This Morning fans switch off as they fume at ‘rubbish’ solstice crystal segment

This Morning viewers were left disappointed after presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield spoke to a crystal expert about the Summer Solstice.

They welcomed her onto the ITV show and asked her about the potential energy properties of crystals during the Summer Solstice.

She had a wide selection of crystals placed along the table in front of her and the trio inspected and played with them as she spoke about their benefits.

The expert urged people to "charge" their crystals and told viewers about the properties they obtain by doing so, including help with concentration, happiness and luck.

However, many fans of the daytime show thought the segment was "rubbish" and took to Twitter to complain about the scheduled programming.

One disgruntled viewer tweeted: "Supercharge your crystals? Oh, for f*** sake, what a load of rubbish."

Another wrote: "Energy from crystals? What a loads of b*******."

One fan declared: "More crystals? I’m switching off."

A clearly upset fan added: "Why are they allowed to push this daft crystal stuff? It's not real. It doesn't do anything. They are just pretty crystals and putting them in the moon [light] and calling [on] them isn't going to do anything."

However, Holly and Phil seemed interested in the expert's advice and played with the crystals together.

Holly held one smooth dark circular crystal in her hand and played with it like a stress ball, while Phil jokingly kissed a green crystal that the expert said would help get rid of frogs and find a prince.

The Summer Solstice theme ran through the entire programme and the daily competition segment repeatedly aired.

It featured Made In Chelsea's Georgia Toffolo as she frolicked around in Sweden to help prepare for the Midsummer festivals.

She wore a long white frock and drank peach schnapps with her "new friends" as she read out the terms and conditions for the competition.

However, some viewers called out the ITV show for their elaborate display and one said that it was "entirely unnecessary" to fly out the presenters to the competition prize locations.

They urged the show to consider using "stock photographs" of the destinations and used the hashtags "climate crisis" and "carbon footprint".
