OUTSPOKEN broadcaster Beverley Turner was cut off from This Morning today following a heated debate about the Covid vaccination.
Bev, 47, was on the ITV1 daytime show to discuss whether the jab should be rolled out to children as young as 12 años.
But after her temper flared, Beverley suddenly disappeared from air while rowing with NHS medic Dr Nighat Arif.
La estrella, who has controversial views on the pandemic, vanished from the screen for more than a minute and her sound was switched off so Dr Nighat could speak.
When she did return, Beverley spent a short while struggling to get heard.
The row erupted after Beverley claimed to cite various ‘testing markers’ recorded after children of 12 and over were given the Pfizer vaccine.
Dr Nighat jumped in and told Bev that her information was incorrect, as Bev shouted: “You are wrong! You are wrong! I am currently taking them to court….”
Her microphone was then turned off and she disappeared from the screen.
This is not the first time Bev has found herself embroiled in a heated debate about the Covid vaccine on live TV.
En junio, television watchdog Ofcom received 125 quejas after she shared her thoughts on the jab during an episode of The Jeremy Vine Show.
La estrella, who was formerly married to Olympic rower James Cracknell, has three children, Envejecido 10, 12, y 17.
Before her temper flared on Tuesday, she had told Dr Nighat and hosts Eamonn Holmes and Rochelle Humes: “Ante todo, I’d like to say what would be really great is if there was a doctor sat here in my position. And I can give you the names of hundreds of doctors who would like to defend this.
“People will obviously say, 'Bien, you’re just a journalist, you’re just a mum’. But I am happy to sit here and defend all those parents who, like me, see no clinical, scientific or ethical reason to give injections which are still in a clinical trial – as your doctor knows – until 2023.”
Referring to Dr Nighat, Bev went on: “She makes absolutely perfect points. We have to start from the position of is this a drug that they need? Categorically, No. Healthy children are at a zero risk of becoming seriously unwell or dying from Covid-19.
“So in the absence of there being any reason to protect them from this illness, why would we give them this drug?”
But Dr Nighat had already told viewers: “With vaccines we have three big aims; is it safe and effective for the child, is it going to be effective for other people around you and bring down the rate of infection, and is it going to be a public health measure that we need to add in.
“So when all of those three criteria are included, in the middle of a pandemic…vaccinating children makes sense.
“We know that we are going to be protecting lots of children against severe complications that we are already seeing globally but also in the UK as well.”
It is not just about protecting the child but those around them.”

The GP then told Beverley that she also has three children, including a six-year-old son who has received a liver transplant.
“Beverley, as well as a doctor, I am a mum. I’ve got three children; I’ve got a six-year-old who’s had a liver transplant and is on the immunocomprimised list. I’ve had to put him onto a ventilator three times, so having sick children is something I deal with personally and clinically as a doctor.”
She told the broadcaster: “It is not just about protecting the child but those around them.”

Dr Nighat continued to explain that the Covid-19 vaccine is “far far safer” than the virus itself.
She said that children are at a greater risk of Long Covid and other complications from coronavirus than suffering a side effect from the vaccine.
mientras tanto, Este anfitrión de la mañana Rochelle also waded into the debate and sparked a divide with her own thoughts on vaccinating children.
