The woman, wishing only to known as Amanda, is "incensed" by the "orange creature" currently appearing on Big Brother UK.

Speaking to Independent.ie, 'Amanda' explained that she takes issue with Marc's use of the word 'knacker' in particular.

"That is not banter!"

"Back in my day, banter was calling somebody an oul' gombeen. But if somebody called me a knacker, I'd walk a million mile (away from them)!"

"This is not entertainment... That word is offensive".

'Amanda' is angry at a number of things Marc has said on the show and thinks that Marc and Jade were bad representatives for Ireland.

"I just love my country and don't want to see it dragged through the mud by these orange creatures".

"I am trying to get as much information on Marc as I can - I read that he plans on going to America. Well, I'm going to get onto the American Embassy and get him banned".

"We're the country that produced James Joyce... where have we gone?"

"It's appalling. I'm appalled".
