Viewers are already complaining...
There’s no denying that yesterday’s general election was momentous.
It was confirmed early this morning that there would be a hung parliament, meaning that while the Conservatives have the biggest lead, no party has won enough seats to reach a majority.
Of course, there are a whole load of questions that need answering. So understandably, a number of daytime TV shows have been cancelled in favour of rolling news coverage.
Programmes affected include This Morning and Loose Women.
TM had warned viewers yesterday, with a Tweet on its official page reading: ‘That’s all for today! We’re not on air tomorrow because of @ITV’s election result programme but we’ll be back on Mon with a jam-packed show [sic].’
But some fans were still pretty upset when they realised they wouldn’t be getting their Ruth and Eamonn fix today.
One Tweeted: ‘Not happy with this morning and loose women being cancelled for an election news special :((((,’ while another wrote: ‘OUTRAGED that @ITVLorraine, @thismorning, & @loosewomen are all cancelled today due to the ITV News Election Results! [sic].’
TBH, we reckon Eamonn would’ve been a tad tired to head into the studio anyway.

He was up into the wee hours Tweeting about the results, captioning an old photo of himself: ‘First time I haven’t worked on a #GeneralElection since 1983. This my first one 34 years ago. #Election2017.’
Let’s be honest, the election is way more important than This Morning (soz, guys). And it’ll be back on Monday!
