It hasn’t been a great week for ITV show This Morning.

On Monday they failed in epic fashion to recreate a selfie where a mother was indistinguishable from her twin daughters, and now they’ve been blasted on social media for showcasing three children pole dancing.

The eldest of the three involved was 11, while the other two girls were both eight-years-old, reports the Daily Mail.


The kids are actually taking part in a gymnastic exercise known as pole fitness, but for some the link to pole dancing was just too strong.

A large number of people took to Twitter to vent their shock and weigh in on the #PoleDancingDebate.

There were those who defended the performance…

Many people argued that it was the costumes of hot pants and crop tops which could be accused of sexualising the children.

Some argued that people were fueling controversy by looking to sexualise those involved.

Rylan certainly looked as though he didn’t know what to think.

It really is up to the viewer whether they believe the performance was sexualised – but ITV can’t control who is tuning in, leaving the possibility that unsavoury characters will have watched for all the wrong reasons.
