HOLLY Willoughby announced a major This Morning shake-up today that will leave viewers gutted.
Holly appeared on the lunchtime show today with Joel Dommett while Phillip Schofield took the week off.
Holly, 42, and Joel, 37, had just completed a game of the show's popular competition segment Spin to Win.
The live segment sees viewers winning cash prizes, as Holly spins the wheel for them or picks a ball.
But they must answer the phone with the show's catchphrase in order to play.
Viewers are able to win from £750 to £3,000 on the wheel.

Today, Holly announced the segment would not air "for a few weeks."
She said: "We have some sad news, Spin To Win will not air for the next few weeks."
Viewers were shocked by the announcement, and one said: "I honestly wonder if Holly & Phil have some weird copyright ownership over Spin To Win – have you noticed they don't let anyone else play it when they're both away, or on Fridays #ThisMorning."
Phillip and mum-of-three Holly take their annual leave during the school holidays off, but Spin To Win is also put on ice to ensure that kids are not exposed to gambling when watching the show.
