This morning brings a very rare change to the ITV show with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield
This morning brought a very rare change to the ITV show Wednesday.
Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were back on screens to host the ITV Daytime Show.
The latest episode saw them launch a campaign to help spread awareness about one of the biggest taboos – menopause – along with the usual food and beauty segments, and celebrity conversations.
But there was another story they were talking about that dominated their “This Morning’s View” segment.

Holly and Phil were joined by Camilla Tominey and Nick Ferrari as they spoke about the latest headlines in the news, especially those surrounding the latest government scandal.
The conversation preceded the Prime Minister’s first public appearance since an email from his chief private secretary leaked on Monday inviting Downing Street staff to meet in May 2020 to “make the most of the good weather”.
They then returned to history later, with This Morning airing live in the House of Commons for Prime Minister’s Questions as Boris Johnson apologized for attending a “bring your own booze” rally to the number 10.
Viewers then watched Holly and Phil be relieved of their hospitality duties and the program cut at Westminster as Mr Johnson was challenged for his appearance at the event, which was held in Downing Street Garden during the first national lockdown.
Martin Reynolds, Mr Johnson’s main private secretary, is said to have emailed more than 100 Downing Street employees inviting them to the party on May 20, 2020.
At the start of PMQs, co-host Phillip Schofield told viewers: “It is exactly noon and we are heading towards Westminster, where Prime Minister Boris Johnson is about to address the House of Commons.”
After the Prime Minister was challenged by Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer, This Morning returned to the studio where Holly and Phil were joined by Camilla, who is the associate editor of the Daily Telegraph.
This morning is rarely devoted to breaking news and the same time slot Monday this week featured an interview with Coronation Street actor Bill Roache, while Tuesday’s episode featured a fashion segment on how to add “a little January joy” to your wardrobe.
Phillip said as they walked back to the studio: “He admitted he was there for about 25 minutes (and) should have said they all should have gone inside. Was that a job? what a party? “
He also read Mr. Reynolds’ email inviting staff to the meeting.
Camilla said the apology had “certainly been a mea culpa” but wondered if it would be enough to save his post as prime minister.
One of the other times This Morning switched to another show was when Prince Philip’s death was announced.
Eammonn Holmes and Ruth Langford were hosting the show as news broke with a statement from Buckingham Palace on behalf of the Queen.
The host duo had to abruptly end their This Morning show and viewers were then taken to the ITV News studio.
