Louise Thompson has been slammed as ‘inappropriate and disrespectful’ for posting a Maldives holiday snap to commemorate Remembrance Day.

The former Made In Chelsea star, 30, was criticised after posting three photographs of herself on the beach accompanied by an excerpt of Laurence Binyon’s 1914 poem, For The Fallen.

The TV personality swiftly deleted the original caption, replacing it with a butterfly emoji, after fans branded the images in poor taste. 

It read: ‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

Some followers supported Louise, with one writing: ‘I think the caption and sentiment behind it is she has the freedom to travel and live the life she wants too because of the sacrifices made by the war heroes. 

‘If she wants to put a pic on of her holiday then why not? It’s remembrance Sunday, people can remember, reflect etc how ever they like or indeed choose not to! Social media comments exhaust me at times!’

Another wrote: ‘Well tbh at least Louise Thompson is posting something about remembrance and acknowledging it. There are a lot of influencers her age who are not even recognising it.’

Louise was among a host of celebrities – including David and Victoria Beckham, Tamara Ecclestone and Martine McCutcheon – to pay tribute to the war dead on Sunday.
