This Morning was back with a bang on Monday morning, as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield returned after the Christmas break.
But things soon descended into chaos when one viewer ended up winning a trip to her own home town. As part of the show’s new longer running time, the presenters launched a game which involves giving away prizes to those who answer the phone with a special password.
As the game got under way, Holly and Phil spun a giant wheel in the studio which included giveaways of either a UK break, a Europe holiday or a ‘star holiday’. Anne was the first winner and after a quick spin of the wheel, it was announced she would be getting a two night stay at a five-star hotel in Scottish capital Edinburgh.
Phil then asked Anne: “Where do you live?” to which she replied: “Quite near Edinburgh”.
In classic Phil and Holly style, the pair burst into hysterics, before Phil said: “We’re gonna spin again, unless you wanna go to your home town?” Holly then added: “You could win a holiday like somewhere in the world, do you want to?”
To which Phil replied: “Spin it again otherwise she’d just be going down the road.” Unfortunately, as the pair spun the wheel again, it ended up back on UK break for a second time. Luckily, Anne ended up getting herself a trip to Florence in Italy when Phil moved the wheel to a ‘Europe holiday’ himself.
This comes as This Morning was broadcast at 10am for the first time today, instead of 10.30am as part of ITV’s new schedule.
