There was widespread criticism on social media recently as a number of viewers of Channel 4’s latest documentary series ‘Quadruplets and Homeless’ voiced their anger at how the couple highlighted in the programme were able to afford IVF treatment.
The programme which focused on the lives of the couple named Tony and Anyur has received a backlash of criticism after it was revealed that the pair managed to avail of the costly treatment on the NHS.
Viewers who flocked to social media during its airing were also disgusted at the fact that the quadruplets father who is Irish had ‘alcohol problems’
During the hour long programme the pair discussed the struggles of trying to raise the newborns whilst they were living with Anyur’s parents.
The couple who live on benefits due to Tony’s ongoing medical conditions also revealed that they had been trying to conceive for 10 years but we’re unsuccessful.
Although the programme did receive some positive response from the public, many felt that the programme was disgraceful and irresponsible with many finding it appalling that the pair were allowed to receive IVF treatment given that they were homeless and that Tony had a serious issue with alcohol.
During the programme’s airing a number of viewers took to Twitter to express their disgust with one user writing: ‘How did they have money for 2 rounds of IVF… but not a roof over their heads.’
Another person wrote: ‘Great… argumentative, homeless couple, that’s never lived together give birth to quadruplets.’
Whilst another said: ‘Quadruplets and Homeless..that’s all you need isn’t it the father going back on drink.’
Did you watch last night’s programme and do you think Tony and Anyur were judged unfairly?
