GOOD Morning Britain viewers couldn't believe their ears today when the show started playing Christmas music – three months before December 25.
After a difficult six months that's sparked calls for 2020 to be cancelled, the festive tune appeared to be one step too far for GMB fans.
Host Ben Shepherd asked: "If is too early for this?" before playing Noddy Holder's classic Merry Xmas Everybody.
"It's never too early," Ben added, as he told viewers 74-year-old Noddy – known as "the voice of Christmas" would be appearing on Good Morning Britain today.
One viewer wrote on Twitter: "@benshephard & @kategarraway on GoodMorningBritain were just talking about Christmas cos its exactly 3 months away! I want to shoot myself in the face!"
Another scolded: "Don't remind us, too early for Xmas!"
"As if we're not depressed enough," moaned someone else.
