What happened on This Morning with Deidre?

In today’s phone-in resident agony aunt Deidre fielded calls from viewers with festive dilemmas.

Brenda from West Yorkshire called in and said: “I’ve got a 96-year-old mum who’s coming over for Christmas Day, and my daughter wants to come [and] see her.”

“Now, she hasn’t been jabbed… she doesn’t believe in it, and I don’t know what to do.”

When host Phillip Schofield asked Brenda if he daughter would take a PCR test, the mum answered no.

Deidre advised Brenda to not put her mum at risk because her daughter is choosing to not test herself.

And viewers agreed, wholeheartedly.

How did viewers react to Brenda’s dilemma?

Brenda’s dilemma captured viewers’ imaginations and they rushed on to Twitter to voice some very strong opinions.

One fumed: “Brenda don’t hesitate, just tell your daughter to give her head a wobble and you’ll see her when she’s less selfish #ThisMorning.”

Another added: “How disrespectful of Brenda’s daughter.

“How would she feel if she was the one to cause her grandmother to become ill #ThisMorning #disrespectful.”

Finally, one viewer commented: “Brenda’s daughter is a selfish cow #ThisMorning.”
