Christine Bleakley and Holly Willoughby
Some 'This Morning' fans took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction with Christine, slamming her "wooden" presenting style, with one user even branding her as "vile".

However, it wasn't all bad news for Christine as some viewers praised her chemistry with host Holly Willoughby, while others were happy to see two women at the helm of 'This Morning'.

This isn't the first time Christine has provoked a negative reaction on social media - she co-hosted the show with Phillip Schofield last year and once again received a frosty reception on Twitter.
She had previously said she was feeling "nervous" about hosting the show, but admitted she was pleased to have Holly by her side.
Christine recently took to the ice for the final episode of 'Dancing On Ice', which was won by 'X Factor' runner-up Ray Quinn.
She and Holly will be hosting 'This Morning' once again on 18 March.
