Richard and Judy only recently reunited as presenters last October, hosting their old ITV show This Morning together.

Viewers said then that they still possessed the old magic. And they are equally delighted to see them back in another old slot of theirs.

One complaint

Fans do have one complaint about the teatime show, though: it’s just not long enough.

Numerous people have shared the criticism on Twitter.

“We need an hour-long show. 30 minutes isn’t long enough.” wrote one.

‘A warm hug’

Another pointed out: “Richard and Judy back on TV talking about books is like a warm hug, 30 mins simply isn’t enough though.”

“We really need more than 30 minutes,” echoed a third.

Someone else congratulated the producer, saying: “Did you see all the tweets demanding more than 30 minutes? What a hit!”
