This Morning host Alison Hammond did not star on her usual daytime programme spot and was missing from the presenting lineup.
On Friday's programme, fans noticed that Alison was missing and wasn't sitting in her regular spot next to her co-host Dermot O'Leary.
Instead, her pal Josie Gibson replaced her and presented the programme.
When the show opened, the ex-Big Brother star said: "I'm here!"
Dermot then replied and said: "I know you are, Alison is having a day off.
"What have you done with her, Josie?"
Josie then explained: "Alison did say I could cover her today, but only if I get her a really nice birthday present."
This comes after Alison took to social media to pay tribute to her beloved mum on the two year anniversary of her death on Thursday.
The presenter shared a photo of her mum on her Twitter account and captioned it: "Two years ago today" followed by a heartbroken emoji.
Friends and fans flocked to the Twitter thread to support the much-loved personality.
One fan said: "Alison you are such a force for good in the world, your mother would be so proud of you. Thank you for all the laughter and thank you to your mother for having you, she was obviously a very good one."
A second added: "She will be looking down and feel so proud of you Alison! You are an amazing woman, despite your pain you are always positive, make everyone laugh and you should be proud of yourself! Stay strong and keep mum proud".
Other This Morning viewers took to social media to praise up her replacement, with one fan saying: "Is it just me or does anyone else think @thismorning is more fun and interesting…
"when @Josiestweet @AlisonHammond and @radioleary
are presenting? Naturally entertaining. Naturally funny."
Another typed: "Josie Gibson needs to be a full time presenter #Thismorning"
