This Morning hosts Vernon Kay and Rochelle Humes discussed the cost of living crisis during the show today (3 Aug).
Viewers, however, weren’t happy – many even found it offensive that they were even talking about it.
What happened this morning today?
On today’s This Morning, Vernon and Rochelle hosted again.
At the start of the show, the duo welcomed Simon McCoy and Sonia Sodha to the program.
Together, the four discussed the biggest news of the day — including the cost of living crisis.

During their discussion, they talked about how “energy shaming” might or might not help people lower their household bills.
One viewer commented: “What if you have a seriously ill child or an elderly relative that you constantly need machines for? Or do you run a business from home?
“Of course you will use more energybut you shouldn’t feel ashamed or pressured about it.”
“How crazy is the idea of ’energy shameful’. We have neighbors who have two or three people in their house, we have six. So how can you compare?” said another.
Spectators beat Rochelle and Vernon
The presenters also talked about the struggles people have taken to keep the cost of living crisis under control.
However, viewers weren’t happy – and claimed to know the contents of the hosts’ bank balances!
Viewers didn’t seem to appreciate that Rochelle and Vernon discussed the cost of living crisis on tonight’s show, largely because they are “millionaires.”
Many argued that the presenting duo were unable to sympathize with what people are going through and were offended that they even tried.
“I don’t want to hear Rochelle talk about struggling people and the cost of living crisis when she’s just flaunting her wealth and offbeat lifestyle on the gram,” one viewer tweeted.
“It’s really hard for me to relate to people like Rochelle Humes and Vernon Kay when they talk about the financial crisis and the fight with fuel prices and so on. These people are multi-millionaires… They don’t have to fight!” another claimed.
“Two posh, wealthy guests pretending to know about people struggling with utility bills [eye roll emoji]’ tweeted a third.
“Millionaires arguing poverty with gas prices makes me so angry,” ranted another.
Presentation of Shake-up this summer
On this week’s This Morning, another restructuring of the presentation took place.
Last week, Craig Doyle hosted the show along with Josie Gibson and Mollie King. This week, however, it’s Rochelle and Vernon’s turn to helm the show.
Viewers were divided when they saw who would be hosting the show on Monday morning (August 1).

Some were excited. “Nice to tune in and see Rochelle and Vernon on my screen,” one viewer tweeted.
“Fabulous to see Vernon and Rochelle, two stunning presenters!” said another.
However, some were less fortunate.
“Vernon isn’t very good at presenting. Rochelle constantly has to step in to save him. Get Craig [Doyle] the absolute pro back asap,” tweeted one viewer.
“Seeing Rochelle makes you long for Josie,” wrote another.
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV and the ITV Hub.
