What an idiot Gyles Brandreth is.
But viewers were not amused.
One shocked viewer wrote: “#ThisMorning astro turf reaches temperatures over 65°C when it’s 30 degs outside. Your kids and pets will get hurt walking on this!!!”
A second Tweeted: “OMG do not promote artificial grass as a sensible alternative it’s terrible for the environment, wildlife and it gets extremely hot!!!
“What an idiot Gyles Brandreth is.”
Another viewer said: “My jaw has dropped.
“Gyles Brandreth, on This Morning is celebrating his son-in-law who congratuled a neighbour for installing an ‘astro turf’ lawn to ‘save water’!”
And a fourth pointed out: “Drought is NOT a reason to replace lawns with fake grass.”
