Pimblett started strong by declaring: "Well, I don’t like any of the Royal Family."

He continued: "The Royal Family is mad, lad. It’s proper mad. Because they get paid for who they are. To just exist.

"We pay loads of taxes and it's like yeah, let's get her house fixed up."

The host then called it a 'built-in reality show,' which Paddy agreed with.

It's an opinion which has split fans on social media and they've had their say.

One commented: "Wrong. The royals actually make more money than they get in allowance [sic]."

A second agreed, adding: "The royal family generate £22 billion a year towards tourism…… well leave that there [sic]."

Someone put: "Not sure if getting a ufc fighter to explain what the royal family do for the uk is a good idea [sic]."

A fourth referenced the duties carried out by the Royal Family, writing: "Not true at all lol I’m not a lover of the royals but any means but they do more for this country than just ‘existing’ [sic]."

A fifth wrote: "Around 2bn a year in tourism. too many knocks to the head and not enough reading laa [sic]."

Meanwhile, a sixth referenced the jobs members of the Royal Family have held over the years.

They wrote: "I mean Harry done tours in Afghanistan. Prince Phillip was in the Royal Navy and also in the RAF and William was in the RAF [sic]."

However, there were people who agreed with the Liverpudlian fighter.

One wrote: “He’s right, we pay for everything,” with another adding: "He’s so right."

Someone else agreed, writing: "Love this guy, he is right on what he says."

Pimblett isn't shy to tell it how it is and defended Liverpool fans for booing the national anthem at the FA Cup final last month.

As a Liverpool fan, Pimblett understood why his fellow Reds booed 'God Save The Queen' and went after Curtis Woodhouse for criticising them.

He's previously banned The Sun newspaper from asking a question at one of his pre-fight press conferences, due to their reporting on the Hillsborough disaster.
