Jeremy Vine's Channel 5 show has been bombarded with Ofcom complaints after airing a row about mandatory vaccines.

65 complaints were received in relation to the segment, which aired on November 24.

It came as a phone-in took place on the channel, with the caller wondering if making the vaccine mandatory was "against human rights".

The caller said: "It takes a minimum of five years to release a vaccine and another 36 months – three years – to deem if this vaccine is safe for the human body.

"So in those three years when people are going through the trials of the vaccine, any vaccine, it's three years to correct what our human bodies are reacting to. Making this vaccine mandatory – isn't that against our human rights?"

Daily Express columnist Carol Malone then responded: "You're completely right when you say it normally takes a lot of years, but in normal circumstances you don't have every scientist on the planet working for a vaccine for one thing – in this case we did."

She added: "Millions of man hours went into this, the same amount of man hours that would go into any other vaccine – it was just done over a compressed amount of time."

The scene soon descended into an argument, however, as Carol rowed furiously with panelist Matt.

He argued: "This is a clash of rights. [Workers] have the right, reasonably, to be protected, but people also have the right, I think, to decide what goes into their own body."

Carol fumed: "No they don't!"

"We don't want to move to a world where people are banned from eating food if they're obese, because if you're obese or you're an alcoholic then you are endangering lives," Matt insisted.

Carol fired back: "You keep on saying the same thing!"

"Because you keep on attacking me!" he argued.
