“We’ve been telling you to expect the Prime Minister on our sofa and we’re going to have to disappoint,” Phil said.

“We were told this morning that all would become clear. But obviously the reason she’s not here today is to do with Brexit.”

He said the Prime Minister “promised” This Morning her “first sit-down interview”, adding: “She’s sent her apologies but she’s said hopefully next week she’ll be able to do the chat.

“So I assume during the course of today it will unfold as to why she’s not here.”

Viewers were quick to react to the news with one person writing on Twitter: “So no @theresa_may then? So she’s not going to come and talk about putting out the bins and washing up? Damn!”

Another wrote: “Eesh! That is bad that Theresa May backed out of appearing on #ThisMorning Blaming Brexit is a poor excuse.”

A third added: “When you were waiting for Theresa May to explain herself on #ThisMorning then she doesn’t turn up.”
