Writing in the Guardian, the former Strictly Come Dancing and Match of the Day 2 presenter said that the reaction “baffles him”.

Adding “Many a chap has been chastised about his incompetent use of conventional toilets – poor aim, not putting the seat down, and so on.

Well, here’s the answer: a receptacle at the correct height for ease of use, which is neat, tidy, clean and flushable.”

Mr Chiles, who has two daughters, continued: “It changed my life. Gentlemen – or anyone with a penis – trust me: it is wonderful to have a toilet of one’s own.

People took to Twitter to react to the controversial opinion.

Journalist Hussein Kesvani said: “Adrian Chiles has achieved something major with this article: he’s become the first British columnist who doesn’t have an insane take about toilets.”

Matthew Sweet described the column’s banality as “truly avantgarde”.
