But she had few good factors to say about her non eternal digs in Hounslow, moaning about the meals, the native views on her day by day follow breaks, and the stage of safety.

Sharing her quarantine with individuals on Twitter Michaela, 55, stated: “Day One posh jail.

“My 15 mins in the exercise yard. 8 of us watched by 8 security guards! Seriously? What do they think we’re going to do? Dig a tunnel? Have an illegal rave? The world’s gone utterly mad. Will I go mad in the process? Reckon there’s a good chance this time!”

Sharing a image from her day by day stroll, she added: “Hotel quarantine day 2. Today’s walk; car park, Radisson Hotel, Hounslow. Last week’s walk; Llandudno shipwreck, Cape Town.

“Nothing like contrast to make you appreciate the good things in life! ‘Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone’ Joni Mitchell”

By day three Michaela had “lost the will” as she expressed her dissatisfaction over the meals being served.

{{A photograph}} revealed her breakfast of two slices of toast, an apple, cereal, and yoghurt with drinks.

The TV star typed: “Day 3 hotel quarantine. I’m losing the will on day 3! £2250 and this is what you get for breakfast!I haven’t eaten rice crispies since I was 12 and who eats white bread anymore?

“And I waited an hour and a half for a guard to let me out to the car park. think I need to breathe…..”

After some backlash over her strategies, the Really Wild Show sta added: “I really actually really feel the urge to make clear. Of course there are deprived individuals who would uncover this b/quick a feast. That’s not the diploma.

“My point is about value for money. My tweet was supposed to be tongue in cheek, but I really don’t think expecting value for money makes me spoilt?”

One fuming specific individual replied to Michaela: “You didn’t just come off as spoilled, you came off judgemental with it. Cereal, toast, fruit & yoghurt pretty much are the standard breakfasts of the nation. It wasn’t that you wanted more for the money that we heard- it’s that you look down on those who consume standard staples.”

Another stated: “What planet is she on that she moans about her food when disadvantaged children get this (5-7yrs) ¼ of a Bagel plus a cereal of their choice (7-11yrs) ½ a Bagel plus a cereal of their choice (11-16yrs) 1 full bagel plus a cereal of their choice in a breakfast club”

However, others waded in to defend the presenter.

They stated: “Dear oh dear oh me !!! What is the world coming to when you can’t complain about a lousy breakfast… You work BLOODY hard and I wish people would STOP JUDGING others by just one comment. You should NOT have to aplologise.”

And one different stated: “Poverty is an issue, of course it is, but people are missing the point and can’t see the true ‘conspiracy’. How can a company charge an individual £2250 for the privilege of 10 days held in a hotel, without natural ventilation and given crappy food? Who is making the profit here?”

Michaela lives in South Africa and was unable to return to the UK to movie Springwatch this yr due to the journey chaos.

Show producers had been compelled to make remaining minute modifications due to her absence.
