Loose Women's Kelly Brook has drawn criticism after her comments regarding working mothers didn't exactly go down well with some viewers of the ITV show.

The panel was discussing controversial comments made by a mother who said that 'parents of young children are not reliable employees'.

'Are people unreliable employees once they become parents?' Ruth Langsford asked, to which Kelly answered first.

'I do have a pet hate, and I don't have children so I don't always understand what it's like to have children and to juggle career and kids and everything else that us as women have to do,' she prefaced.

'With some women, if they can't make an appointment or can't do something, and there is a deadline, some people I work with will always say, "Oh, it's because I have to bath the baby",or "[I have to] feed the kids", or "[I have] got to do the school run".

'And others have kids and you never even hear about the kids. They're very professional and I love that,' Kelly continued.

'I just don't think people should use kids as an excuse not to do their job properly. I just think it's nobody's business. It's your private life, and If you can't meet the demands of your job, don't blame your kids.'

A number of social media users questioned if Kelly was even qualified to give her opinion considering she's not actually a parent herself.

'I 100% guarantee that if Kelly had kids she would have a totally different stance,' said one viewer at home.

Another said: 'Kelly Brook has absolutely no idea. How can she even comment without having kids. Just wait you til you do, Kelly. THEN you will realise how hard it is.'
