Good Morning Britain presenter Richard Madeley has been called out for an "inappropriate" comment he made toward Lioness player Alessia Russo.
The football star appeared on the show to discuss her team's historic win, but one comment made by Madeley set viewers on edge.
He greeted the Euro 2022 winner to the programme along with Kate Garraway and the two set about grilling Russo over the women's win against Germany.

Madeley said: ""How are you feeling? It's three days on now. If I was your dad and asked you that and said, 'How are you feeling love?' What would you say?"
ITV viewers were less than impressed and took to Twitter to call out Richard's condescending language.
One wrote: "Richard Madeley just said to Alessia Russo: 'How you feeling love?' Good grief! How inappropriate."
Another added: "Uh, oh, inappropriate granddad [is] interviewing one of the football team again. 'How are you feeling, love?'"
A very frustrated fan also tweeted: "Oh no! Another Lioness is going to be subjected to a Madeley interview. Time to switch over."
