ITV's live shows were put on hold on Thursday morning and replaced with pre-recorded segments after a bomb scare rocked the studio.
Phil Schofield and Holly Willoughby immediately were cut off in the opening moments of Thursdays episode when news of the threat broke.
Their live report was replaced with pre-recorded footage of This Morning's tree-hugging segment followed by an interview with Britain's dullest man.
Meanwhile, text that read: 'This is a pre-recorded programme' appeared at the bottom of the screen.
Following the abrupt break, confused viewers took to Twitter to ask what had happened in the ITV studio.
"Checks Twitter to make sure I'm not the only one wondering what has just happened to the live feed 😂 #ThisMorning" tweeted one user.
"Someone has pressed the wrong button #ThisMorning" wrote another.
Soon after, a brief statement was released by both This Morning and Loose Women, which read: "We apologise for the break in live programming today. We are currently running pre-recorded content and hope to be back with you soon."
Wood Lane and White City tube stations were also closed down as police dealt with the incident.
Metropolitan Police have since confirmed that the situation has been diffused.
A statement from the Metropolitan Police read: "At 11:14hrs on Thursday, 10 March, police were called to reports of a security alert at Wood Lane, White City. "It was reported a suspicious item had been discovered.
The area was evacuated as a precaution and White City and Wood Lane tube stations were temporarily closed. The incident was stood down shortly before 12:49hrs. An investigation is ongoing."
