This Morning viewers angry after Holly and Phil replaced
Philip Schofield revealed in an Instagram post what had actually happened.
Viewers of This Morning were not happy when they tuned into the ITV programme today to find that Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield had been replaced without explanation.
You can imagine them all there - the night shift workers, stay at home parents, people who've pulled a sicky - sitting down on their living room sofa with a cup of tea, expecting to find the usual duo.
But: oh... oh no.
The stunned silence as they realise something is very, very wrong. The blinkered realisation that it is, in fact, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford they are looking at on the screen. The change of expression, through all shades of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and finally...
Well, saying that, people on Twitter never seem to quite get there, do they? Usually it's just stage two:
Putting This Morning on and seeing Eamonn and Ruth instead of Holly and Phil is like getting pizza with pineapple on, it just shouldn’t be allowed

The popular duo were nowhere to be seen as fans took to Twitter to express their rage at the regular pair's absence.
Eventually it turned out that Holmes and Ruth Langsford were brought in to present the show whilst Holly and Phil took the week off for half-term.
At least Phil appears to be enjoying himself.
