Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan sparked confusion from viewers on Monday's show as fans were stunned to see his hand vanish as he lifted it up while presenting with Susanna Reid.
As Piers ranted about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new show, he raised his hand in the air, and one viewer, Raha Fox, couldn't help noticing that it disappeared behind the split screen.
Haha asked: "Fascinating debate but I would like to know why @piersmorgan's left hand disappears in this shot?"
After clearly being inundated with messages about GMB using a split screen, she replied to their followers: "Piers fans I get it but it’s 2021 split screens have come a long way that can include both hands that’s all. Have a beautiful day."
Piers also got involved with the question himself, as he cheekily replied: "It’s magic…"
Haha responded to Piers: "Haha! You deserve a left hand @piersmorgan. I don’t even let a crooked necklace on-air I’ll fly to London and fix that. My news director would be proud."
Viewers know that due to social distancing rules on set, Piers and Susanna sit more than two feet apart while presenting the show, so use a split screen to create the illusion they're sat closer together than they actually are.
Meanwhile, Piers was not happy with Meghan and Harry as he kicked the show off with a furious rant about their much-anticipated interview with Oprah Winfrey in the US.
After showing a clip of Harry saying that he feared "history was repeating itself" before they left the UK, Susanna asked: "It's quite remarkable, isn't it!"
Piers quickly kicked off, as he slammed Harry for branding the media coverage of him and his wife as "toxic".

He said: "They only want positive media coverage," as he compared them to Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-Un.
Piers ranted: "I get it, I get it. They only want positive media coverage… what's that? Vladimir Putin? Kim Jong-Un? They only want positive media coverage, don't they?"
Susanna chipped in: "It is not unreasonable."
Piers hit back: "I can disagree with people without being branded, in your eyes, toxic. It's toxic if you want to frame them as victims. They are allowed to say the British press is mean and ghastly and racist. Me, who has spent my life in the British press, saw very different coverage."
Talking about Prince Harry's interview with James Corden, he said: "Does it get any more embarrassing than this – being on an open top bus while banging on about press coverage?"
"They're dishing out left, right and centre," Piers said of the couple speaking about their experience in the royal family. The whole thing is utterly ridiculous."
GMB continues tomorrow at 6am on ITV.
