This Morning fans baffled as Phil and Holly appear to ‘hold hands’ on show

This Morning viewers were perplexed when they turned on their TVs on Thursday, only to see Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby apparently holding hands.

Welcoming viewers to the show, the pair were seated next to one another at the counter, with their hands rested on the table before them.

Through a trick of camera angles, it appeared they were holding hands, as their fingers blended into one another.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, in order to maintain social distancing, ITV have decided to doctor camera angles to make it appear as though the presenters are sitting side-by-side.

In reality, the duo were seated a metre apart – but the clever angles could make it appear as though they were touching.

Confused by the optical illusion, certain This Morning viewers took to Twitter to wonder whether the pair were holding hands – or were their eyes playing tricks on them.

One said: "Aww Holly and Phillip holding hands!"

"Holding hands?" wrote a second.

And a third penned: "This is cute because of the screen, looks like they're holding hands."

"@hollywills & @Schofe holding hands on #thismorning with the magic of tv," a fourth remarked
