Richard Madeley clashed with Dr. Hilary Jones on Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain, when he argued against a delay to the easing of the lockdown on June 21.

The show’s 65-year-old guest host became visibly angry as he discussed recent reports that the final phase of the easing could be delayed by two weeks.

About the possible delay being enforced, Richard asked Dr. Hilary, 67: ‘You’re going to agree, aren’t you?’ to which he replied, ‘I am.’

He continued: ‘I mean, we’re looking at increasing cases, we’re looking at a population where — still — only 75 percent have had the first shot and just over half the second shot.

‘So a lot of people go unprotected with a variant that’s pretty nasty.

“So the idea of ​​mass gatherings, the idea of ​​people leaving masks, sanitizing hands and social distancing is insane at a time when things are getting worse.”

In response, however, Richard insisted that, due to the successful rollout of the vaccine in the UK, the government should lift the lockdown restrictions.

He argued: ‘But we have ministers who have said – repeatedly now two weeks ago – that the vaccines have broken the link between Covid and hospitalizations and deaths. They’ve broken the link.’

dr. Hilary refused to back down, saying: ‘And so we need to be a little more patient, get everyone vaccinated and then we can start thinking about lifting the restrictions.

“If we do it too early, there’s a risk that we’ll go where we were before.”

Richard hit back and said, “What you and the people in your camp are saying, Hilary, is that delay doesn’t necessarily have to be a few weeks or even a few months, it could go up to Christmas.

“And I don’t think the public is going to wear that.”

Susanna Reid, 50, then pointed out that the vaccination protects well against the Indian variant.

It comes after Good Morning Britain viewers cringed on Monday over Richard and Susanna’s ‘excruciating’ interview with a family of nudists.

With nudism on the rise, the co-hosts were tasked with figuring out why uncovering everything is so appealing, but the 11-minute segment didn’t appeal to viewers.

Speaking from a field in Doncaster, Carol and Colin Wood, along with their daughter Angie, explained why they preferred to live unclothed.

Covering their naked bodies by kneeling behind straw bales, Colin explained, “It’s fun, it’s convenient, you have no trouble changing in a small tent, and people trust each other.

“I’ve had a lot of ladies go with me in a Land Rover across the field and there’s a confidence that there isn’t in other societies.”

When asked by Richard if they ever feel judged, Colin insisted, “No, not at all. By the time you have gone to naturism, you will be satisfied with your body.

“The young people are scared and they stay covered, and you get older and your body gets out of shape, it doesn’t bother you anymore.”

Viewers took to Twitter to express their views on the 11-minute segment, with many labeling it “cringe” and “awkward.”

One person wrote: ‘The nudists on #goodmorningbritain were too funny. They couldn’t keep their faces straight.’

‘Omg it was so funny and creepy to see these nudists on TV so early’ another tweeted, while another insisted: ‘Seeing you interview those 3 nudists is INCREDIBLE!’
