What did Stephen say?

He added: “Listen everybody at home, I know what you’re thinking, this is madness. All will be revealed this Saturday on Saturday Night Takeaway.”

“How you feeling about it?” he asked the hosts.

Holly said, “Really happy,” to which Phil added: “We’re really competitive as you well know.”

Stephen added: “It took social media by storm, honestly don’t miss the show!”

Viewers immediately took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Many were baffled by Stephen’s appearance as one said: “Omg @StephenMulhern on @thismorning.”

“Can’t wait till Saturday to find out what the heck is going on.”

Another wrote: “What is going on?”

However, others claimed they knew it was a prank.

One person said: “We all knew it was a prank Stephen.”

What did viewers say?

Another wrote: “#thismorning is involved with Saturday Night Takeaway?

“I’m truly shocked even though we all figured it out on Monday…”

A third tweeted: “Ah so all the weird stuff happening on @itv daytime was down to @antanddec.

“Stephen Mulhern gatecrashed @thismorning just now #ThisMorning.”

It comes after viewers criticised Holly and Phil for their behaviour during James’ cooking segment.

It saw Phil get a cramp in his arm and Holly make a dig at the appearance of James’ dessert.

She said: “I’m not being rude but it does taste better than it looks.”

One viewer wrote on Twitter: “Ant & Dec were definitely in their ears.”

However, this week’s Lorraine also caused some confusion.

Lorraine Kelly confused fans when she burped, yawned and complained about a fly during an interview with KSI.
