British-Cameroonian Irene Major, 38, who says she has used skin-bleaching products for years, appeared on the ITV daytime show in the wake of remarks made by Beyonce’s father Mathew Knowles, who raised eyebrows when he said his superstar daughter would not be as famous if she had darker skin.

When Irene, who has appeared on the Channel 5 show Billionaire Babies, was challenged by fellow guest AJ Odudu over her reasons for wanting lighter skin, she snapped that she shouldn’t have to listen to someone with ‘fake hair’ telling her how she should look – before suddenly removing her own.
