Will you watch a panto on the TV?

Holly said: “I’ve got to do it quickly because I’m getting too old to be Cinderella!”

Their pantomime chat comes after they formally announced there will be a This Morning panto this year.

They said they are doing it for viewers at home who won’t be able to see one live on stage in 2020.

It is widely being reported that pantomimes are cancelled nationwide due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Holly kicked off the Monday episode with: “2020 hasn’t been the year we all hoped it would be. Among the many things that have been cancelled it looks like there won’t be many pantomimes this Christmas.”

Phil then said: “Well, we couldn’t let that happen so today we can reveal, can I have a drum roll please? That this Christmas we are throwing a This Morning pantomime.”

Alison Hammond could be heard off screen shouting: “Oh no you’re not!”

But Holly reassured viewers with: “Oh yes we are! On Friday 11th December, we’ll be opening the curtains and bringing you some Christmas cheer as me, Phil and our entire This Morning family put on our fancy dress for our very own Christmas pantomime.”
