This Morning viewers are sick to the back teeth of coronavirus segments. 

Indeed, some who watch the flagship ITV show wish it would stay away from mentioning the killer virus at all.

And while no one wants to be enduring this global pandemic, it seems there are TV fans who want to escape it while watching the box.

Monday’s show had already started badly for some of those observing at home.

Many were left divided by seeing Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on their screens.

The presenting duo are stepping in for regular hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby this week.

We need some good news.

Phillip and Holly are taking a break during the half-term.

Nonetheless, some viewers were delighted to see Eamonn and Ruth on the sofa.

Meanwhile, others were complaining about the coronavirus coverage.
