A musician has explained that she thinks over 40s should be banned from going to nightclubs and 'cutting shapes'.
According to Tallia Storm it's 'cringe' and 'uncomfortable' to watch older people in clubs but is 'all there for' people living their best lives.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain this morning, Tallia explained: "I'm 22 years old, I'm only just coming into my prime. I do not want to walk into the club and see my dad, see my dad's friends or even my grandad cutting some shapes.
"And I'm just not sure what we have in common. You know, do they like Tion Wayne? Do they like Central Cee? I'm not sure if they'd even be able to relate to, you know, Top Hits UK right now.
"So I think [I'm] all up for cutting some shapes but I think £5 entry fee, £2 shots, they can be left to us youngsters and you guys have many more options to head to."
Talia went on to explain that she would be open to the idea of a 'separate place' for the over-50s and 60s to 'cut some shapes' but she's just not sure that the environment is 'in sync' for both young people trying to have fun and enjoy themselves, and those in the older categories.
She added: "Speaking from my own experience, the 50 year olds and 60 year olds, they're not there to dance. From my own experience, it's kind of cringey, it's kind of creepy, they're judging, they're staring at me and I just want to have some fun."
Broadcaster Tony Blackburn hit back at the 22-year-old and said that the suggestion to ban over 40s is 'ridiculous'.
The 78-year-old said: "If you took this to extremes and banned people over the age of 40 from being in a club, how about all those people in Ibiza, all the DJs there. They're over 40, do you stop them performing? It's ridiculous."
Responding to Tallia on Twitter, one person wrote: "I'm just about to turn 40 @Tallia_Storm I will give you a run for your money on that dance floor so please stop with the age thing!"
Another added: "As if 40 is old?? It doesn't matter how old you are if you're enjoying yourself having a dance what's wrong with that? I don't care if people don't like my dancing!"
Someone else pointed out: "Over 40s made the nightclubs what they are today... and over 50s!!! Least the older generation actually dance and not just stand there posing!!!!"
