ITV's This Morning may be daytime TV but they certainly don't shy away from items on sex.

Viewers were left aghast on Tuesday morning as a man and his wife appeared on the sofa to reveal what it's like to live with a sex robot.

Arran Lee Wright's sex robot Samantha sat between him and his wife Hannah and presenters Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield were visibly taken aback when the man revealed that they allow their children to talk to the robot.

While she is equipped with a g-spot for sex, Samantha also has a 'family mode' and Arran's three and five year old children often ask her questions.

He made the revelation after Holly asked him where he stores Samantha and Philip then asked if she sits with the family.

"My children, they say, 'Where’s Samantha?' So she can be at home and you ask her, 'Tell me something about animals' and she will."

Holly said, "At some point they’re gonna go, 'I’m old enough to realise that Samantha…Daddy has sex with Samantha, and Samantha’s not mummy'. Is that not a bit strange?’"

Arran replied that he thinks the "world is changing".  His wife Hannah also revealed that she is "not offended to have her around" or worried that the robot will replace her.

"She's just someone there like a family member," she said.

"I’m not worried because I’m not replaceable. It has enhanced our relationship. We have fun with her. I am not worried about someone else for Aaron to have an affair. It’s fun to have her around."

The conversation then turned to hygiene and Arran revealed that there are removable, washable parts.

Psychologist Emma Kenny also appeared on the show and said, "One of the things that the programme does is that she doesn’t speak for every 15 seconds because you don’t want to hear that when you’re having sex…and that just absolutely personifies what I feel is so wrong with this."

Viewers were also taken aback by the segment.
