Alison Hammond traumatised after she was branded an ‘elephant’ by bullies

OHMYGOSSIP — Alison Hammond was branded an “elephant” by school bullies, and now she still can’t bear to hear the word.
The ‘This Morning’ presenter has opened up about her trauma, and told of how the cruel jibe gives her heart palpitations at times.
She said: “It may sound crazy but whenever I hear the word ‘elephant’, it takes me back to being at school and the nasty comments the boys used to make about me.”
The 46-year-old star – who shot to fame as a contestant on ‘Big Brother’ in 2002 – admitted the word even got to her when she was on safari.
She said: “When I hear someone say ‘elephant’, I instantly think they must be talking about me. Anything to do with elephants sets it off.
“I remember it happening when I was on safari once. Some elephants came into view and I had heart palpitations because I was worried that someone was going to say, ‘Alison, look! An elephant, like you’.”
The star even suffered when she attended an awards bash and Queen star Brain May used the word, which led her to fear he was talking about her, when he wasn’t.
According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Alison wrote in her new book ‘You’ve Gotta Laugh’: “Suddenly, Brian May said, ‘We’re trying to listen and I can’t hear a word of the singing. Could you keep your noise down?’ We stopped talking. But you know when you’ve been told off and you’re a bit giggly? ‘Oh, my gosh, we just got told off by Brian May from Queen!’
“Things got worse when the band left the stage. Brian May got up to make a speech and started off by saying, ‘Now, there’s an elephant in the room, isn’t there?”
