Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were back today on This Morning talking about all things lockdown as the UK begins to ease its restrictions. However, when the pair came back from a break, the ITV show suffered a technical issue which raised alarm bells with the hosts after they thought the show had been thrown into a blackout. 

With the UK beginning to lift its lockdown after three months in isolation, it means that schools and shops are returning to normal.

Holly and Phillip returned to the ITV daytime show today to discuss this but also how little things like using public toilets will change for good. 

The two also spoke to Pauline Wood, head of Grange Park Primary in Sunderland, who has been suspended from her post for comments made about teachers during the lockdown. 

When the hosts came back from their first break after the chat, however, the show was thrown into chaos as television screens across the country were plunged into darkness.

Phillip quickly said: “Oh hello, what is happening here?” closely followed by Holly who shouted, “Blackout!”.

Phillip added: “We’ve managed to stay on all this time, it would be a shame to go off now!”

Holly then quipped: “Who knew a public toilet would take us off air!”
