A climate change protester who appeared naked on This Morning today to raise awareness for environmental causes left daytime viewers more than a little distracted by the sight of her “bare bum” on the famous TV couch.
Laura Amherst, an Extinction Rebellion activist who calls herself the “topless protester” and has the Twitter handle @climatet***, appeared completely naked during the interview with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby just before 11 a.m.
Keeping her modesty was a large sign that read “No more empty target,” but many of those who tuned in seemed preoccupied with the fact that Amherst had no “brain” for the look.

The presenters talked to the passionate climate activist about her unique method of raising awareness.
Amherst, a Politics student, regularly shares photos of himself on OnlyFans to raise money for Extinction Rebellion.
She told the duo, “I’m protesting topless to help save the planet,” and said she’d rather not be naked, but people don’t listen to her, so she’s chosen a bolder way to get their attention.
On Twitter, many said the tactic hadn’t worked: @NewFoundWings wrote: ‘Climate change is a big problem that needs to be addressed, and people need to make changes and wake up… but… the main problem I have now, tell me please she’s sitting on something on that couch.’
@ChantalMascoe asked ‘Is her bare bum on that couch?’
One viewer said they welcomed a discussion about climate change, but “the main problem I have right now, please tell me she’s sitting on something on that couch…”
The Politics student said she wanted to remain “neutral” when asked for her opinion on Insulate Britain, saying she was a member of Extinction Rebellion, a separate organization

@Grah841 suggested topless might not be the right description: ‘Topless? It seems she has no sting. Hopefully they have a towel on that couch.’
@sanspeurscot put it all a bit more succinctly: ‘Sweaty cheeks on the couch this morning.’
Phillip Schofield asked Amherst what she thought of Insulate Britain, which has brought the M25 to a halt several times in recent weeks during protests against climate change.
She said she wanted to remain “neutral” and emphasized her allegiance to Extinction Rebellion, a separate organization to isolate Britain, saying the latter “should be held accountable for their actions”.
This week, Edmund King, AA president, denounced the group’s actions. He told MailOnline: ‘The actions of some of these protesters storming live lanes of highway traffic are suicidal. It seems that some of these people have a death wish.
“Their actions not only endanger themselves, but also threaten to cause multiple piles and fatalities.
“We applaud the police for their swift action against these counterproductive protests that alienate the public, increase emissions and endanger lives.”
RAC road safety spokesman Simon Williams also criticized the protest as “incredibly dangerous”.
He told MailOnline: ‘As well-intentioned as the cause, blocking highways is incredibly dangerous, both for the protesters and those in their vehicles.
“Not only will this cause inconvenience to commuters on their way to work, but there could also be people who miss hospital appointments or worse, emergency services will be delayed, which could be life-threatening.”
