This Morning is no stranger to getting backlash for some of its segments, and today (April 13) it was hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford who came under fire from viewers for 'mocking' guest Martina Big.

Glamour model Martina appeared on the show to discuss her cosmetic procedures, which include tanning injections and breast implants.

But viewers took issue with some of the comments made by the hosts, especially as the interview segment followed an update on This Morning's 'Be Kind' campaign which promotes anti-bullying.

"Do you not like that girl?" Eamonn asked when showing a photo of Martina before her cosmetic enhancements, later adding, "So you think you've got better looking?" after his guest explained she liked to enhance her body.

"Can we stand?" Eamonn said at another point, referring to Martina's 32S bust size. "And you can balance there OK?

"If you're going to tip over, just hold onto me, OK?"

Their comments and manners throughout the interview led some viewers to complain about the apparent hypocrisy of the show, slamming This Morning for the link between the two segments.

And while some viewers weren't too happy with the interview style, other were more concerned with Martina herself.

During the interview, Martina explained that she always wanted to have a brown, holiday tan and added that she'd always admired the glamour model shape.

"When I was younger," she said, "I admired the curves of Pamela Anderson and the bum size of Katie Price."

Viewers then tweeted to share their own opinions of Martina's beauty choices, ranging from concerned to a more laissez-faire 'let her do what she wants' attitude:

This Morning airs on ITV weekdays at 10.30am.
