16 Reasons Everyone Still Loves "This Morning"

Where would we be without Katie Hopkins, sensationalist interviews and Philip Schofield?

This Morning is now 25 years old!

They did a show from their old home in the Liverpool Docks, and for one day only reintroduced the historic weather map!

1. So why has the show lasted so long? Well, it’s because of the theme tune for starters.

Tip: this post is a lot more fun when you leave the song playing in the background.

2. And Phil and Holly’s on-screen chemistry of course.

3. And you watch because you secretly want these TV experts to be your grandparents.


4. But it’s not just that. You watch it because of their non-stop hard-hitting interviews.

8. And because you get to hate-watch this big troll.

9. You also like it because they tell you when exactly everything is for no reason.

10. And because you are enticed by Phillip Schofield’s silver hair.

Although it doesn’t look as scenic when you look at the studios from the river.
