ITV left viewers raging after the broadcaster mistook Motsi Mabuse for sister Oti during a teaser for today's episode of This Morning.

Presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby announced that Strictly Come Dancing star Motsi would be joining them on the sofa tomorrow, but a picture of Oti was displayed on the screen instead of Motsi.

And eagle-eyed fans were quick to pick up on the blunder, with several furious at how ITV could make that mistake.
