Eamonn Holmes compared This Morning health expert Dr Zoe’s hair to that of an alpaca on Thursday’s show. Dr Zoe was on the show to present the latest health updates for the viewers, when Eamonn commented on her appearance. His remarks led to a huge backlash online with many calling for him to be dropped by ITV.

Eamonn thanked Zoe for her introduction and said: “Your hair reminds me of an alpaca today, you just want to pet it, don’t you?”

“It’s very alpaca-ish,” he remarked.

Laughing awkwardly, Zoe replied: “Don’t touch my hair!”

Ruth interjected: “Yeah don’t touch the hair! Thank you Zoe see you later.”

Viewers were outraged at Eamonn’s comment and quickly turned to Twitter to express their anger towards the presenter.
