This Morning viewers call out show for major geographical blunder

‘Somebody needs to get their geography right!’ This Morning viewers call out show for major location blunder during lockdown chat

This Morning fans were not impressed during Friday’s show as they called out a major geographical blunder.

The ITV daytime show saw stand-in hosts Dermot O’Leary and Rochelle Humes join Dr Phillipa Kay to discuss the latest lockdown news which revealed that four million residents the boroughs of Greater Manchester as well of areas of East Lancashire and West Yorkshire are facing new restrictions. 

However, a map that flashed up on screen to show the locations appeared to be incorrect and viewers at home were quick to call out the error.

Whoops! This Morning fans were not impressed during Friday’s show as they called out a major geographical blunder

The visual guide showed a map that highlighted Greater Manchester, Lancashire and West Yorkshire, however, West Yorkshire was incorrectly shown as being south of Manchester. 

Taking to Twitter, fans were quick to make their feelings clear and suggested that This Morning producers need to brush up on their geography skills.

‘#ThisMorning Who does your Geography? You got Yorkshire and Greater Manchester the wrong way round!’ tweeted one viewer.
