In addition, a fifth said: “Look at the annoying Clodagh swigging from a bottle and then pouring the rest of it into a stew.”


Another tweeted: “Stop necking the stout Clodagh it’s making you loopy #ThisMorning.”

Meanwhile, others poked fun at Clodagh for acting drunk during the segment.

They added: “@thismorning has Clodagh been drinking? She is just a little bit full of herself today. It makes for an uncomfortable viewing experience.”
