This Morning viewers have been left making a plea to the show’s bosses after noticing a recurring theme this week. Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were back at the helm of the ITV daytime show on Thursday.
For their last show of the week, they were joined by the two leading stars of new Netflix series Heartstopper and spoke to broadcaster Julia Bradbury. The hosts spoke to Julia about her upcoming ITV documentary which follows her very personal experience of breast cancer, featuring emotional and frank video diary entries to her navigating the ‘c’ word with her young children.
Josie Gibson also made a return to the show but she was once again out and about. This time she was at a farm in Rutland where she was trying a new craze – cow cuddling. The segment saw Phillip having to issue an early warning to viewers as to not try it themselves at home.
Later in the programme, it was time for the latest fashion segment and with Downton Abbey heading back to the big screen with a twist as this time the Crawley’s are taking the drama to the French Riviera, Lisa Faulkner was showing viewers what Très Chic outfits they should be adding to their wardrobe.
But viewers were quickly noticing a theme as former Made In Chelsea star turned This Morning regular Georgia Toffolo has been presenting the show’s competition segment from one of the movie’s locations. Earlier this week she took viewers on a glamorous trip to the real-life villa where filming took place.
Not only that, on Monday’s show Holly and Phillip sat down with Downton Abbey’s newest star Hugh Dancy, who is playing the director of a film being shot at Downton.
It comes ahead of the release of the ITV period drama’s second big-screen outing, Downton Abbey: A New Era, which hits cinemas on Friday (April 29). But This Morning viewers have been left completely unimpressed.
