Fans of ITV’s This Morning are worried one of the show’s most popular segments has been axed.
Viewers have been taking to social media all week to ask what’s happened to the often chaotic but nevertheless popular game feature Spin to Win.
It hasn’t been part of the programme this week, which has seen Friday hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford take over presenting duties from regulars Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, who are away on their half-term breaks.
Speculating on Twitter, one viewer asked, “Late to the party, did I miss Spin to Win? #ThisMorning” and wrote in a later tweet, “Right, I’ve been notified Spin to Win has been cancelled without me winning #ThisMorning”.
Strange they don’t say anything.
Another said: “Is Spin To Win cancelled all week or permanently? #ThisMorning.”
Someone else replied sarcastically: “Not sure. It was working out so well #thismorning.”
“Strange they don’t say anything,” tweeted another, adding: “I wonder if they got too many complaints. I also noticed the prizes were not as good last week.”

Luckily for fans of the segment, an ITV spokesperson told the Mirror that Spin to Win will be back on the show next week.
Spin to Win has had a somewhat bumpy ride when it was introduced to the This Morning line-up.
During an instalment of Spin to Win in an episode last week, Phil and Holly were gobsmacked when one contestant admitted he was a doctor – in the middle of seeing a patient.
The pair got in touch with a caller named Rhodri and Phil asked him: “Why did it take you so long to answer the phone?”
He explained: “Because I’m a doctor working on the wards in Cardiff.”
“Oh my god, that’s a very good excuse,” Holly told him. “Did you just take a chance and pick up the phone and say the password? Because obviously you’re not watching.”
“No I’m with a patient, I just walked out,” Rhodri confessed.
Visibly stunned, the presenting duo sprang into action to get the game going, as Holly said: “Right were going to do this really quickly.”
