This Morning fans dubbed the show’s Glasgow COP26 segment ‘painful’ as Phillip Schofield apologised for ‘cultural appropriation’.
The girls were on an eco trip to coincide with the road to Glasgow’s much anticipated COP26 climate change conference.
As they arrived at Glasgow Green, they were met by Highland dancers and a piper as well as Lord Provost Philip Braat.
While congratulating them on their journey, he gave them some Glasgow bobble hats and tried to present them with a ‘cup trophy’ to celebrate their achievement, but the girls ignored his gesture.
They had to be reminded by Philip Schofield to pick it up and Allison said: “Thank you for having us. We love Glasgow. This has been an absolute pleasure. I’ve learned to be less wasteful now.”
Josie added: “We have travelled four hundred miles in an electric car and want to be less wasteful.”
The duo then proceeded to try out their best Highland Fling moves alongside the Highland Dancers.
At that point Phillip Schofield told viewers: “We apologise for cultural appropriation.”
Fans were not impressed and one said: “God that Glasgow segment on This Morning was painful.”
Another added: “Asking if the people of Glasgow are excited about #COP26 the real answer is no… all the roads are shut, there will be no trains for 2 weeks and the council is going on strike #ThisMorning.”
Someone else remarked: “Imagine going on a peaceful walk in Glasgow and hearing ALRIGHT BABES HELLO #thismorning.”
And another wondered: ” #ThisMorning They started travelling north through Scotland on Monday? It’s Wednesday and they’re still only at Glasgow ? They should be in the North Sea by now.”
However one enthused: “Legit more excited to have @AlisonHammond in Glasgow than Barack. There are… no words.”
