Popular TV doctor Dr Ranj Singh took the reigns at This Morning for today's show (Friday 21 July) while Ruth and Eamonn got ready for the weekend.

Dr Ranj is very popular amongst mums and has a huge fans base…

So, when he announced he would be hosting today’s This Morning the messages of congratulations soon flooded in.

The TV doctor made the announcement on social media with a glowing selfie and the caption: ‘So I can FINALLY reveal the big news… I’M HOSTING @thismorning TOMORROW!!! ARRRRRRGGH!! 🤗 Absolute dream come true! I can’t quite believe it! ❤😱’.

His Instagram post quickly received over 3,000 likes and hundreds of messages from fans who were delighted with the news.

A third person commented: ‘This is so so exciting! Whoop 💓 you will be absolutely fab 😘😘😘.’

Lots of mums joked that they could now trick their children into watching This Morning as their favourite Cbeebies host would be on the telly. Others tagged their friends who clearly fancied the doctor to give them a heads up!

The doctor was clearly nervous about his first time presenting alongside Vanessa Feltz, and joked he was sweating so much he had pantyliners under his arms!

Since airing viewers have had mixed reactions about the duo. While some people are loving the switch-up others are switching off until Phil and Holly return!

One person said: ‘VANESSA FELTZ JUST SNIFFED DR RANJ AFTER HE SAID HE HAD PANTY LINERS IN HIS ARMPITS. This is going to be iconic.’

Another wrote: ‘Vanessa and Dr Ranj are killing @thismorning loving your work and you’re looking gorgeous! 😊xxxx’.

In contrast one person vented: ‘Why is a doctor presenting #ThisMorning??’

Another exclaimed: ‘Really #ThisMorning no other presenters available.’

A third protested: ‘I’m turning off until Phillip and holly come back.’

Regular hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are now off on their summer holidays and won’t return to the show until the kids go back to school in September.

Mum-of-three Holly is sure to be excited about six weeks off with her little ones and she will likely keep us updated with their whereabouts and activities on Instagram!

Ruth and Eamonn have been hosting this week and will continue throughout the summer. However the couple will have every Friday off, giving the show the opportunity to introduce exciting guest presenters like Dr Ranj. We wonder who will be next?
