In an interview with The Telegraph, the TV presenter said it was important to please your husband and wear matching lingerie, “otherwise he will go somewhere else”.

Her comments caused a bit of a furore online, with readers saying her views were ‘old-fashioned’ and did a disservice to both men and women.

McCall responded to the controversy in a blog post on her website last night, and cleared up a few things:

Firstly, I do like to wear matching underwear… I don’t do it for Matthew [Robertson, her husband]… I do it for me.

“I do not submit to my husband, nor does he submit to me,” she continued.

Sometimes, especially when the kids were very young and I was super tired, this was the last thing on my mind… Has he ever coerced or pressured me? NO!!! But have I ever started feeling tired and finished feeling very happy? Yes!!

McCall has been married to Pet Rescue presenter Matthew Robertson for 15 years. The couple has three children together.
