This Morning has seen several different stars front the show this week alone

ITV viewers have slammed daytime show This Morning over its ever-changing rotation of presenters.

This year has seen a major change in the makeup of the show after Phillip Schofield left his role in May and co-host Holly Willoughby announced her exit in October.

In the weeks since Willoughby's exit, presenters Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond have become the faces of the ITV daytime alongside a long list of other presenters.

The likes of Cat Deeley, Rochelle Humes, Craig Doyle, Josie Gibson and several others have all stepped up to the plate in recent months.

However, this week alone appears to have been the final straw for fans who desire some element of consistency as not a single pairing has presented on consecutive days in the past week.

After Emma Willis and Rylan Clark closed the show on Friday, O'Leary and Christine Lampard opened Monday's instalment.

O'Leary was back on Tuesday but this time around he was joined by The Saturdays singer Mollie King.

On Wednesday, it was O'Leary's turn to be absent while King made her comeback for a second day in a row but this time alongside Andi Peters.

And today, Thursday, December 14, O'Leary returned but King was gone and replaced by Lisa Snowdon.

The chopping and changing of presenters led a number of viewers to take to X, formerly Twitter, to call for an end to the rotation - with some threatening to "switch off" for good.

"#ThisMorning I wish This Morning would sort out their presenters, I'm gonna have to turn off soon they seem to get worse each day," one fan fumed on Thursday.

A second agreed: "All this flipflopping of presenters just shows what an absolute mess #thismorning is in! Continuity people!!!"

Another quipped: "Have they started picking the names of presenters out of hats? #ThisMorning."

While a fourth hit out: "Can we be done with it and have @Rylan and @EmmaWillis please? Dermot and Alison on a Friday. With Josie as a holiday host!!"

Elsewhere, a fifth joked: "Just had my #ThisMorning presenter summons through! See you all on Monday!"

And the complaint kept on coming: "Had to turn it off within minutes as #ThisMorning is scraping the barrel with Andi Peters. What an awful presenter he is. Stick to the easy competitions mate."

There were some who defended the format, however, as one fan argued: "I’ve been reading in the press that viewers are fed up of all the different presenters on @thismorning.

"Personally I much prefer it. I like it on @GMB too. Gives more people a career leg up and stops TV being saturated with the same faces over and over… and over! #ThisMorning."
