    ITV viewers reacted in their droves after Holly Willoughby made her acting debut on Sunday evening (August 27).

    The This Morning presenter made a cameo appearance on drama Midsomer Murders, starring as herself, and dubbed by one of the episode's characters as "the Queen of Daytime".

    Filmed two years ago, the 42-year old was cast in series 22's The Witches of Angel's Rise – an instalment surrounding the discovery of a dead body alongside a tarot card on the eve of a psychic fayre.

    Fans of the show appeared to be frustrated with the mother-of-three's appearance, meanwhile, taking aim at the television network.

    One commented on X, formerly Twitter: "'Is that the Queen of Daytime?' Ah yes, top quality realistic not-at-all-forced dialogue there ITV. #MidsomerMurders."

    Another wrote: "#MidsomerMurders spoilt with a cameo plug for ThisMorning. @itv just don't get it and shame on the MM producers for being useful idiots. Flogging a dead horse on the back of premium TV content."

    A third asked: "How much did Holly Willoughby get paid for appearing for 2 seconds? #MidsomerMurders?!?!"

    And a fourth joked: "Wonder how much Holly Willoughby's husband paid #midsomermurders to get her a line!"
