Ed Balls awkwardly asks Kate Garraway about her sex life on Good Morning Britain


Ed Balls awkwardly asked Kate Garraway about her sex life during a debate on Good Morning Britain on Friday.

His comments came as the two hosts debated whether women should ban men from having sex if they eat meat in response to Peta’s call for a “sex strike” to “save the planet”.

During the debate, broadcaster Ed, 55, raised eyebrows as he asked his journalist-co-host, 55, if she would enforce a similar rule in her own life.

Kate, who married her Covid-stricken husband Derek Draper in 2005, introduced the debate by asking: “Should men have to choose between sex or sausages?”

Prompting Ed to ask awkwardly, “What’s your experience? How would you put yourself in this dilemma?

Kate looked taken aback by the question and raised her eyebrows before dismissing it and humorously joking that her partners would “rather eat the steak”.

She quipped, “I mean, when I look back on my dusty romantic history, I feel like if I had said to someone, ‘Not unless you stop eating meat,’ they would have preferred the steak.”

“I don’t think it’s going to be a big lever for the planet.”

Her colleagues were left in fits of laughter at her hilarious comments in response to Ed’s question.

The debate arose after Peta Germany’s campaign manager Daniel Cox called for women to go on a “sex strike” to save the planet.

In the petition, the animal rights group argued that men contribute significantly more to the climate crisis than women, mainly through meat consumption.

It cites research published in the journal Science PLoS One last year, which found that men emit 41 percent more greenhouse gases than the female population through their eating habits.

It suggested that women should “go on a sex strike to save the world” and even suggested that meat-eating men should be prevented from having children.

“Who doesn’t know them, the suburban dads wielding beer bottles and barbecue tongs, frying 70 cent sausages on their €700 grill,” said Daniel Cox, head of campaigns for Peta Germany.

“The courgettes provided by the visitor are viewed with suspicion and begrudgingly tolerated.

“The fact that ‘grill masters’ in Germany believe they must prove their masculinity to themselves and their peers by consuming meat is not only to the detriment of animals.

“There is now scientific evidence that toxic masculinity is also harming the climate.”

The organization cited comments by French Green Party politician Sandrine Rousseau, who sparked controversy last month by calling the outdoor grill a “symbol of masculinity.”

“If you want to solve the climate crisis, you have to reduce meat consumption, and that’s not going to happen as long as masculinity is built around meat,” said the self-proclaimed “eco-feminist.”

In addition to the ban on sex and reproduction, Cox also proposed a hefty 41 percent meat tax on men.

“After all, each unborn child saves 58.6 tonnes of CO2-equivalent per year,” he said.

“For all fathers who still grill meat and still want children with a future worth living on a livable planet, we recommend that they change their lifestyle.”
