This Morning viewers were left utterly infuriated today over a guest's "ridiculous" suggestion to postpone Christmas until March.
Gyles Brandreth appeared on the ITV daytime show alongside former Coronation Street actress Nicola Thorp as they discussed the latest news regarding the "game changing" Oxford vaccine.
The pair also spoke about the current England lockdown amid fears it could be extended beyond December 2.
Gyles went on to suggest that Christmas Day is postponed to March, when it will likely be safer for everyone to meet up with families.

Unsurprisingly, his remarks did not go down well with viewers, who blasted his suggestion as "ridiculous" and flocked to Twitter to comment.
One tweeted: "‘Delaying Christmas till March’ is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard #ThisMorning."

While another fumed: "#ThisMorning waiting until March 25th for Christmas. I'll pass. I'll still celebrate it with my bubble on December 25th then start the New Year 1st January like always. Wouldn't feel right in March."
A third wrote: "Christmas in March is stupid, unless people get time off work then, like do in december. And there's no guarantee wouldn't have to cancel in March. Then we basically have no christmas at all! All stores would need to restock seasonal products #ThisMorning @thismorning."
"Did I just watch a man on @thismorning try to tell the UK to postpone xmas til the 26th March?! Because we should celebrate Jesus' conception instead…try explaining that to the kids! What a delightful xmas dinner table discussion #Christmas2020 #ThisMorning," another commented.
One quipped: "Christmas in March? #ThisMorning."
"#ThisMorning people have approx 80 and more christmas days in a lifetime. Just 1 , 1!! You may not be able to do what you like? I mean cmon! It's one day with a load of decorations up !! Giles idea of march is just stupid," another raged.
