This Morning

This Morning fans were treated to an I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! 2018 reunion earlier today when John Barrowman MBE stepped in to host the show alongside Holly Willoughby. Of course, Holly temporarily gave up her spot on the sofa last November when she flew out to Australia to present with Declan Donnelly, whose usual companion Ant McPartlin was taking time out of the spotlight.

John, who came third on the show to King of the Jungle Harry Redknapp and runner-up Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack, co-presented the show with Holly today (21st Jan) as Phillip was having the day off - and fans thought he was FABULOUS!

Although many regular viewers were sad not to see Phillip, plenty of others were absolutely loving the former Doctor Who actor on the show - and even called for him to take up a more permanent residence on the show on Twitter.

One wrote, 'I'm loving John Barrowman on This Morning!' as another added, 'I love John, please invite him to host more often!' and one other commented, 'John Barrowman on This Morning is the best idea ever.'

When he rapped with Fleur East and Malique Thompson-Dwyer

When he was SUPER blunt about Malique's departure

Obviously, he wasn't being mean about Malique - he just meant that they'd most likely be seeing each other in a matter of days!

When he spoke about the time he ran Sandra over

Harry unfortunately wasn't being super observant two years ago, and told his campmates, "I used to think I was a good driver but I had a nightmare and ran over my wife one day. She got out the car and I thought she'd crossed the road and I pulled forward and she fell into the road and a bus stopped literally yards away and the most amazing part of the story probably, my grand-daughter is sitting on top of the bus and sees all of this. Unreal."

When the campmates got split into teams

His competitive nature came out when they got split into teams, and he became one of the Roos.

When he had some words of comfort for Fleur East

Before Fleur took on the Gore Seasons Pizza Bushtucker trial, Harry had his very own unique way of comforting her.

When he had some thoughts about Fleur's music

In the Jungle Arms, the campmates took part in a little karaoke, when Fleur's song 'Sax' came on and they all tried to learn her dance routine. Harry wasn't convinced.

When Noel had to hold a yabby in his mouth

During the Fall of Emperor Noel Bushtucker trial, Harry and Noel had to take it in turns to hold creatures in their mouths - and when Noel held a yabby in his mouth, Harry couldn't control himself, and yelled, "YABBA DABBA DOOOO."

Although there's no word on why Phillip took the day off, he will be back tomorrow as he was only scheduled to be off today's show.

This comes after the first ever weekend showing of This Morning, which aired yesterday (Sunday 20th Jan) with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, who take over hosting the show on Fridays and when Phil and Holly are away on holiday.
