This Morning

Sofa abandoned after a light comes unsafe in the rafters

RDJ Recently warned Central (West) Midlands Today
This Morning have launched their Christmas makeover of the set today.

Though it’s gone a bit awry as they’ve had to vacate the sofa on their first interview due to safety viewers after a light is precariously wobbling in the rafters.
Was right above guest Matthew Wright’s head so they had to be told to move to another part of the set.

EDIT: Was explained that a wire got caught up around a light which was what was shaking it. They’ve managed to untangle it and it’s now been made safe.

Watched it live. It wasn't very exciting.

None of the exploding light bulb excitment that Jan Leeming had live on air then?

Complete with an out of context screenshot of Phillip opening his mouth to speak but for that split second looking angry, accompanied by a line from a different part of the show that on its own implies that he’s leaving - something like “I’M LEAVING!” when the full sentence is something like “I’m leaving out a mince pie for Santa on Christmas Eve”.

Only saw the break sting but Christmas graphics look nice, and possibly new.
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

Seems the tabloids love TV mishaps and breakdowns nowadays, clickbait galore.

Unrelated problem to the original posts in this thread, though.

Yes, but it happened less than an hour later on the same programme and seems to have captured the papers' attention more than the wobbly ceiling lights.
James Martin has been trending on Twitter
throughout the day because of this minor incident with the food mixer. The papers again trying to making it into something exciting to gain views.
