FLUFF: Kochie says we need to stop talking about Mel's "new body."

Melissa Doyle appeared on Sunrise this morning to promote her new book, Alphabet Soup. The former Sunrise host took the Guest Seat on Channel Seven’s breakfast TV set to answer questions from David Koch and Natalie Barr.

She started by talking about motherhood, the time she set her alarm clock and her new job.

But six-and-a-half minutes into her interview, the inevitable happens: Somebody brings up the matter of Mel’s weight. Kochie reveals that he was interviewed for the Sunday Style profile piece on Mel Doyle, and that he was asked about Mel’s “new body”.

Hear what he has to say about why we define a woman like Mel by her looks, rather than her achievements.
