ITV This Morning has come under fire with viewers and been flooded with criticism today.
The complaints from fans watching from 10am until midday came relating to the Tilly Ramsay coverage.
Alison Hammond addressed Steve Allen’s comments about Tilly being “chubby”.
The LBC radio DJ referenced Tilly during a segment on his show on Wednesday.
The daughter of Gordon Ramsay reacted with fury – as BBC Strictly Come Dancing stars flocked to support her.
Julia Hartley-Brewer was tasked with addressing Steve’s comments during a debate with Alison today.
As Alison and Dermot O Leary defended Tilly, Julia opted to back Steve.
And her opinion was met with horror and fury from those watching.
Julia responded: “I’m not entirely sure her weight is relevant to the TV show she’s doing.
“I used to work with Steve and he is brutal about absolutely everyone, but he’s entitled to say what he wants to say.
“I don’t know why people get themselves in such a tizz about it.
“I don’t want people to be censored and not being allowed to discuss things.
“This is not a comment on Tilly herself, but the issue is weight and teenage girls is a major concern to doctors.”

Hayley Hickman fumed: “#ThisMorning the way they are discussing and justifying the comments made about Tilly Ramsey are shameful. She is 19 and the conversation was not about her appearance he mentioned it with no relevance to the conversation what so ever. It’s bullying!!! #TillyRamsay #LBC”
Rich Goodall tweeted: “Julia Hartley Brewer’s spraffing her usual shit again, I notice. #ThisMorning”
Niamh wrote: “#ThisMorning Julia, NO ONE is entitled to voice their opinion of someone else’s body on national radio. No one.”
