A Twitter user wrote to Kirstie to criticise the Location show, which she co-presents with Phil Spencer, stating: "Do you ever help working class people search for a house or flat on that TV programme?" to which the 48-year-old responded sarcastically: "No, there's a ban on working class house hunters. I come out in a rash if exposed to them."
