Sunday Brunch welcomed comedian and writer Jenny Eclair into the studio today.
She was chatting to hosts Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer about her new book: Older and Wiser: A Survivor’s Guide to the Menopause.
But her appearance divided viewers of the Sunday morning show. Many were thrilled to see her and felt she was a breath of fresh air.
However, others found her chat a bit uncomfortable – and thought Tim and Simon didn’t look particularly at ease.
Jenny talked to the hosts about menopause for a while – even joking she was talking for them because she had a lot more to say on the subject than they did.
They then had to cut her off for a cooking segment.
When they came back to her and she continued to talk about her experiences and read out an extract of her book.

Well done Jenny on speaking about the Menopause..its such a taboo subject and most men doesn’t think it exists..looking forward to reading the book.

However, others watching from their sofas weren’t so impressed.
One even called the interview “sheer agony” and another wasn’t happy with them for cutting a cooking segment short to return to Jenny.
I bet Lovejoy’s teeth are gritted more than British roads in the winter. All this chat from a female guest, and it’s not about sport. #SundayBrunch

So what is meant to be a show about food, an actual chef is hurried and rushed off to go back to some woman talking about HRT…. #SundayBrunch

What else happened on Sunday Brunch today?
Tim and Simon also chatted to Jimmy Doherty via video link.
Meanwhile, viewers weren’t impressed by the DJ who closed the show.
They felt his performance was lacklustre and cringworthy.
