This Morning viewers left 'disturbed' over Samantha the sex robot's 'family mode'

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were joined by Arran Squire who is a co-creator of the sex robot called Samantha on This Morning.

Explaining his decision to create her, the guest revealed: “A sex robot is not to replace people and we’re not trying to replace women. It’s used as a supplement to help people, I believe it can do that – it helps people enhance their relationships.”

Arran went on to list an array of functions and revealed that she can talk, interact and even tell people she loves them – while gushing that he finds her beautiful. 

To which Phil asked was it not like making love to a “car GPS” and that she was “cold like a corpse”.

However, the two guests and viewers were left stunned when Arran revealed that Samantha has a “family mode”. 

To which Holly remarked: “Oh no, don’t, she doesn’t?”

While Phil added: “What, she’s going to read the kids a bedtime story?”

Arran went on to explain that Samantha can talk about animals, philosophy, science and she has 1000 jokes.

Even Arran’s wife defended Samantha and added: “Yes I am, [happy] completely. We as women, I’m not offended to have her around, I’m not worried she might be replacing me – not at all. She is someone there as a family member.”

However, viewers were left “disturbed” over the robot and especially its family mode. 

One person said: “Introducing a sex doll into a home with young children is quite disturbing, even if switched onto “family” mode.  #ThisMorning.”

A different user put: “A sex doll with a ‘family mode’ – I am mortified!! #ThisMorning.”
