BBC Breakfast's Nina Warhurst hits back after 'jealous' woman criticises her hair

BBC Breakfast presenter Nina Warhurst has hit back in style - after a woman criticised her hair. On Twitter, the pregnant 42-year-old broadcaster shared a cruel email she received from a female viewer after Wednesday's (April 5) show.

The viewer told Nina, who is expecting her third child, she "looked 'a mess" and that they were "repulsed by her hair". They even implied Nina's hair put them off their breakfast.

Nina didn't take the criticism to heart, though, and instead shared a glorious response via her Twitter account, reports the Daily Mirror. Sharing a screenshot of the offending email alongside a selfie of herself on the BBC Breakfast set, Nina wrote: "Women who do this to women [sad face emoji].

Should the TV licence be scrapped? Have your say here

"Too repulsed by my hair to eat her breakfast, but managing to bang out this vitriol. Apart from anything else I can't bear inaccuracies - I think we can all agree my hair looked [love heart emoji]."

The email to Nina read: "Please do something with your hair. You look a mess!

"We have to look at you while we are eating out breakfasts, for heavens sake! (sic)." Nina's fans and famous friends were quick to reply to the broadcaster's epic response to the angry viewer.

"F*** THEM . U look lovely x," presenter Rylan told the presenter. Sky News star Leah Boleto added: "Mate you look beautiful.

"You're glowing. Don't give these people the time of day."

Sports broadcaster Hayley McQueen told Nina: "Wow, if that's a bad hair day you should see mine sometimes. Some people are so strange!"

ITV News presenter Jess Dunsdon added: "Jealousy. Pure and simple.

"And it's jealousy which will ensure this embittered wench wallows in the cave where she belongs, while talent and hard work has elevated you to the heady heights of breakfast tele. Keep shining QUEEN."
