This Morning viewers ‘terrified’ over ‘creepy’ Father Christmas

This Morning viewers were a little concerned when Father Christmas did a phone in, and many found him to be rather "creepy."

Santa Claus was on the show to speak to little boys and girls in a phone in, to spread the Christmas cheer by telling them all about their gifts and whether they had made the nice list.

But fans of the show watching at home were a little confused by the segment, and thought Santa came off a little "creepy" with his constant "ho, ho, ho-ing" and chatter.

One person said: "That Santa on # thismorning is creepy af # dontcometomyhouse"

Another said: "If this Santa keeps laughing I’m gonna punch a hole through my tv # ThisMorning"

A third added: "Now I understand why kids cry when they go see Santa. He’s creepy af # ThisMorning"

Earlier in the show, before the phone in, Father Christmas told the viewers what he wanted to discuss, saying there were only "four sleeps" until Christmas.

Eamonn quickly corrected him, looking pretty confused as he told him it was actually five days left.

But when the phone in happened, Santa made a couple of comments about being able to "find" the children, even if they moved house.

Of course it was thoroughly innocent, but fans at home were a little concerned.

One said: "Even @ OfficialSanta doesn’t know how many sleeps it is until Christmas Day, lol # ThisMorning # Christmas # SantaClaus"
