ITV’s This Morning to remain on air as Government classes it an ‘Essential Service’

At the start of today’s show Phil and Holly informed viewers why the show will continue to air during the Covid-19 Crisis…

“The government has classed us as an essential service for the time being,” Phil said. “To bring you the latest news on the virus, to answer your concerns with our doctors, to offer useful advice and to hopefully lighten the load as only This Morning knows how.”

The show is working on skeleton staff meaning the presenters and guests have to do their own hair and make-up.
