Ed Balls awkwardly asked Kate Garraway about her sex life during a debate on Good Morning Britain on Friday.

His comments came as the two hosts debated whether women should ban men from sex if they eat meat in response to Peta’s call for a ‘sex strike’ to ‘save the planet’.

During the debate, broadcaster Ed, 55, raised eyebrows as he asked his journalist co-host, 55, if she would enforce such a rule in her own life.

Kate, who married her Covid-stricken husband Derek Draper in 2005, introduced the debate by asking: ‘Should men choose between sex or sausages?’

Prompting Ed to awkwardly ask: ‘What’s your experience? In that dilemma, how would you place yourself?’

Kate appeared surprise at the question and raised her eyebrows, before brushing it off and humorously joking that her partners would have ‘preferred to have the steak’.

She quipped: ‘I mean, when I look back at my dusty romantic history, I feel like if I’d said to somebody, ‘No, unless you stop eating meat’, they’d prefer to have the steak.

‘I don’t think it would be much leverage for the planet.’

Her co-stars were left in fits of giggles over her amusing comments in response to Ed’s question.

The debate arose after Peta Germany’s campaigns team leader Daniel Cox called for women to start a ‘sex strike’ to save the planet.

In the plea, the animal rights group claimed that men contribute significantly more to the climate crisis than women, primarily through their meat consumption.

It cited research published in the scientific journal PLOS One last year, which found that men emit 41 per cent more greenhouse gases than the female population with their eating habits.

It suggests that women should ‘go on sex strike to save the world’, and even proposes preventing carnivorous men from having children.

‘Who doesn’t know them, the suburban fathers handling beer bottles and barbecue tongs, who sizzle 70-cent sausages on their €700 grill,’ said Daniel Cox, campaigns team leader for Peta Germany.   

‘The zucchini provided by the visitor is viewed with suspicion and tolerated only reluctantly. 

‘The fact that Germany’s “grill masters” believe they have to prove their masculinity to themselves and their peers by consuming meat is not only to the detriment of the animals.

‘Now there’s scientific evidence that toxic masculinity also harms the climate.’

The organisation referred to comments by French Green Party politician Sandrine Rousseau, who ignited controversy last month by branding the outdoor grill a ‘symbol of masculinity’.

‘If you want to resolve the climate crisis, you have to reduce meat consumption, and that’s not going to happen so long as masculinity is constructed around meat,’ the self-declared ‘eco-feminist’ said.

As well as the ban on sex and reproduction, Cox also suggests a hefty meat tax of 41 per cent for men. 

‘After all, every child not born saves 58.6 tons of CO2-equivalent per year,’ he said. 

‘For all fathers who still grill meat and still want children with a future worth living on a livable planet, we recommend changing their lifestyle.’
