aidan has already got two sisters and a brother from his dad's side, who he still sees."
