This Morning viewers were left out in the cold today as the episode finished nearly 90 minutes earlier than usual.
After catching up with guest Oti Mabuse, who can't wait for the return of Dancing on Ice, co-presenter Phillip Schofield announced: "We are finishing the show early today to cross live to Julie Etchingham to the ITV news room as they bring you coverage of that Autumn Budget."
Disinterested in the political landscape, Twitter quickly filled up with responses from fans who were eager to welcome Phil and Holly Willoughby back onto their screens.
"Hands up if you'd rather have another hour or so of #ThisMorning than news coverage of the Chancellor's statement," read one tweet.
Another pair of users went on to share: "Should of put this depressing [poo emoji] on the bbc #thismorning" and "So they've binned #ThisMorning for the #AutumnBudget why not keep news on news channels, there's enough of them."
"Thought something bad had happened when they cut to the news #ThisMorning," someone else wrote, before a fifth questioned: "What happened to this morning??? #ThisMorning."
On Wednesday, Holly treated the This Morning faithful to a lovely cameo from her pet golden retriever, Bailey, as dog expert Graeme Hall joined the sofa.
"The weather might be miserable but we've got just the thing to cheer us up. Bailey is here!" the co-presenter began. "She's grown but not much. She's quite a small golden retriever. She wanted to come say hello, didn't you?"
As you'd expect, the adorable pooch's appearance caused fans to go wild on social media, with three reactions reading: "Bailey is so cute!", "Omg how amazing to see Bailey you look beautiful as always" and "Luv luv luv Bailey is on a work day out with mummy."
