The duo had promised fans they would be back to front the programme they previously helmed for 13 years after it launched in 1988 in a comeback appearance last October.
Richard opened the show: “We did warn you, we said we would come back.
“Hello and welcome to your Friday This Morning with Richard and Judy.”
And while many of those watching at home were thrilled to see the couple again, one moment during a chat with Ant and Dec left some observers completely gobsmacked.
Someone tell Judy not to pick her feet on telly.
At one point during a segment with the Geordie stars, Judy pulled off her shoes and jumped into a buggy with Richard to go to the Saturday Night Takeaway studio.

“Judy picking her toes in the buggy! #thismorning” exclaimed one person on Twitter.
“Was Judy really picking her toes while talking to Ant & Dec?! #ThisMorning,” tweeted another, tagging their post with a queasy emoji.
A third social media user added: “I wish Judy Finnegan wouldnt pick her toes on live tv #thismorning.”
“Is Judy actually picking her feet on national television?! #ThisMorning,” pondered a fourth incredulous viewer.
Another shocked onlooker reflected: “Oh my days, why was Judy picking her feet live on #ThisMorning?!
“So gross, feel ill after watching that.”
“Someone tell Judy not to pick her feet on telly,” demanded someone else, picking up plenty of Likes from others in agreement.
However, someone else reckoned the bizarre moment made for great TV.
“Judy picking her feet in a golf trolley. Highlight of the day.#ThisMorning,” they wrote.
And another viewer joked: “I’d rather watch two hours of Judy picking her feet in ultraHD than ant n dec. #ThisMorning.”
