Holly Willoughby caught up in This Morning race row

How did a segment on BABIES become so controversial?

| Updated:

We don’t think Holly ever expected this to come from her hospital segment on This Morning.

The bubbly blonde has got herself embroiled in a shocking race row while presenting live from St Thomas’s Hospital.

Yes, the angelic Holly!

The ITV daytime show host was chatting to new mums while Phillip Schofield presented alone from the studio.

A very broody Holly introduced viewers to Amber, who had just given birth to Jeremiah earlier in the day at 2.32am.

Shortly after, she moved on to baby Neelan, and asked his proud father how the labour process went.

Unfortunately, there were a few This Morning viewers that got really annoyed because they assumed none of the babies were born to parents originally from the UK.

One said: “Check their passports, esp the first ones”

Another added, “Any British babies or?”

What is most shocking is the next comment: “All kids f**king foreign #thismorning”

A fifth viewer added: “#thismorning all the immigrants having chavvies.”

It looks like a lot of viewers just wanted to start a row out of nothing because there were plenty of English couples on the show too.

Holly had a lot of fun cuddling up to all of the gorgeous newborns.

The mum-of-three was holding baby Neelan, while joking to Phil: “You’ve basically lost me, I’m never coming back!”
