The host then carried on and said that she’s had so many Hollywood actresses on the show that were too “thin”.

Viewers were not impressed with the segment and said it was “uncomfortable, “awkward” and “weird”.

After being asked whether anybody turns her down for her ‘normal’ size when working in Hollywood movies, the Bond girl actress said: “They wouldn’t do it anymore, I wouldn’t work on those movies.

“I’d run a mile, I would do it if it was necessary for a part but not just aesthetically.”

One viewer on Twitter said: “That was so weird! Gemma Arterton is tiny and #lorraine asks if she’s been told to lose weight for roles?!”

Another added: “Definitely wish I was as ‘normal’ bodied as @GammeArterton! @ITVLorraine bis disappointed in you. #lorraine #bodybeautiful”

Some people even thought she was saying that Gemma was overweight…
