Kirstie Allsopp has sparked a national row after saying it is “disgusting” to keep a washing machine in the kitchen.

The Twitter storm struck on Tuesday as Ms Allsopp said much of her “life’s work” had been to help stamp out the practise, and then branded her detractors “f***wits”.

The debate began when the Location, Location, Location host responded to a tweet by Jim Waterson in which he wrote: “Americans in our office are always confused by the British habit of putting washing machines in kitchens and view this as disgusting.”

Ms Allsopp chimed in: “It is disgusting, my life’s work is in part dedicated to getting washing machines out of the kitchen.”

She said the appliance could be put in a bathroom, hall cupboard, or airing cupboard instead.

Some social media users responded with outcry, calling Ms Allsopp a “snob”.

“Some people really do not have any choice but to have it in the kitchen,” wrote one Twitter user.

“Not everyone is as privileged as you, Kirstie. Do you seriously think everyone has room to put a washer elsewhere?” asked another.

Ms Allsopp responded: “Look you bunch of total f*** wits, IF POSSIBLE have a washing machine out of the kitchen frees up space, if not possible no big deal.”

She went on: “Please note there is a degree of humour in this debate, no need to take it quite so seriously.”
