This Morning viewers have been left absolutely baffled after the live show was thrown into chaos this morning (9 February) as they experienced a major 'disruption'.
Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary were presenting the ITV programme when, seemingly all of a sudden, the show came back from ads and started showing random segments before a message appeared apologising for the disruption to service.
The official This Morning X (formerly Twitter) account has since issued a statement on the matter.
It reads: "Apologies for the technical issues, we'll be back with you as soon as possible!"
However, that's not stopped viewers rushing to the social media platform to share their thoughts on the bizarre situation.
One Twitter user claimed: "As they went into break the mics picked up them saying 'Well Done' to each other as well.... I'm so nosey I wanna knoooowwww."
A second penned: "Something going on off screen before they went off air. @radioleary glancing anxiously behind Alison to his left. Hope all is okay."
"Whatever the technical issue was, it's taken the wheels off the show - Alison and Dermot are all over the place. Wonder which segments have been scrapped in that 15 minutes of down-time," a third chimed in.
A fourth wrote: "Really bizarre to just come off air, must be something big.
"Dermot didn’t look right before they switched off, you could even hear Alison say 'well done' and he replied saying thank you before it cut."
"Hopefully we will be back after the adverts lol" added a final Twitter user.
The presenting duo then appeared back on screen around five minutes later where the blamed 'gremlins' in the system for interrupting their broadcast.
Alison told viewers: "Welcome back to this morning. Now, we do apologise, we’ve been having a few gremlins in the system."
Turning to Dermot, she added: "We’re sorting it, aren’t we?"
They also referenced the clips that had been showing during the 'technical issues' including one from Josie Gibson and Julia Bradbury.
Dermot then said: "Absolutely, but three lovely films to watch as well while we were at it - Josie Gibson, and then Megan McCubbin and Julia Bradbury.
"It’s almost like Gyles went backstage and fiddled with a couple of buttons so he could have a nice lie-down!"
Giles then went on to joke: "When I'm on, my wife turns the sound down."
