This Morning viewers say they were reminded why they love it so much following the start of today's programme.

Phillip Schofield made quite the impression yesterday after finding out peas don't count as one of your five a day according to a Harvard study.

He spoke about the joys of a pea sandwich which not everyone agreed was such a joyful food.

It left viewers and guests on the show alike conflicted as to whether it was disgusting or delicious.

Phillip stayed strong with his support of peas and opened up This Morning in a way that reminded fans why they love the show.

Phillip and Holly Willoughby opened up today's show holding signs saying 'give peas a chance' and 'breach of the peas'.

Phillip said: "On yesterday's show we revealed the 'unpeasing' news that a firm favourite in the vegetable community - peas - no longer counted as one of your five-a-day."

Holly said: "Well, it's outrageous, with peas feeling like they no longer had a place on the dinner table we've begun our mission to give peas a chance!"

Phillip said: "In front of us, we've got a platter of pea related foods.

"Including my favourite, the pea sandwich!"

Phillip's Schofield favourite sandwich that left viewers divided, the pea sandwich.

The presenters also introduced singer Gaz Keenan from a Beatles tribute band to sing satirical 'Give Peas a Chance'.

The show has continued with guests being interviewed on the matter of if peas qualify as a nutritious vegetable with pea related decorations.

Phillip announced that 9,000 peas are eaten per person a year in the UK.
