This Morning presenters warned ‘think before you speak’ after Lucy Letby segment

This Morning star Rochelle Humes has been faced with backlash as she discussed serial killer nurse Lucy Letby on the ITV daytime show.

The presenter was back on the famous blue sofa on Monday (August 21) with co-host Andi Peters to discuss the latest news headlines.

Conversation turned to Letby, who has been convicted of murdering seven babies and trying to kill six more when she was working on the neonatal unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital between June 2015 and June 2016.

She deliberately injected newborns with air, force-fed others milk, or poisoned them with insulin.

The baby murderer is being sentenced on Monday at Manchester Crown Court and Rochelle and Andi discussed the case live on air.

However, fans watching at home were left unimpressed after Rochelle noted the fact that the prolific child serial killer in modern British history didn't "seem like a typical murderer".

Viewers rushed to X, formerly known as Twitter, to discuss the segment.

One fan penned: "Stupid thing to say. She doesn't look like a murderer. Ffs, seriously think before you speak!!!#thismorning."

Another added: "Doesn’t look like your normal murderer, wtf does that even mean. Good job we know what normal murderers look like so we can give them a wide berth."

A third person posted: "These two are confused because they think Lucy Letby doesn’t look like a murderer… #ThisMorning."

While a fourth social media user said: "What is a murderer supposed to look like ? I mean they can look as normal as you or I #ThisMorning."

An independent inquiry has been set up to understand how Letby was able to carry out the killings and attempt on others before being reported to the police.

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV1 and ITVX at 10am
