This Morning fans gobsmacked by Judy’s ‘new voice’ as she returns with Richard

This Morning favourites Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan returned to the ITV daytime show on Thursday.

The husband and wife duo appeared on the show to discuss the launch of their new literary podcast, which celebrates 10 years of the legendary Richard and Judy Book Club.

While fans were delighted to see the legendary presenters back on their screens, some were distracted as they noticed something different about Judy.

Viewers at home were wowed by Judy's new look and some noticed that she seemed to sound different.

Taking to Twitter, one fa penned: "Judy sounds different."

Another added: "What’s going on with Judy accent/voice? She sounds like she’s gone extra posh."

While a third asked: "Judy's teeth have given her a lisp."

Richard and Judy became television legends after hosting This Morning from 1988 until 2001, before moving to Channel 4 for their show Richard & Judy, which ran for seven years.

The pair joined Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, who are currently filling in for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby while they are taking a break for the October half-term holidays.

Chatting with Ruth and Eamonn, Richard, 64, revealed his wife had an unusual habit when it came to sticking her nose in a good page-turner.

In a loving confession, he admitted Judy, 72, had a tendency to read certain parts of the book out loud, which caused concern for him in the past.

Jokingly, Richard claimed he feared Judy had someone in the bedroom with her when he heard different voices coming from the boudoir.

Revealing all, he added: "When she thinks she’s alone, she reads aloud."

Adding that Judy tends to read in their bedroom, he remarked: "So quite often I hear this voice coming out of the bedroom – cause you spend a lot of time reading in bed – and I think she’s got someone in there with her."

Host Ruth, 60, seemed a little surprised by the revelation, as she asked: "Really, do you do that every time you read a book? I’ve never heard that before."

Judy defended her predilection to reading out loud, insisting it made dialogue scenes in a novel far more enjoyable as a reader.

Richard and Judy were last seen on the show together back in July as they made a one-off return during the summer holidays to fill in for Holly and Phil.

The couple's new podcast series will see them interview huge literary names such as Heather Morris, who wrote the bestseller The Tattooist of Auschwitz, and Terry Hayes, who is the name behind hit book I Am Pilgrim.

Launching today, Richard and Judy will release a brand new episode every Thursday for book lovers across the globe.

This Morning airs on weekdays at 10am on ITV
