Good Morning Britain was hit with over 1,400 Ofcom complaints after Dr Hilary Jones made a comment about bogus coronavirus leaflets.

On November 1, the TV doctor was discussing the coronavirus yellow card reporting system which makes allegations about the risks of vaccination claiming to be from the Government.

The 68-year-old has said the leaflets were ‘complete misinformation’, resulting in 1,428 complaints.

Dr Hilary explained to co-hosts Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid: “Beware of bogus letter drops, which are complete nonsense. This is complete misinformation.

“It looks like a Government UK yellow card reporting scheme for adverse reactions to any kind of medicines or vaccines.

“But this purports to talk about all sorts of adverse reactions to vaccines, which are completely bogus and hoax.”

Presenter Richard question whether it was ‘anti-vaccine’.

Dr Hilary said: “Oh absolutely – and this would put a lot of people off the vaccine, dangerously, because it is complete misinformation.”

Although it is not known whether an investigation was launched, Ofcom said complaints between November 2 and 8 were relating to a chat about the coronavirus yellow card reporting system.

Viewers were annoyed with the segment, with some taking to social media to complain about it.

One viewer took to Twitter to say: “After Richard and Dr Hillary ripped up the yellow card on air then made jokes about a pen that dispensed sanitizer. Im Done.

“To deny, disregard and disrespect victims of vaccine injury is pure evil.

“No humanity, compassion or empathy. Just pure contempt. Complain to ofcom”.

It was recently reported that Dr Hilary’s home had been targeted by a group of anti-vaccination protestors after his public advocation of the Covid vaccination rollout.

The protestors formed outside the star’s Kent residence last month, bearing placards that demanded ‘the truth’.

According to MailOnline, some had megaphones and would yell that he was “a criminal” and demanded “justice”.

Medical expert Dr Hilary has been appearing on Good Morning Britain daily throughout the pandemic, providing an update on the spread and what we can do to tackle it.

He has also strongly spoken out against those who refuse to take it, including the reported three Strictly Come Dancing pros who are allegedly unvaccinated while continuing to participate in the show.

He has also been a strong advocate for the coronavirus vaccine, encouraging viewers to take it when offered.
