Now it has been revealed that the ITV breakfast show received 2,077 complaints for the episode, with concerned fans reporting it in their droves.

Dominique argued at the time: “I think that most people will be worrying about clawing their businesses and their mental health back from the depths of hell.

“Not whether or not they are going to segregate someone from a dinner party.”

She also slammed treating people differently for their lifestyle choices, calling it “controlling”.

Another wrote: “This is divisive, and disgusting.”

A third asked at the time: “Whatever happened to freedom of choice?”
