The low transverse momentum threshold of the central barrel gives ALICE a unique opportunity to study the low mass sector of central production at the LHC. First analysis results of meson production in double gap events in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV and in PbPb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 2.76 TeV are presented.
