Janet Street-Porter was a hit with viewers on Friday's This Morning, as she brought a healthy dose of debate to the show with her views on the new countryside code.

While Janet, 74, discussed with Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary the benefits of the new code of etiquette, viewers were distracted by her backdrop.

Certain fans of the show were convinced Janet had tuned into the show from her cellar, as they picked up on the sophisticated exposed brickwork.

Video calling from her home in Norfolk, wooden beams were visible over the ceiling, and a concrete fireplace was on display over her shoulder.

White ceiling lamps hung between the beams, and there appeared to be a bed in the background, dressed in deep red sheets.

As Loose Women star Janet voiced her opinions, viewers took to Twitter to discuss the backdrop, with many confused by which room of the house she occupied.

One wrote: "Janet's Wifi signal top notch…In her cellar."

"Janet's bedroom is in the cellar?" wondered a second.

And a third weighed in: "Janet Street-Porter: Live from the Dragons Den."

Janet spoke out against the government's decision to revamp the "countryside code" with a pamphlet, instead suggesting they ought to bring in fines.

The new code was launched on April 1, instructing visitors to the countryside to be friendly towards those they meet and to avoid littering.

Janet found a flaw in the new code, explaining: "Publishing a pamphlet won't make any difference because wild camping has been encouraged by the media and it's been going on for ages.

"I don't think the answer is producing a pamphlet is the answer."

Janet ured the government to hire wardens in the rural areas, saying: "We need wardens in national parks and beauty spots issuing on the spot fines as people return to their cars.

"The government needs to invest money in protecting our greatest national asset which is the countryside and not spending £50,000 promoting a pamphlet.

"They should put real money into protecting our countryside in the form of wardens. Not just doing fancy signs, not just telling us to stay safe, not just telling us to smile when someone comes in the opposite direction. "

This Morning airs on weekdays at 10am on ITV.
