This Morning fans hit out at the show’s decision to air a live DNA test with Jeremy McConnell following the birth of Stephanie Davis’ baby boy Caben Albi. 

Some compared the show to Jeremy Kyle, and slammed it as ‘tacky’ and ‘appalling’. 

One fan said: “Very sad for this baby when his life becomes entertainment for others to gawp at.”

Others were also quick to jump in, saying: “Tacky – a serious issue being exploited. What are your producers thinking?!”

Kim Woodburn’s explosive rant

She proved a controversial CBB contestant, and appearing on This Morning to talk about her experience on the hit Channel 5 series, Kim got rather riled up by Phil’s tongue in cheek interview technique as he grilled her over her behaviour.

As Kim opened up about being “gang handed” and the “bullies” in the house, the TV presenter called her out and called it “exaggeration” as she “said worse”.  

However, the 74-year-old was NOT happy about this and shot back with: “No, I’m sorry you weren’t there to know where you Phil?!”

The interview ended with Kim Woodburn calling Phillip Schofield a “big phoney!” 

Controversial claims 

In one of the show’s biggest spats, Noel Edmonds and Phillip Schofield rowed on Twitter following Noel’s VERY controversial appearance on This Morning.

Presenter Noel felt he had been given a hard time on This Morning while talking about his prostate cancer and his claims that negativity can trigger the disease.

Following the interview, 67-year-old Noel wrote on Twitter to his 67,000 followers: “Phil, if you are unlucky enough to be seriously ill, I promise I wont be so callous and I will show you respect, sympathy and compassion.”
