Gunshot wound or poppy pattern? This Morning's Lisa Faulkner slammed over dress

First we had The Dress: was it black and blue, or white and gold? And now opinions are divided on a dress worn by Lisa Faulkner on This Morning: gruesome gunshot wound or red poppy pattern?

When the This Morning host presented an item about the terrorist shootings in Tunisia, viewers started complaining on Twitter that her dress seemed to have a ‘gunshot wound’ printed near the neck.

Co-host Ben Shephard tweeted a photo with Lisa in her dress before the programme began. The former Holby City actress was standing in for the regular hosts alongside Ben on Friday morning.

After the complaints started rolling in, a defiant Lisa pointed out that it was a dress printed with red poppies from Little Mistress, calling it a “very pretty summer dress”.

Opinions were split amongst viewers, with some criticising the host for her wardrobe choice, and others leaping to her defence.

ITV backed Lisa up on her choice of outfit, with This Morning’s Twitter account sharing a link to the style details for her “beautiful poppy dress”.

War organisation Honour Our Forces also tweeted their support for the dress.
