ITV This Morning viewers blast Andi Peters for 'rude' questioning of TikTok star

Andi Peters has come under fire on his first day back at the helm of This Morning. The TV star, who is often seen hosting the competition segments on Good Morning Britain and Lorraine, was co-hosting the show alongside Rochelle Humes on Monday (August 15).

The pair last hosted the show together back in September but Rochelle, 33, has been seen in recent weeks alongside Vernon Kay and Craig Doyle as the summer hosting line-up continues to change in Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield's absence.

The show got off to an energetic start with the two presenters whooping and cheering their way into a new week with the This Morning crew behind the cameras. But things got slightly more chaotic with their first guests as viewers flocked to social media to comment on the 'carnage' that unfolded.

Things did, however, settle down and Rochelle and Andi, 52, were joined on the show by 17-year-old TikTok star Kyle Thomas. The teen, from Kent, has amassed millions of online followers - 32.9 MILLION to be exact - and has gained more than 1.5 BILLION likes on the video-sharing platform.

After releasing his first graphic novel, Guardian Of The Realm, last month, Kyle appeared on the ITV daytime show to chat about his online fame and career as a young TikTok creator. But This Morning viewers were left unimpressed by the line of questioning.

During the chat Andi asked: "I need to just get a gauge, I don't want you to tell me your bank balance but could you buy a new toaster? Could you buy a new car? Could you buy a house wherever you wanted to?"

Kyle confirmed he could buy a new car or house and "live comfortably" after his TikTok earnings. But Andi then enquired about the price of the teen's jacket which lead to many viewers heading to social media to complain.

@Rosepetal98_ tweeted: "Stop asking Him how much his stuff costs it’s rude! #TikTok #ThisMorning." @Crazier fumed: "#ThisMorning Oh my christ, Andi Peters asking him how much he paid for his jacket. He’s unbearably rude." @taylorswifteew said: "Stop asking how much his clothing cost #ThisMorning."

@FlopsyPickle complained: "It’s really rude to ask him how much his clothes cost and how much he earns. Andi is rather rude a lot of the time it seems #ThisMorning."

However, others were quick to praise Andi for his role hosting This Morning. @miss_piggypoo tweeted: "Andi Peters is sooo brill. He should be #ThisMorning full time presenter." @Mark500367102 commented: "#ThisMorning good to see andi peters presenting. The man has more than earned his slot."

@debsuffolk shared: "Great to see Andi Peters has finally made it to the presenters chair #ThisMorning." @PoppysRantPage asked: "#ThisMorning can we have Andi & Rochelle more often please?" @Siobhanmc08 added: "Love love love Andi Peters presenting! Very impressed and a welcome addition. Hope he is a permanent addition #ThisMorning."
