A guest on This Morning has been slammed for his homophobic and transphobic comments.

Tradesman Jamie Richardson joined Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on the sofa of the TV show today (July 26) ito join a discussion about men taking their tops off in public.

Richardson – who attended the ITV show without a top on and showed off his tattoos including one about England winning the World Cup – got into a heated debate with guest Liz Brewer who argued that he was an “exhibitionist”.

However, Richardson went on to argue that why are they talking about men going topless in public when there are “transgender people and men marrying men”.

He said: “I’ll be honest with you now in this day and age, you’ve got transgender people, men marrying men, men going to the same toilet as women and we’re talking about a man after he’s been at graft all day.

“If I want to walk down the street and take me t-shirt off – I work hard and pay my taxes. I’m English and I’m proud to be English.”

Understandably, his argument didn’t sit well with viewers at home to took to Twitter to slam the tattooed bigot and his comments.
