‘Never seen him so mad!’ – Viewers praise Eamonn Holmes’ explosive interview

This Morning viewers praise Eamonn Holmes for "not pussyfooting around" Oxfam’s sex abuse scandal.

The host was faced with the disgraced charity’s Fundraising Director Tim Hunter on this morning’s show.

"You have messed it up, you have," he fumed.

"These ‘heroes’ were exchanging aid for sexual favours. That is worse than what’s going on in Hollywood."

"We are ashamed of what happened, we have apologised for what happened," Hunter answered, looking sheepish.

And viewers rushed to Twitter to praise Eamonn for his tough stance on the scandal.

"@EamonnHolmes has had enough," one viewer tweeted.

"Yassss give him s**t Eamonn!" another added

"Well said @EamonnHolmes. No pussyfooting around, addressing the issue. @oxfam Your fundraising rep is well out of his depth," another wrote.

"I’ve never seen Eamonn so mad #ThisMorning," another viewer tweeted.

Yesterday, Minnie Driver has cut all ties with charity Oxfam, stepping down as its global ambassador.

Minnie, 48, worked with the charity for 20 years, even donating a £72,000 lunch date to its Ebay auction back in 2008.

"I am nothing short of horrified by the allegations against Oxfam International," she said.

In a statement, Oxfam chiefs said they were saddened by Minnie’s decision.

Oxfam faces having tens of millions of pounds worth of taxpayers’ cash withdrawn amid growing anger at sexual misconduct claims against its staff.

International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt told BBC1 ’s The Andrew Marr Show the alleged cover up of aid workers’ use of prostitutes in Haiti was "shocking".

She will meet the charity’s bosses to demand answers over the 2011 incidents.

She said Oxfam had failed in its "moral leadership" over the "scandal".

And she warned: "If they don’t hand over all the information they have, then I can’t work with them any more."

Oxfam got £32million from her department last year.

The Charity Commission said Oxfam told of a misconduct probe on inappropriate sexual behaviour – but not potential sex crimes involving minors.

Oxfam said such claims are unproven. It announced new measures for the prevention and handling of sexual abuse cases.
