The controversial ‘off-grid parents’ who caused carnage on This Morning returned to the show today.
Unconventional parents Adele and Matt Allen got a furious backlash after their daughter urinated during their eventful appearance in July 2016.
They were slammed for letting their ‘feral’ kids , who decide when they go to bed and what they study when home-schooled, run riot in the studio last time out.
This time the parents returned with Ulysses, Ostara and brought a new addition to the family, two-month-old daughter Kai.
Presenter Phillip Schofield commented on how "terribly well-behaved" the children were, but This Morning viewers spotted one of them doing something else disgusting.

Phil and Rochelle were a bit confused by some of their beliefs
Rochelle Humes kicked the interview off by referencing the "little accident" during their last appearance.
On whether she was shocked by the reaction, mum Adele said: "I was. It was funny. I can see how it was funny. I didn’t understand the anger. It bewildered me a bit.
"It’s gone so far from the other polarity which is the normal so it looks extreme. To people doing a few of the things we’re doing it wouldn’t look extreme."
The children have no routine, vaccinations, doctors, dentists, medicine formal schooling, financial security, car, naughty step, TV, toys or suncream.
They had a new addition to the family
They encourage the kids to "listen to their bodies" and their son does not go to bed until 9 or 10pm.
When asked about letting their son decide what he learns, she said: "We encourage new skills but ultimately if he’s not interested in learning it he’s not going to pick it up."
Matt explained that he adapted their lifestyle after taking a food supplement that changed his body, energy and health.
He said: "it’s not about grasping hold of happiness. It’s exposing yourself to a whole plethora of emotions."

They don’t "shun" technology son is allowed an iPad which gives him access to communicate with the outside world.
The parents also didn’t allow scans or any other medical intervention when their daughter was born.
When asked about the risks, Adele said: "We had numbers for midwives and called them on the same day she was born.
"We’re not stupid, we know when to call on people when we need them. I don’t have a strict dogma. I don’t say never ever medicine, it’s just a last resort."
