Uhoh… People are NOT happy with morning TV presenter Lorraine.
The Scot has been slammed for ‘objectifying men’ by some of her female viewers.
During the TV segment, she introduced the finalist of her ‘Hot Pants’ competition, and giggled her way through it touching and ‘feeling up’ the models.
It was a teeny bit awkward…
The three men, 28-year-old logistics manager Ryan Butler, 39-year-old aspiring writer Jonathan Sutton and 25-year-old scaffolder Mark Anderson, were stood pretty much starkers in their undies and viewers found it to be ‘sexist’.
One user commented on the fact that ‘if it was women we would be outraged.’
Another added: “It would appear that sexism is indeed alive and well. #lorraine hotpants?? Imagine the outcry if these were women… double standards”
At one point Lorraine said: “Look at these smooth babies,” as she stroked one of their chests and added: “The three of you look fantastic.”
Launching the competition in September, Lorraine said: “We’re on the trail for models. You or your other half, your brother, even your dad could be unveiled as the model of a new high profile range of underwear.
“I’m looking forward to all our new campaigns and features this Autumn but especially this one!””
The winner of the competition will get to become the face and body of the newly launched Hammond & Co. underwear range in a campaign for Debenhams. They will also win a two year modelling contract with Unsigned Management.
Lisa Snowdon was part of the judging panel for the competition and said: “Having been a model myself for many years and a presenter on Britain’s Next Top Model, I have experience of what it takes to be a model and be a success in the industry.
“Judging male models in their underwear will be a tough job but I’m happy to do it for Lorraine!”
We bet you are!
