On Wednesday's episode of The One Show, Sir Richard Branson made a guest appearance via video link.

Talking to presenters Angelica Bell and Ronan Keating, the Billionaire who is currently in Mexico discussed his upcoming trip to space which will take place on Sunday.

But although he expressed his enthusiasm and joy regarding his trip to space over the weekend, some viewers were annoyed that the BBC gave him a platform to talk about his expensive, out of this world journey .

Taking to Twitter, some viewers aired their thoughts.

One viewer said: "These ultra wealthy middle aged men spending all their hoarded loot catapulting themselves into space makes me pretty sick to be honest."

Another penned: "Oh what a shame, Richard Branson intends to come back again. I was hoping he'd naff off for good."

A third disappointed watcher chimed: "The @BBC Can f**k right off #TheOneShow giving a platform to Billionaire Richard Branson if a man can fund a Space program he should have funded employees furlough and not left it to U.K. taxpayers while he sat on his private island."
