Viewers shocked after Katie Price comments on Holly Willoughby's weight

Ouch.

Today's episode of This Morning was an eventful one as co-presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield linked in with the Loose Women ladies to see what was coming up on the afternoon show.

The chat show panel which included Ruth Langsford and Katie Price explained there were a couple of topics planned including the rather unusual combination of Christmas cake and cheese.

It was what came next that really surprised viewers for the mother of five went on to say that Holly should try the cake because she's "losing far too much weight".

Holly chose not to respond to this remark and instead she and Phillip thanked the ladies for their time.

However, viewers didn't hold back on their feelings and took to Twitter to criticise Katie for commenting on Holly's weight.

As you can see from the above tweets, people were far from impressed with Katie's words and some even suggested she should apologise to Holly.

However, when Loose Women did kick off, it was a difficult one for Katie as she had hoped to discuss her mum's illness, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, but found it too difficult to talk about on air.

Katie was hoping to raise awareness of the terminal lung condition after the news of Keith Chegwin's death yesterday, with the comedian fighting a long-term battle with the same illness.

However, as she started to talk, Katie was overcome with emotion as she told people watching at home how the condition is incurable and her mum is "getting worse".

Finding it too difficult to carry on, she left her seat helped by fellow panellist Ruth Langsford.
