Naked ambition!

Laura has appeared naked at several climate change protests in the last month and amassed a following of 17,000 on Instagram.

She calls herself @climate[bleep] on Twitter.

What happened when she appeared on This Morning?

Holly Willoughby passed Laura some cards before the camera came on.

A large sign that read ‘No more empty target’ covered Laura’s modesty.

Phil and Holly asked her to explain why she used nudity to draw attention to the environmental crisis facing the planet.

She said: “I protest topless to help save the planet.”

Laura said  she’d rather not be naked but people don’t listen to her so she’s showing even more flesh than usual.

People have said, ‘You’ve got so many rolls on your body I don’t want to have to see that’

Phillip Schofield asked Laura what she thought about Insulate Britain.

They are a different climate protest and brought the M25 to a standstill on multiple occasions in recent weeks.

She said she wished to remain ‘neutral’  before adding they  ‘should be held responsible for their actions’.

But many of those tuning in seemed preoccupied with the fact Amherst didn’t have ‘a stitch on’ for the appearance.
