This Morning viewers were left disgusted by female guest with underarm hair
This Morning viewers were left disgusted by a female guest who revealed she had not shaved her underarm hair in 5 years.
Many viewers did not agree with the woman’s decision, saying it was “basic hygiene” to shave.
Comedian, Kate Smurthwaite, showed off her armpit hair on live TV leaving fans of the show outraged.
Hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford asked the comedian why she didn’t shave with her replying, “I haven’t shaved my armpits for about 5 years now. I think you should do whatever makes you happy.”
“But we live in a society where female body hair is considered disgusting. A 12 year-old gets a bit of natural body hair and suddenly thinks something is wrong.”
She continued, “I think we need to change that. Some of us have felt the need to take a stand.”
Kate appeared on the show alongside WAG Lizzie Cundy who argued that women choosing not to shave their body hair was an unhygienic choice that could affect them in various aspect of their lives- a view that many viewers shared.

@thismorning It’s gross and unhygienic on both men and women! Can’t stand armpit hair on men either!
