The journalist and broadcaster was reviewing the news when she told host Dermot O’Leary young people should not have the vaccine. It prompted more than 120 complaints from viewers. According to a Sunday newspaper, production staff have been ordered not to book her again. But yesterday Beverley, a mum of three and ex-wife of Olympic rower James Cracknell, tweeted: “My children and I have had all our inoculations.

“And I totally stand by my position that for healthy young people it is safer to wait for long-term data. Risk v benefit does not stack up.”

Beverley, 47, has been a regular reviewer on This Morning. Last Monday she clashed with O’Leary and fellow guest Matthew Wright over whether NHS staff should be made to have the vaccine. Beverley, 47, said: “This jab is not a ­vaccine by any traditional definition. It doesn’t stop you catching SARS Covid-2. It doesn’t stop you transmitting it.”

O’Leary replied: “It does…why are you so sceptical about the whole thing?’

She responded: “Because of the fact there’s a 99.8 percent survival rate from Covid-19. The average age of death is 82.” Matthew called her “massively irresponsible”. Beverley is said to be hopeful that she can continue as a pundit on the show.

ITV declined to comment.
