WATCH: Eamonn Holmes criticised for insensitive questioning of 12-year-old girl who lost her mum

Busking sensation Allie Sherlock appeared on This Morning earlier today.

The 12-year-old busker, from Cork, has been stunning audiences on the streets of Cork and Dublin for the past while now with her amazing vocals.

She was invited on This Morning to perform a song and speak about her recent surge in popularity after appearing on The Ellen Show.

Viewers were impressed by her vocals, but not very impressed with how Eamonn dealt with her situation. Allie has previously spoken about how her mum passed away when she was younger. Touching on this, Eamonn said to her:

"This is an amazing story, you literally found your voice when you lost your mum didn't you. How helpful has this been to articulate your feelings and your love for your mum."

Allie, who looked a bit stunned by the question, replied, "It wasn't like...I don't really know..." at which point her dad interjected and just mentioned that some of the songs she sings remind her of her mother.

People were not impressed with his question:
