Kent model Kelly Brook has been heavily criticised by TV viewers after laughing about punching two ex-boyfriends.
The Rochester-born beauty appeared on This Morning on ITV yesterday to talk about her new autobiography, Close Up.
But she provoked outrage - and was labelled "despicable" and "disgusting" - when she began giggling at having hit former lovers Jason Statham and Danny Cipriani.
The 34-year-old's reaction sparked a furious response on Twitter, with one viewer writing: "Disappointed with @itvthismorning for laughing along with Kelly Brook RE her hitting boyfriends in the face! Domestic violence isn't funny!"
Another said: "So Kelly Brook laughs & admits to punching ex bf's in the face. If a guy had admitted doing that to a women they’d be uproar!"
And fellow social media users said: "Glad she finds domestic abuse so funny! A punch is abuse no matter what gender's doing it" and: "Would you all be laughing your heads off if it was man giggling about how he punches his partners? Disgrace."
Kelly, who attended Thomas Aveling School in Rochester, admits hitting her ex-boyfriends in her new book.
The ex-Celebrity Juice star tells how Jason was "met with my fist in his face" when he taunted her about another woman.
And she had to be restrained by bouncers at a club when she punched Danny in the face after discovering he had given his number to a stripper.
Kelly told This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: "I'm not saying I'm an angel. I guess I get some of that fiery passion from my parents."
