GMB Viewers Baffled At Guest's Choice Of Background In Front Of Entire Nation

GMB Viewers Baffled At Guest's Choice Of Background In Front Of Entire Nation

People have flooded to social media in despair over the background behind one of the interviewees on Good Morning Britain.

Amy Nickell was invited onto the show to talk about the monarchy, but viewers were left distracted by what they could see on the screen behind her.

Twitter users have since flocked to the platform in outrage after the author and broadcaster appeared on the talk show this morning, 13 June.

The issue people have found with her background is possibly the most British thing ever - bar the backlash people face for making a weak cup of tea.


Channelling the ferocity of the two neighbours in Gnomeo and Juliet who battle hard against one another to ensure their garden reigns superior, many Brits flocked to Twitter to condemn Nickell's lack of green fingers.

Instead of focusing on her political insight, tweets instead focused on the importance of the author sorting out her grass length.

Despite living in the sunny and quaint area of north-west London known as Hemel Hempstead, her garden wasn't quite up to scratch with viewers' expectations.


One user said: "Think @AmyNicks_needs to look out the back and realise her grass needs cutting #GMB."

However, another responded by reminding the other that perhaps the length of Nickell's grass shouldn't be the main takeaway from the interview. They said: "I was thinking the same thing but total agree with what she’s saying."

A third user noted that despite Nickell's looking 'lovely' herself, she should have really sorted out her grass before 'appearing live in front of the nation'.


"This lady on @GMB really needs to mow her grass," another wrote.

A final said: "Could have at least cut the grass ffs."

Nickell has since responded to the backlash by joking: "Does anyone have a strimmer I can borrow?"


She later retweeted another user's reply to a tweet which read: "Embarrassing that @AmyNicks_goes on Live TV with a garden that hasn’t been mowed since last year… lazy f**ker."

The user defended Nickell: "My grass is the same. I'm growing mine. I have sown it with wild flower seeds to attract bees and butterflies. Maybe she has the same idea."

To which Nickell added: "Thank you Marisa, for my official statement on the issue."


Despite many users' fierce opinions online that Nickell really should have trimmed her lawn before appearing on Good Morning Britain, Nickell's lack of grass cutting actually falls in line with advice given to homeowners ahead of the month of May.

Charity No Mow May has encouraged those of us with gardens to lock away our mowers and leave grass free-flowing in order to encourage wild flower growth and bugs, beetles and bees to thrive.
