THIS Morning fans all said the same thing after Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield finally returned to our screens today.
Over the past week Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary, who usually present the ITV breakfast show on Fridays, stepped in for the pair so that they could enjoy their Christmas break.
Holly and Phillip usually host This Morning Monday to Thursday and are given a break during school half-terms and the summer holidays.
Viewers assumed that they would have been back last week, but were left shocked when Alison and Dermot stepped in to host.
So when they appeared in the studios earlier today, fans took to Twitter to make some sarcastic comments.
One tweeted: "Nice of Holly & Phil to turn up !!"
A second said: "Finally decided to turn up work then have they."
A third tweeted: "Holly and Phil return from their extended Christmas Holiday," along with an eyeball emoji.

Meanwhile others were over the moon that the iconic duo are back doing what they do best.
Another tweeted: "Soooo happy to have Phil and Holly back."
"Oh how I've missed you two! Welcome back Phil & Holly," a fifth chimed in.
It comes after viewers were convinced Holly and Phil secretly QUIT the show after they were missing from Tuesday morning's show last week.
The presenters were last seen on December 10 and many expected them to be back after the festive break, but they were replaced by Alison and Dermot.
Taking to Twitter to question their whereabouts, those watching at home asked if they had left the show.
One person wrote: “Is it Friday or have Phil and Holly left the show without telling us?”
A second added: “Did Phil & Holly leave & forget to say goodbye? They’ve been off for ages #ThisMorning @thismorning.”
While a third wrote: “Have Phil and Holly retired? Man shrugging #Thismorning.”
Others couldn’t resist pointing out how much time off they get, with one person ranting: “Holly and Phil are still not back from their Xmas break. Must be nice to earn £350k and barely show up.”
“Bloody hell Holly and Phil work less than me and I'm long-term unemployed #thismorning,” added another.
The Sun also recently revealed that Holly has been given two and a half weeks off presenting This Morning to film a big new show on rival BBC.
Her bosses are so desperate to keep her, they are allowing her to co-host Wim Hof’s Superstar Survival with comic Lee Mack, 53.
The telly favourite will fly to Southern Europe on January 17, a day after launching ITV’s Sunday night prime-time talent series Dancing on Ice.
She will fly back to the UK at weekends for the ice dance show.
