This Morning taken off air and replaced by ITV news special after Rishi Sunak is named PM | The Sun

THIS Morning has been taken off air today and replaced by an ITV News special.

The schedule shake-up comes after Rishi Sunak became the new leader of the Conservative Party and, as a result, the country's new prime minister.


The rest of the schedule remains unaffected with Loose Women airing as normal from 12.30pm.

Sunak, 42, is the youngest PM for 200 years and is the first British-Asian in the job.

He is also the UK’s first Hindu leader and saw his ­victory come at the start of the Diwali religious festival.

The ex-Chancellor, who will today meet King Charles, said becoming PM was the “greatest privilege of my life”. 

He also issued a “unite or die” warning to his party as he prepared to take over as PM.

The 41-year-old presenter threw her head back and yelled "noooo" before running towards the camera.

She shouted down the lens to express her frustration at the caller missing the chance to win money.

Before she started kicking off, Holly scolded co-host Phillip for talking to a viewer who didn't get through to play Spin to Win.

She said: "Don't make that mistake because as soon as I get to know them I feel bad."

"I always feel bad", insisted Phil.

They then started ringing the next This Morning fan – who answered with "hello" instead of the code word, "yabadabadoo".

That's when Holly flew into a hilarious "rage" after the viewer missed out on winning money.

Thankfully, the next caller answered correctly and went on to win £2,000.
