Chris, who has raised £260,000 so far, was on the show with his girlfriend, Kate Barron, whom he met while on his trek and is now expecting a baby with. 

Viewers of the show seemed to be baffled by the show's decision to blur the T-shirt and took to Twitter to share their confusion. 

One person wrote: "I'm trying to work out what the ex-paratrooper's jumper says…They've blurred it out on @Lorraine. I'm not sure why," while another added: "Why on earth have they blurred his top? Baffled! #Lorraine."

Viewers were confused when Chris' T-shirt was blurred

One person tweeted: "Lovely story on #Lorraine about the ex-paratrooper, shame his charity on his hoodie had to be blurred out," while another added: "Why are they blurring his T-shirt if it’s advertising the charity he’s walking for?"

ITV has explained their decision to blur the T-shirt. They said in a statement: "In line with Ofcom rules on undue prominence, we are unable to feature specific logos for the duration of interviews. Unfortunately, these guidelines also apply to charities. However, Lorraine and Chris both referenced the charity on air during the interview."
