This Morning fans call for show to be axed as its had its day after Phil exit

ITV viewers have called for This Morning to come off air as they slam the show and say it's "had it's day" since host Phillip Schofield announced his exit.

Phillip announced he would leave the ITV daytime show after 21 years on Saturday (20 May), as he stepped down amidst an ongoing 'feud' with Holly Willoughby.

Presenters Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary have been drafted in to present the show today, where they addressed the news of Phillip's exit from the weekend.

Viewers at home reacted to the news of Phillip's exit as they declared it was time for the show to come off air.

Speaking on Twitter, one viewer tweeted: "Think maybe #ThisMorning has had its day ! Time for something new."

Another agreed as they wrote: "Someone please put this show out of its misery."

"Think they should pull #ThisMorning. Altogether. People only tune in to see the fall out.," said a third.

Another added: "Even with him deciding to 'leave' – Schofield is still allowed to dictate the way #thisMorning has handled this situation. Putting Holly on a 'Holiday' just kicks the can down the road. Best idea would be her on the programme and closing the last few weeks down."

The show started with Alison and Dermott addressing Phillip's exit as Alison said: "We can't start today's show without paying tribute to the man who spent the last two decades sitting on the This Morning sofa, Phillip Schofield.

Dermot added: "As a show, everyone on and off screen at ITV on This Morning want to say a huge thank you to Phil for what he has done to make the show such a success over the last 21 years."

Dermot then revealed that Holly is taking a break for the next two weeks for half term and will be back on June 5.

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
