THIS Morning viewers have threatened to turn off their TV screens after an ‘awful’ start to the show.
Today’s programme began with a pre-recorded musical segment, which saw talented actors dance and sing for the cameras.
It was the cast of Mary Poppins from the West End show performing Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, with a spectacle of colour greeting viewers as they switched on today.
Show host Holly Willoughby, 41, even flew in with an umbrella at the end, via the magic of CGI.
But fans weren’t loving the performance as much as show presenters Holly and Phil.
One person wrote: “Switched on the TV to find another #ThisMorning musical, switches off very quickly.”

Another said: “Make it stop. For the love of God,” a third added: “Too frantic for me!”
A fourth in agreement wrote: “Awful. Just awful,” while a fifth said: “Well that's put me off ever seeing Mary Poppins.”
It comes after fans lashed out at the show earlier this week, as they were left confused over whether they were being filmed live.
This Morning has still been broadcasting over the festive period, with a show going out on Christmas Day.

The pre-recorded show – featuring Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield – was aired on Christmas morning.
However, while fans expected the programme to go back to their live schedule, they were left disappointed on Thursday.
Viewers quickly noticed how the show had been pre-recorded before Christmas, with much of the action throwback clips from earlier on in the year.
The show included an interview with Jonathan Bailey aired in April, and Alison Hammond meeting James Cordon, in August.
Many fans hit out that the post-Christmas show wasn't being filmed live, and took to Twitter to complain.
"Why are they patronising us by pretending the shows this week are live?" one furious fan penned. "The shows were recorded when they were off air for the World Cup."
Another hit out: "Today's programme was recorded on the 22 November! Check out Holly's Instagram."
