It happened during the phone-in segment

This Morning viewers have called out the show for displaying a typo during a segment.

On Wednesday's programme, hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford spoke to viewers who called in for advice on weight loss.

A viewer, who was named 'Laura', explained that she's struggling to lose weight and it's making her miserable.

However, as she was speaking to Eamonn, Ruth and agony aunt Deidre Sanders, viewers spotted there was a typo in the caption.

It read: "I'm can't lose weight & it's making me miserable."

It wasn't long before fans called out the show on Twitter.

One person said: "'I’m can’t lose weight'... teach your interns basic grammar please #ThisMorning."

Another wrote: "'I’m can’t lose weight'... does nobody actually check what’s being put on screen?"

A third tweeted: "'I'm can't lose weight...' What?!"

Another shocked viewer added: "Come on #ThisMorning, time to employ a proofreader... that typo during the weight call-in was on screen for ages!"

During the phone-in segment earlier this week, Ruth walked off the show "upset" after a woman called in and described symptoms that had been similar to Ruth's late sister Julia's, who passed away in June after a short illness.

The viewer called in to ask how she can cope with her society anxiety and depression, which Ruth's sister Julia suffered from.

Eamonn explained to viewers: "This is featured in Ruth's life, she's upset now and has had to leave the studio because of her sister, who was a chronic depressive.

"No matter what kind of help and medication was there, it didn't really make much difference."

Ruth revealed her sister had passed away in June.

She wrote on social media at the time: "My lovely sis Julia has sadly died after a very long illness. My heart is completely broken.

"She was the kindest and most gentle soul and I will miss her forever. As I am sure you will appreciate I need to take time to grieve with my family. Thank you for your understanding."
