‘ThisMorning ouch!I do love @AlisonHammond and @radioleary but that interview with the couple from SA was cringe worthy!’, wrote one viewer.
‘This Morning this is a painful interview to watch. Like root canal painful’, said another.
A third wrote: ‘I wish these couples wouldn’t go on This Morning. The questions asked make me cringe #ThisMorning’.
‘The bedroom question was one question too far #ThisMorning’, agreed another viewer.

The couple had an instant connection when they met, with Terzel describing Wilson has a ‘gentleman with a cool demeanour’.
‘How he walked across the dancefloor and he was very confident’, she said.’He knew what he wanted and he was a gentleman as well, he didn’t try his luck with me.
Wilson went on: ‘When I saw her I was sitting alone I thought, I might as well go and ask her to keep me company. When I got there, I greeted her and asked whether I could join her and she said ‘You’re welcome to, why not?’ And that is how we started talking.
Despite their age gap, Terzel says her family never had any issues with Wilson and quickly embraced him into the family.
‘My dad was quite happy and my mum as well, she said.’Even my grandmother she says the minute she saw him, she felt he was a decent man. She didn’t have any other questions, she was quite enthralled with him and my brother was like ‘Okay this is the man in your life, cool’.
After her mother and late father gave their stamp of approval the lovebirds were married the following year in a small ceremony, with Wilson’s 57-year-old daughter, as the witness

While the couple are happier than ever, their ‘only issue’ is Wilson being unable to work Netflix, with Terzel explaining: ‘I put it on his phone and I said “This is how you do it” and I realised that he doesn’t even know the triangle means play.
The reaction to the couple when they are out in public has been less welcoming, however, with people often staring and mistaking them for father and daughter.
Wilson explained: ‘I can start with something that happened when we were together, I heard someone say “Who is that with her? Is it her father, or is it her grandfather?”

‘I heard him say that and thought to myself “This is our business and has nothing to do with you”.
Terzel says she’s never wanted children and while she has considered the face Wilson will pass away before she does, the couple try to live in the moment as much as they can.
‘When we got to together we decided we didn’t want to have kids, the family way is not our way.’
‘We have thought about [Wilson passing away] and we have spoken about it.I just love everyday just for today and try not to look too ahead in the future. That is something our relationship has given me that sense of gratitude we live in the present day.’
