Marsh has since called Thomson "unprofessional" for his remarks
, saying that his accusations are also "untrue."
Responding to tweets about her comments, she posted
: "Love being told I have no right to defend my friend and how it's nowt to do with me.. Erm so what's it to do with u then? (sic)"
A Twitter user replied: "But surely you can understand that alot of people found Anthony Cotton very bitchy on IAC and therefore don't think he is nice guy."
: "yes but it's an EDITED tv show made for shock and entertainment purposes and I KNOW the real Antony so am able to comment."
She later ended the discussion by saying
: "Yes Thompson IS entitled to an opinion as am I! And as Antony is my friend I am also entitled to defend him. Don't u defend your mates?"
