Fans of This Morning and Loose Women will be gutted on Thursday as both shows are cancelled to make way for the Rugby World Cup.

Instead of This Morning airing at 10:30am, a special edition of Tipping Point’s best finals will begin at 10:25am after Judge Rinder.

The Rugby World Cup coverage will start at 11am as England play the USA at 11:45am.

ITV will return to normal scheduling at 2pm for the news before Tipping Point airs at 4pm followed by The Chase at 5pm.

Unfortunately for daytime telly fans, This Morning and Loose Women are set to be taken off air next week and into October.

Here are the matches scheduled to air on ITV’s main channel that could result in changes to the usual weekday timings of This Morning and Loose Women ahead of the quarter and semi-final stages…

Thursday, October 3 – Ireland vs Russia (11.15am on ITV)

One person raged: “You have FOUR bloody channels but you cancel @thismorning @loosewomen and I see it is not much better next week so it wont be any better until the rugby is finished.

“Do you know how many OAP and house bound people rely on you for company? Shame on you.”

“Do ITV really think that regular daytime viewers want to watch rugby?” questioned yet another social media user.
