Viewers in England watching ITV’s This Morning were shocked earlier today when they saw a couple who were guests on the show drinking their own urine.
The show hosts, Darmont O’Leary and Holly Willoughby, invited Rebecca (Bex) Long and John Dixon and watched them both enjoy a warm glass of their own wee.
They said they have been partaking in this peculiar act since their relationship began two years ago.
“It cleans you out essentially,” said John on today’s programme, who was 17 when he started drinking his pee.
“It’s made such a massive difference to my life. Just generally it helped balance my head and my emotions were a lot calmer.”
Bex added: “For the fist couple of weeks of doing it you feel extremely happy and extremely bouncy.”
The couple also explained how they used urine on cuts and burns and have found it makes their teeth whiter and eyes brighter.
Viewers who were not keen on the idea immediately took to Twitter to express their feelings:
“Daytime TV reaches a new low on #thismorning with the #WeDrinkWee topic!,” One viewer wrote.
Another added: “This is vile why would you do it? And their breath in the morning must be bad! I hope holly and dermot didn’t shake their hand #WeDrinkWee”
Luckily some viewers were able to see the funny side, joking: “I think that couple are taking the p***! #WeDrinkWee”
