Just that really, Holly said hold on breaking news! I actually got a bit worried thinking we had been attacked or something!

Specially as in the last few days we have had bomb threats with those packages found in London etc.

Aibu to have an issue with this? Is it just me?

If you want proper news and not dramatised “entertainment”, I’d say look elsewhere than This Morning and Holly Willoughby.

So yes, YABU!

It’s hilarious Twitter is full of people thinking the Queen had died grin

So what did actually get revealed?

It's on in the background, I perked up when I heard 'breaking news' it is possible for them to interrupt broadcasts if there actually was any you know!

It's almost as if people think ITV would get Holly Willoughby to break serious national news!

Thanks for brightening up my day!

I was momentarily perplexed but soon got over it.

Whose gender was revealed? Phil’s?

I heard it and I rushed into the lounge from the kitchen. My first thought was Brexit had been cancelled. I am an optimist.

But what was the reveal???! Anyone?!!

More annoying is the use of gender to mean sex.....<ducks>

NameChanger22 Thu 07-Mar-19 13:05:33

The reveal was 2 twin boys.

ILoveMaxiBondi Thu 07-Mar-19 13:06:34

Who are the twin boys? Who do they belong to? confused

GreatDuckCookery6211 Thu 07-Mar-19 13:07:43

My first thought was Brexit had been cancelled

I’m glad I didn’t see it as that’s what I would have thought! If only eh.

Who’s having twin boys??

SerenDippitty Thu 07-Mar-19 13:08:10

I’m guessing the Duke and Duchess Of Sussex?

AutumnCrow Thu 07-Mar-19 13:08:22

Why would anyone think the Queen had died during a 'Gender Reveal'?

That's one of the most bizarre non sequiturs I've ever heard.

Whose gender was revealed? Phil’s?

It's beyond me how 'gender reveal' is even a thing these days. Don't people have anything more interesting to think about? (Well, clearly Holly Willoughby doesn't.)

AintNobodyHereButUsReindeer Thu 07-Mar-19 13:12:20

This is the most confusing thread ever confused

PuppyMonkey Thu 07-Mar-19 13:14:43

TanquerayTickles Thu 07-Mar-19 13:14:44

For the love of Mike, who is having twin boys? confused

HedgehogStew Thu 07-Mar-19 13:16:01

Yeah, what TanquerayTickles said??

SlowCooked Thu 07-Mar-19 13:16:07

Not much of a reveal, if we don't know who's having them!
