This Morning viewers were furious earlier today when a single mum-of-eight claimed life is better on benefits and she’d rather spend her wages on a boob job. Marie Buchan, from Shenley Fields, Birmingham, had been given part-time work as a carer but as a result her benefits were cut.
Speaking to This Morning’s Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, the controversial guest raised a very strong reaction from viewers – and not for the first time – with many claiming she was “ruining the system”.
During the segment titled “Why should I work when life is easier on benefits?”, Marie revealed she was thinking of quitting her job and said: “It’s mentally draining for myself, it’s hard enough having eight children to myself.”
It was then revealed that Marie wants a boob job – which is set to cost £4,500 – and admitted that she intends to spend her work wages on the surgery. Viewers couldn’t believe it, with one saying: “Boob job as well, f*** off, pay for your kids!.”
