Good Morning Britain viewers found themselves drawn into an interesting debate this morning.

The ITV show posed the question: 'Is Grease sexist?' on Wednesday after lead actress Olivia Newton-John brushed off claims that the film is sexist in the wake of the Me Too movement.

Film legend Didi Conn, who played Frenchie in the hit 70s movie, appeared on GMB alongside singer Susanne Shaw and journalist Olivia Petter.

Olivia argued that the film implies that Sandy 'needs to change who she is to order to be accepted.'

"The only reason why she [Sandy] does that big transformation...is to please a man," referring to the films finale in which Sandy matches Danny's no-nonsense, rock and roll style.

While Didi said Sandy's makeover was more to do with who she was becoming and 'not so much to do with getting her man.'

But this left some GMB viewers fuming.

The panel debated the issue

"I've heard it all now. @GMB actually arguing that a Grease is a sexist film. Stop the world, I want to get off," wrote one.

Another said: "I actually can't believe this Grease debate is even happening."

"Grease is sexist because Sandy has a makeover to "please a man"...when Danny Zuko has spent the WHOLE film trying to change?? I don't have enough eyes to roll #GMB," a third argued.

During the debate, Olivia said: "I do think Grease is a fabulous film, so much fun and I still watch it today. I think the important thing to address when we talk about it is that this is a woman who starts the film as a completely different person to the way that she ends it. 

"The only reason she does that big transformation to this kind of plainly dressed girly girl, so to speak, into this full of attitude, leather-wearing, laissez-faire, smoking a cigarette kind of woman, is to please a man and that’s the problem with the film is that is celebrated at the end of the film and it’s only after Sandy does that, that she becomes a socially-acceptable person for Danny to date. 

Film legend Didi Conn defended the movie

"So the implication is the woman needs to change who she is to be accepted."

While Didi argued: "She's allowing herself to come through and it’s not so much to get her man, it’s to be who she is 100% because she ran away from the dance because he was dancing with Cha Cha and she couldn't confront him because there was this part of herself that wanted to come out."
