Alison studied drama in Manchester alongside Cold Feet actor John Thompson. After she graduated, it was 10 years before she actually got any work. During that time she worked in the music business, in advertising and as a barmaid.

Alison's big break came during a two episode stint for Bad Girls where she played the deadly Renee Williams. A year later, executive producer Brian Park was casting for a new and different character for his new show Footballers Wives and remembered what an impact Alison when she appeared in Bad Girls.
