Good Morning Britain viewers were surprised to see Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid presenting Friday morning's show, replacing the other GMB stars in the studio.
Normally, Piers and Susanna would take Fridays off, leaving presenters such as Ben Shephard, Adil Ray, Charlotte Hawkins, Ranvir Singh, or Kate Garraway to lead the show.
Justifying the replacement, Piers explained he and Susanna had been recruited to cover the US election this week, hosting each day as Biden VS Trump continues.
He said: "Don't check your TVs, it is a Friday and we are here."
Piers then explained they were working "because the enormous election news continues to reverberate" throughout the country.
Taking to Twitter, viewers speculated over Piers and Susanna's five-day week, with many taking it as an affront against the other ITV stars.
One said: "By persisting with Piers and Susanna are @itv executives saying that other #GMB presenters aren't good enough to host the #USElectionResults."
"#GMB Does Piers and Susanna having to do 5 days during a big story week an admission that the other presenters are only there to tick boxes @GMB," wrote a second.
"Why are Piers & Susannah presenting on days they don't normally do? Why are the other presenters not capable of talking about the US election? I have a feeling they will be gutted if the results are confirmed over the wkend," added a third.
