This Morning had a slightly embarrassing blunder, as it mixed up two Coronation Street stars.
Sharon Marshall was chatting to presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield during today’s episode (June 12) about what’s coming up in the ITV soap, touching on Eileen Grimshaw (Sue Cleaver) and Nicola Rubinstein (Nicola Thorp) leaving for Bristol in the aftermath of Pat Phelan’s dramatic exit.
“The character of Nicola will go, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see her back, because she’s got so many ties to Gary and that little baby,” Sharon said.
But the image displayed on the screen behind them showed Julia Goulding, who plays Shona Ramsey, instead of Nicola Thorp.
It didn’t go unnoticed by the stars, either.
“Wait, is Shona going to Bristol too?” joked Thorp on social media. “Imagine the dinner parties.”
Goulding replied: “I don’t know, maybe @thismorning will be able to clear it up for us… Do they know something we don’t?”
Not long after, Sharon Marshall acknowledged and apologised for the error.
And it’s not the first time Thorp and Goulding have been mistaken for each other, as Goulding pointed out with this tweet:
This Morning airs weekdays from 10.30am on ITV.
