However, those viewers looking for a little light entertainment relief from politics were left outraged this morning by the decision to pull the hit shows.

Writing on their social media pages, like Facebook and Twitter, This Morning said: “We're off air this morning due to the coverage of the #ElectionResults2019.”

Annoyed viewers were not happy about the announcement, with one writing: “Why I am fed up about hearing about it now I wanted some light entertainment.” [sic]

Another shared: “Omg why on earth have they taken This Morning off. Sick of listening to election and politics crap.”

A third commented: “Do we need extended coverage of the results?! haven't we had enough!”
