This Morning Slammed By Viewers Over Ant McPartlin’s Arrest

THIS Morning left viewers mystified today after Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield didn’t mention the biggest showbiz story of the day on today’s show.

The Sun exclusively revealed how Ant McPartlin, 42, was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving yesterday afternoon in South London.

However, viewers were left baffled when the incident wasn’t mentioned at all by Holly and Phil on today’s instalment.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “Interesting no mention made on #ThisMorning of Ant McPartlin. Lorraine did mention him on her show but more or less excused the drink driving & said there’s no reason he shouldn’t do his show on Saturday.”

Another said: “Surely they have to mention ITV’s Ant’s drink driving at some point?#Thismorning”.

A third said: “Elephant in the room this morning…why hasn’t Ant been mentioned? #ThisMorning.”

The incident was discussed on today’s Lorraine and she predicted it will be business as usual for Ant and co-host Declan Donnelly on this weekend’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Speaking to The Sun’s Dan Wootton on today’s show, she said: “Poor guy, he will be there on Saturday night, a lot of people are speculating he won’t be there for Saturday Night Takeaway. He will.
