Holly Willoughby has told Matthew Wright to think about what life is like for women after he sympathised with Prince William getting scores of comments about his muscly arms.

The This Morning presenter pointed out that women face the same sexism every day in a discussion about Prince William's Covid jab not being taken as seriously as his looks in a photo he shared.

Wills had posted a photo of himself getting his vaccine and thanked the NHS for their work, but many of the comments on Instagram were from people remarking on the Duke's muscly arms and complimenting him on working out.

Thursday's This Morning guests laughed about the stir the William's arms had caused, but Matthew said: "Such a shame though, I mean there is, he’s out there really pushing this to get the message across to the younger people.

"The same younger people I’ve seen at petrol stations around the south of England, not wearing masks when being asked to. And in the end the media just says 'look at the size of his arms'."

But Holly shot back: "Welcome to life as a woman."

Matthew giggled nervously and replied: "Damn right. I must say, you have my commiserations."

Earlier in the chat, Julia Hartley-Brewer who was also part of the discussion drew shocked gasps from Holly and co-host Phillip Schofield when she suggested Prince William had lost his looks.

She said: "Look let’s be honest, I know Holly will back me up on this, he was a hottie at 18.

"But I’m glad he bagged Kate when he did because the years have not been kind to him."

As Holly and Phil were left open mouthed at her harsh comments, Julia added: "No I’m sure he’s a wonderful man, but on the hair front it’s not been kind."

Matthew made some controversial comments on the show, too, as they chatted about the trailer for the new Friends reunion.

As a clip of the original Friends cast as they look now was shown, he said: "You can see who’s been eating all the pies can’t you?"

Phil told him: "Oh you’re so mean! Stop judging people so horribly! Look at your bloody ponytail!"

Matthew continued to offend Holly and Phil as he added: "I still fancy Lisa Kudrow! Lisa is still absolutely beautiful, looks untouched by surgeon’s hands which only adds to her appeal."
