Introduction: Viewer Backlash Over “This Morning” Segment
Viewers of the daytime TV show “This Morning” expressed their dissatisfaction with the programme as they tuned in for the first time that week.
The show, hosted by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, marked the beginning of the first full week following Holly Willoughby’s departure.
However, their response was far from positive.
Clown Segment: Chasing the Killer Clown
During the programme, Alison and Dermot engaged with Isla Traquair, who was reporting live from North Ayrshire.
The focus of the segment was a mysterious killer clown who had been spotted in Skelmorlie, donning an outfit reminiscent of Pennywise.
The clown had left red balloons in various locations, instilling fear among the locals.
As Isla provided updates from the scene, the clown appeared behind her, prompting Alison to exclaim, “It’s behind you. It’s behind you, Isla. Look!”
Exclusive Interview with the Clown
The show took an unusual turn as Isla conducted a “world exclusive” interview with the clown.
She also conversed with local residents who shared their perspectives on this eerie character, who had made an appearance in the town during every October for the past three years.
Viewer Backlash: Discontent on Social Media
Viewers were far from pleased with the show’s content and took to social media, including X (formerly known as Twitter), to criticize the segment.
Many viewers considered it as scraping the barrel for content and expressed their embarrassment for both the presenters and themselves.
Some commented on the questionable quality of the content and found the segment inappropriate.
Holly Willoughby’s Departure
Holly Willoughby, who had been a part of “This Morning” for 14 years, recently announced her departure from the show.
She cited family reasons as the primary factor behind her decision. In a heartfelt statement, she described her goodbye as a difficult one and expressed gratitude to the loyal viewers who had been with her throughout her journey on the show.
Show’s Tribute to Holly
Following Holly’s announcement, “This Morning” paid tribute to the star. It acknowledged her significant contribution to the show and her special connection with the viewers.
The show recognized that her departure marked the end of one chapter but anticipated many more to come in the show’s story.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
