Kerri-Anne Kennerley has shocked Studio Ten audiences and panel members – and potentially risked her job – after absolutely slamming Bachelor in Paradise.

Kerri-Anne slams THAT Bachelor in Paradise lesbian kiss:

During a live discussion on Thursday’s show, the 65-year-old said that BiP producers had included a steamy lesbian kiss between Alex Nation and Brooke Blurton ‘just for ratings’.

When host Sarah Harris asked Kerri-Anne for her thoughts on Bachelor in Paradise, she replied: ‘Seriously? They put that stuff on because it’s titillating, and it’ll rate!’ 

Kerri-Anne also elicited shock when she defended unpopular cast member Paddy Collier, Who was criticised on social media for his opinions on the kiss.

The TV Star was keen to stress that her opinions don’t reflect her views on the LBGTQ community, but she was more than likely going to get a ‘talking to’ from network bosses after her on-air outburst.

‘I just think titillating television is moronic. But so is Bachelor in Paradise. But that’s just me. I know it’s the network, sorry!’ she added.

‘People with half a brain like Paddy will make those remarks and, yes, he is reflecting what a whole bunch of blokes do,’ she said.

‘But [the lesbian kiss scene] is only there because people are going to go, “Oooh, ahh!” It’s moronic!’
