It led to Holly delivering the line ‘it sounds like home’ when doing the no place like home part, which is the pre recorded end sequence was actually ‘there’s no place like This Morning’.

A wonderful production and the scale of these Halloween shows seems to increase every year. Holly Compared it to Saturday morning TV and Phil to a panto; maybe they should do some sort of panto show in a similar vein on the last show before Christmas.

The graphics, costume and especially the set added to it all.
I agree on the TVC front, similarly you last year where they have a merry go round in the studio, the ability to add big set pieces and change the background does help, even if for most of the time the real view is missed. For the first time in a while I sat and read the end credits, possibly because they were different. Bravo to all involved.

I did think actually they might take advantage of the screens to change the backdrop to the Albert Dock when Richard and Judy hosted, but guess that would have been even more effort than what they did here. Did used to annoy me they'd put such effort into the titles etc. for shows like this but didn't bother doing anything for Ruth and Eamonn on Fridays, but now that is sorted it's not so much an issue.

P.S. It's not the be all and end all and not a reflection of the comments I've seen on social media but was very disappointed to see Gogglebox review Richard and Judy guest hosting and basically just slag them off.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

I thought the Gogglebox reviews on Richard and Judy were harsh. Totally disagree with them. However it's all about expectations.

If you're expecting them to be present in the style of Holly and Phil then you're definitely going to be disappointed.

I think the Goggleboxers failed to appreciate the nostalgia of it and that Richard and Judy were the very foundation of the show in the first place.

That says a lot though. Today’s viewers are today’s viewers

Whereas here we hark back to nostalgia, and Holly & Phil are unpopular because they don’t do the show like it was done in 1990

I don't think that's true - we (and the rest of the population, we're not that special) can distinguish between the two and most appreciated their appearance for what it was. Gogglebox came across as if it was edited by someone Judy had crossed 20 years ago.

I'll repeat myself. You cannot compare Richard and Judy to Holly and Phil. Totally different styles.

Some of the comments on Gogglebox were really bizarre regarding their appearance. Comments about Judy's teeth was one of them.

Christmas titles and studio launches today.

Philip and Holly immediately commented on how old the Christmas titles were judging by the length of Holly’s hair.

They’re also based on the old South Bank titles rather than the current ones so it’s surprising that they hadn’t updated them.
