However, the ITV host was subjected to awful comments from fans with many telling her to ‘stop brainwashing’ children.

One wrote: “Leave kids alone, stop brainwashing them. Let them be children. This is disgusting.”

Another threatened to never watch This Morning again and said: "I won’t be watching this morning anymore, I won’t shop in marks and Spencer’s anymore, I won’t buy garnier anymore.

"Holly don’t you dare preach about this! So disgusted in you."

Despite online trolls targeting her, she has not removed the post and it has garnered more and more support.
