Phillip Schofield slams 'callous' This Morning guest telling people to get a job
This Morning fans were left in shock after guest Beverly Turner commented on the cost of living crisis, which left presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield less than impressed.The show began with the cast on the sofa as they focussed on the top news stories for the day.However, things took a tense turn when Beverly shared her thoughts on the topic of the cost of living.Holly brought up a story about a family who spent time in McDonalds to avoid using electricity, sometimes even brushing their teeth, and Beverly said that she "doesn't think there are that many people" in that situation and urged them to "put it into perspective".Holly quipped: "But someone is. This story hasn't just been made up, this is reality for someone and even if it's just one person, that is terrible."Beverly noted that she sounded "incredibly callous" as she excused her thought process on the "employment shortage".She claimed that the country has "more jobs now that ever before," to which Holly asked her how parents will "pay for childcare".Beverly went on: "If your children are at school all day, I'm sorry, unless you have a mental health problem or a severe illness - in which case I would urge anyone to get help for that - we have cafes, restaurants, shops, everyone is desperate for staff."She claimed that the nation are "queuing like never before" and "everywhere she goes," she "can't get the service".Turner said that there are "jobs out there for people to use" but assured the hosts that she doesn't want to see families living in McDonalds.Phillip then said: "It does sound rather callous because of the mere fact, as Holly said, they're in McDonalds with their kids.
