'Myleene Klass: Single Mums on Benefits' was ridiculed by many on social media, with many claiming her wealth made her an inappropriate presenter.
Myleene Klass’s documentary about single motherhood drew a barrage of criticism from viewers, saying that the former pop star’s wealth made her appear “patronising” in last night’s programme.
The 38 year old presented ITV’s ‘Single Mums on Benefits’, which was broadcast on Tuesday night (May 31st) and which saw her attempt to dispel the myth that single mothers are almost always young and reliant solely on state handouts – revealing that the average age of a single mum in Britain is 37.

Her new documentary, 'Myleene Klass: Single Mums on Benefits', airs on ITV on Tuesday evening (May 31), and she appeared on 'Lorraine' to speak about what she learned while filming it.
Ahead of her new documentary she’s presenting, taking a look at the lives and struggles of single parents, Myleene Klass has said that she wants to change people’s negative perception of the phrase “single mum”.
Klass, 38, who has been battling on as a single parent to her two daughters – Ava, 8, and Hero, 5 - since her ex-husband Graham Quinn walked out of the marital home four years ago, appeared on ‘Lorraine’ on Tuesday morning (May 31st) to talk about her new programme, which airs the same evening on ITV.
She said that filming the project and speaking to single parents from all walks of life had opened her eyes to the scale of the achievement it takes to actually raise children alone. “(Mum) is the most powerful word in the world and we still don't use it in the way it deserves to be… we always say ‘Do I look a bit Mum?’”

The presenter had claimed she released the rat-eating crab in Hampstead Heath.
Myleene Klass has come under fire from wildlife experts after she claimed to have released a giant rat-eating crab (believed to be a coconut crab) in Hampstead Heath, London. The presenter found the crab in her suitcase after returning from a trip on the Pacific island of Mogmog, where she had been teaching natives piano for her new TV series.
Myleene Klass joked about releasing a giant crab in London.
"I don’t know if somebody packed this or what, but in my bag when I got home was a giant crab. They must be hardy these crabs, it made it all the way back,” Klass said. "I kept thinking, ‘I’ve got to let this crab go free because it is not very happy here in Highgate.”
The mild-mannered star spelled a rude - but rather impressive - word on the popular daytime word show.
Middle class icon Myleene Klass turned the air blue in an episode of ‘Countdown’ when she spelled a rude word. The 37 year old former ‘One Show’ presenter is a guest this week on the show’s ‘Dictionary Corner’, and managed to form a crude – but rather impressive – word.
She told presenter Nick Hewer: “I’ve got a rude one”, before spelling out the eight letter word ‘gobs***e’ on Tuesday afternoon’s show, after the two contestants had only made the same seven letter word ‘ghosted’.

Myleene Klass' marriage could be over by the end of the day after the TV presenter filed for a 'quick divorce' at a London court today.
A year ago Myleene Klass' world took an unexpected turn for the worse when her husband Graham Quinn walked out on her and their two children, Ava, 5, and Hero, 2, without warning. Now, according to the Sun, Myleene is ready to call it quits with Graham for good and is finally filing the papers for divorce with the hopes that it can be done as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Myleene Klass wants her marriage over as soon as possible.
Myleene is believed to be seeking a decree nisi from the court, stating that her marriage has irretrievably broken down. The case will be dealt with by Deputy District Judge Crowther at the High Court in London, with the proceedings ending before the day is over should Myleene's petition be considered by the Deputy District Judge. The former Hear’Say singer, 35, split from her former security guard Graham, 39, last April after only six months of marriage, however previous attempts to get wed had been put on hiatus due to work commitments and the birth of their second child. The two had previously dated for almost a decade before tying the knot, although things soon soured, however neither Myleene nor Graham have spoken publicly about why this was.

Somehow, Myleene Klass' career is still alive, sort of. Believe it or not, Heart have handed her a special Christmas show, in which she can have special guests come in for a Christmassy chat and some mince pies, The Mirror reports.
"I'm so excited to be joining the Heart presenter line up," Klass explained of her new show, Myleene's Klass Christmas (wow). "To be given my own show, a piano and the chance to work with some incredible people (as well as the seemingly constant supply of mince pies), is a lovely way to get in the Christmas spirit," she continued. Clearly a fan of The X-Factor, Klass has elected the prematurely ejected Ella Henderson as the first guest on her brand new project. Deemed an 'incredible' person by someone who is yet to prove that of herself, Henderson was considered to be an X-factor favourite before her shock eviction from the show.
James Arthur - the eventual winner of The X Factor - has been hitting the headlines for a very different reason. He's been mixing it up with ex-winner Matt Cardle, saying, "the blokes that have won before have had a niche, they haven't sold records because they haven't made great albums. That's the bottom line." To which Cardle hit back, saying, "I said, 'Look, James, you're very talented but you haven't sold two million records yet, which I have,'" Matt said, humbly taking his Mother Theresa costume out of the wardrobe and pulling it on while recounting a conversation which may or may not have taken place in his head. "You haven't had two top ten albums yet, which I've had. Don't start mouthing off before you've even really left the show."
