What did you miss?

Lorraine Kelly was under fire on Tuesday as viewers accused her of “body shaming” Nigel Farage after she discussed his looks and age on her daytime show, saying: "You get the face you deserve."

In the outdoor jungle shower, Farage went naked - much to the shock of his campmate Josie Gibson as well as cheeky hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.

Discussing the moment on her show, Kelly quipped "you get the face you deserve" when speaking about the I'm A Celeb contestant's looks and age with Edwina Curry on the daytime ITV show.

What, how and why?

Also, the TV presenter couldn’t hide her disbelief at Farage's age during the discussion.

Curry said: "He's in there because he thinks he can enhance his reputation... Perhaps he's only 59, he's got plenty of years ahead of him."

In a cutting response, Kelly said: “God is he? Is he only 59?! I thought he was a hell of a lot older than that. That is astonishing. You get the face you deserve, thankfully. You really do.”

When Curry brought up the shower scene, Kelly complained: "I could do without that. We saw a bit too much of Nigel. Here's some more... Oh jeez!

"It's quite good because it's quite far away. It could have been worse, he could have turned around."

Social media was awash with comments criticising the daytime TV star for “body shaming” him.

Among the comments, one fan wrote: ““Is he only 59? You get the face you deserve”. With 3 women laughing. I guess body shaming men is fine isn’t it Lorraine until a woman’s weight is mentioned.”

Others added: “Discussing @Nigel_Farage on @lorraine regarding his looks, his body and his age. If that were 2 men discussing a woman in the same distasteful way there would be an uproar! Do better @lorraine.

“LOL. Lorraine has fat shamed women before and said one young women looked like a man. She has always been a nasty piece of work. Nigel Farage is a nicer person then Lorraine Kelly.”

“Lorraine You really are an awful little woman. Saying about Nigel Farage you get the face you deserve. Well the same could be said about you.”

During Monday's I'm A Celeb, Gibson was stunned when she saw the politician's bare bottom.

She admitted in a piece to camera: "I wasn't expecting to see Nigel Farage's bottom. I've seen worse."

Then she added: "No I haven't! Fair play to him. He's not shy, he gets on in there. At least he's clean."

Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly also had a hilarious reaction to the moment playing out on everyone's screens.

McPartlin screamed: "NOOOO!" He added: "It burned into my brain. Wow, wow, wow."

Donnelly couldn't resist taking it further by joking that if Farage had turned around everyone would have seen his "honourable member".

McPartlin hit back: "I never wanted to think of it!"

What else happened on Lorraine?

Kelly also interviewed Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola, who were fresh from their weekend at Blackpool for Strictly Come Dancing.
