Phillip Schofield has revealed that Lauren Harries has been banned from This Morning after her appearance on the show earlier today."What a shame that Lauren did her cause no good at all," said Schofield. "You just never know what's next do you?"Sadly [Lauren] let herself down a bit on the show today by behaving in a most peculiar fashion. Certainly didn't advance understanding. We will regroup, recast and try again. I really want to hear more from the doctor who was on with her. He was a little bemused!"She did an 'Anne' from Little Britain! Maybe it was a dare. Spectacularly inappropriate and very silly... If I wasn't so cross at the wasted opportunity to advance public perception I think I would laugh at the utter madness of it all."Oh well, she won't be on This Morning again. I hope the doctor will come back, though... but with a more sensible spokesperson."Schofield further claimed that Harries appeared "passionate", "intelligent" and "interesting" when she was asked to appear on the show.Over the weekend 2 boys have gone back to school after the summer holidays dressed as girls .This Morning Phil and Holly are talking to Lauren Harries about what it's like to be transgender.As a child Lauren had been taken to see a doctor about her female mannerisms; while the father, Mark, was in prison Lauren decided to change his name to Lauren, transition to female, and investigate sex reassignment surgery, which was carried out in 2001.
