A *huge* argument has erupted on the presenter's page...
Kirstie Allsopp is best known for presenting Channel 4’s Location Location Location – but yesterday she had all eyes on her for a very different reason.
She criticised a random person’s meal on Twitter, saying: ‘Just saw a guy have a glass of coke, a cappuccino, a croissant and a ham & cheese sandwich for breakfast #OurNHSistoast #worldgonemad [sic].’

Unsurprisingly, that didn’t go down too well on social media, with many people taking offence.
In fact, the message sparked a multitude of angry responses, with people firing back at Kirstie by calling her ‘damn rude’ and ‘judgemental’, and accusing her of ‘fat-shaming’.
Some even offered logical explanations for the choice of brekkie, such as the culprit having just done a bike ride.
To this, Kirstie responded by saying: ‘Unlikely he could walk, much less cycle!’ Eek.
Some people seemed to support Kirstie’s Tweet…
While others just suggested she mind her own business.
Despite the backlash, Kirsite continued to attempt to justify her thoughts and posted a flurry of Tweets.
She wrote: ‘My point is that if we all want a functioning NHS we all need to take a pull. #ourNHS #ourlives #ourresponsibility #nomoneytree.
‘We judge that someone who doesn’t use a seatbelt is an idiot, yet decide to eat yourself to death and it’s all about not *judging* #ourNHS.
‘We can either take a pull and accept that what we eat hugely impacts our health and therefore #OurNHS or we can stick our heads in the sand.

‘How can doctors & dentists help their patients if folk go bonkers if you say coke, coffee, croissant, ham & cheese sarnie not a wise combo? [sic].’
Where do you stand in the debate? Do you think Kirstie was making a fair point? Or do you think she was out of order?
