Sharon Marshall from This Morning issued an apology to fans on Wednesday after the soap guru mistakenly announced Coronation Street’s exit to air.
During the show, the entertainment journalist, 51, joined hosts Holly Willoughby and Joel Dummett to discuss what viewers can expect from their favorite series.

Phillip, 60, usually presents the TV show alongside Holly Willoughby, 42, Monday through Thursday, but so far this week he has been replaced by Alison Hammond, 48.
Masked presenter Joel, 37, replaced Phillip on Wednesdays and Thursdays this week, with Phil due to return on Monday, April 3.
It comes after Phil’s brother, Timothy Schofield, 54, went on trial this week for sexually assaulting a schoolboy who allegedly made a confession to his famous brother.
Timothy allegedly had an “obsessive sexual interest” in a teenager and drove to Moghaddam’s house this morning to confiding in him.
His trial heard that when he told his televsion brother that he and the boy had performed a sexual act together, Philip replied: “What did you say?” After the defendant described the “time” he and his alleged victim had spent together, the celebrity replied: “What the hell is that?”

Change: This Morning bosses have appointed Joel as Philip Scofield’s replacement on This Morning as the presenter takes a break from the show
The TV presenter told his brother it “shouldn’t happen again” and later gave a police statement that forms part of the case against his younger brother, the court said.
Timothy Scofield faces 11 counts of sexual offenses against the boy over a three-year period from October 2016. He denies all of them.
He is accused of causing him to witness and engage in sexual acts. He also allegedly performed sexual acts in front of the accused.
Opening the case, District Attorney Robin Shellard said, “This is a case of Timothy Scofield’s obsessive sexual interest in (his alleged victim) and the subsequent sexual abuse of that teenage boy.”
