Lorraine sparks Ofcom fury as fans accuse show of ‘mocking’ breast milk art
ITV show Lorraine has been hit with 69 new Ofcom complaints.
Angry TV viewers slammed the 5th May show for “mocking” and “sneering at” breastmilk art.
Fans of the popular ITV show were left shocked by a segment which focused on the topic of breastmilk jewellery.
And their growing concerns follow the show being smacked with over 100 complaints concerning “misleading” Himalayas photos.
“TV hosts can be so negative/rude if they don’t like something someone else does/has,” blasted one livid fan after watching this morning’s show.
“Lorraine has just recoiled in horror and laughed at a gift of jewellery made from a mother’s breast milk, not your body, not your jewellery, don’t be so judgemental.
“Philip & Holly are so bad!”
“Topic of breastmilk jewellery needed balance, not mocking,” stressed one frustrated Twitter fan.
They added with a web link: “Check out this amazing artist in Ireland who has helped commemorate their babies live in glass jewellery.”
“That segment had so much potential to be positive and eye opening about #breastmilk art, #breastfeeding and why it’s important,” stressed another watcher of the show.
“You can do better than sneering! How about having @HellyHancock on for a more informed and inclusive piece? I would watch and share that!”
The segment in question occurred when Lorraine was discussing popular gifts for Mother’s Day with Hollywood reporter Ross King.
“It’s just a bit of fun, we’re trying to amuse ourselves and everyone else with it,” said presenter Ross, as he introduced the segment “Celebrate Like A Hollywood Mom” followed by a Hollywood Moms gift guide strapline.
“The rich and famous out here [in Hollywood], what exactly do they get the moms out here?” asked Ross.
“Right, I’m going to go into shopping channel mode.

“A big trend at the moment, Lorraine….jewellery made out of breast milk!”
“What!?” quipped Lorraine, to which Ross joked: “Does it suck? That’s the question.”
Lorraine then starts laughing her head off at the unusual concept.
“The prices vary from £60 up to £5000,” added Ross.
“Really?” questioned Lorraine.
“Is Dolly Parton providing [the milk],” joked Ross, referring to the singer’s trademark big boobs, offering the potential to express a large quantity of milk.
