This Morning viewers were shocked to watch a baby’s headband slip round its neck while her mum chatted to the hosts.

Tracey Britten, a 51-year-old mother of quadruplets, used her inheritance to go through IVF, which resulted in the birth of her four babies just three months ago.

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield held a baby each, while Tracey held a boy and girl in her two arms.

The baby girl’s headband slipped over her eyes, but as the interview continued, the headband continued to slip around the baby’s neck, which shocked fans as they watched, shares The Mirror.

The headband remained there as the interview continued, during which Phil joked that his little one, also a girl, had filled her nappy.

But while Phil was joking with his girl, fans were utterly shocked, taking to social media to share their concern.

One said: “#ThisMorning how many people are in that studio, and no one has informed that mother that one of those babies has its head band over its eyes and mouth??? Ridiculous”

Another said: “Errr may wanna check your baby love the bands slipped down to its neck. #ThisMorning”

A third continued: “Why has no-one removed that headband from around that babies neck?!!!!!”

And another asked: “How have they not noticed the baby’s head band?! Poor kid”

  • No danger to the baby with so many people looking on.


  • I hate head bands on babies, they look like giant Easter eggs! I am sure that there was no danger to the baby here there would have been plenty of people there to assist if needed


  • There has been quite a lot of warnings about baby’s headbands.
    People have now witnessed the danger on live TV. I hope it raises public awareness about how dangerous they are and people stop putting them on their babies


  • Was it actually life threatening to the child? Im sure she wouldnt be strangled be her headband.


  • I assume people in the studio were watching, ready to say something if it looked like there was any risk.


  • It didn’t look dangerous but with 4 babies the Mum is probably in survival mode so a loose head band probably gets let go more than some with one baby would.


  • Omg give them a break. Sure, it’s a concern that no one said anything, but it wasn’t tight and wasn’t interrupting her breathing. I don’t use headbands because they constantly seem to need adjusting and I have enough to worry about.


  • Think the commentors over reacted just a tad, the headband doesn’t look right. Yes the mother shouldve been more observant though.


  • I don’t understand why no one said anything??


  • I don’t like those headbands at all, but i’m not sure why the outroar as it wan’t tight at all


  • I dont like headbands on babies, but for those who do like them, this is a good reminder to always keep an eye on your baby and not let them wear them if they are not with you. I highly doubt something would have happened in this particular situation as there is alot of people around and the mum is right there, but a good reminder none the less .


  • Didn’t seem to be tight or a real danger.


  • I don’t think the baby was going to die on national tv with so many crew around. Probably an overreaction but a good reminder about headbands!
