One scene saw Katie explain that she did not think her Manchester-born host 'dressed British', prompting viewers to brand her 'ignorant'.

She said: 'You can't blame the whole of the Muslims for one person's mindless act of terror can you?

Just because they choose to live their life differently to me doesn't mean they're any less welcome to be here.

She said at the start: 'Banning the headdresses and burkas, I think it would make a lot of people feel a lot happier, a lot safer.

I wouldn't want to sit next to them because I'd automatically assume they're going to blow something up.'Katie took part in the experiment in a bid to learn how it feels to be a Muslim in modern Britain, in an age of terrorist attacks and rising instances of anti-Muslim hate crimes.

'For Saima if she came here and her family came here they'd have that abuse all the time wouldn't they?

It would be relentless.'At the beginning of the documentary Katie admitted her prejudices about Muslims, confessing that she had once left a shop because her daughter was left 'frightened' when a woman wearing a burka entered.

She was tasked with chaperoning a date between two young people and awkwardly sat and watched as they got to know each other.

It was obvious that Katie didn't understand the custom, saying afterwards: 'What the hell was that all about?

An outraged Katie was left visibly shaken by the incident, saying: 'That's what they have to put up with all the time don't they? Absolutely no harm.'And what did they [mean] about blowing things up and stuff like that? It just sickens me the stuff they've shouted to me but it's only a few days isn't it?
