Adil Ray called guest Bushra Shaikh "totally irresponsible" during a debate in the Good Morning Britain studio on Monday, as tensions raised.

Bushra, who appeared in the 2017 series of The Apprentice, came on the show to discuss travelling to Amber-list countries in the coming months.

The reality star claimed she wasn't going to quarantine when she returned to the UK after her holidays, going against government advice to the contrary.

An NHS palliative care doctor, Rachel Clarke, also appeared in the segment, pointed out Bushra's plan was dangerous as she could potentially spread Covid upon her return.

Adil agreed with the doctor, and turned to Bushra to say: "Your selfishness could cause people to die."

Bushra scoffed at Adil's remark, and insisted: "Oh give over, it's not selfishness."

"You're being totally irresponsible," he hit back, highlighting the death toll of the pandemic and the dangers Covid continues to pose.

"There could be nothing more irresponsible than that," he said, gesturing to Dr Clarke and adding: "She's a doctor, you're not a professional doctor and neither am I."

"Actually I think I protect lots of lives," Bushra said, trying to defend her point of view.

Meanwhile, over on Twitter, viewers weren't impressed by Bushra's comments, with many insisting it would be "selfish" to refuse to quarantine.

One fan penned: "It's not balance. I'm with the doctor, save the #NHS."

"Is @Bushra1Shaikh being serious or is she just saying this to get a rise out of people? What a dangerous individual. #GMB," added a second.

And a third weighed in: "FFS WHAT AM I HEARING??? #GMB."
