“You people deserve to have to watch morning TV. It is both your crime and your punishment.”

Whereas a third jumped in to praise Cat with: “Woah – everyone hating on Cat Deeley for… wait… being too nice and happy? Wtf is up with people? #bekind lasted well didn’t it.

“Looking at some of the women slating CD – they mourned the loss of Caroline Flack whilst watching her documentary only days ago.”

And a fourth user shared: “Right, let’s get this straight. Cat Deeley has been presenting TV shows for near enough 25 years so she must be doing something right.

“Also, it’s morning TV she is presenting, not a bloody funeral march – happiness and joy are allowed. All those moaning, get a grip of yourselves.”

Meanwhile, Cat seems unbothered by any criticism.

She gushed her on Twitter over how much she enjoyed Monday, and said her children loved it too.

On the episode she was in near tears as Adam Henson delivered Easter lambs.

In fact, Cat tweeted: “Thank you for all your lovely comments! So fun @reallorraine

“#lorraine ….. first question when I got home? ‘When can we go to the farm?? Today??'”
