This Morning could be in for a huge shake-up if Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield get their way.

The presenting duo want to do a Loose Women and bring the viewers into the show by having a live audience in the studio every day, instead of just interacting with the camera crew and producers.

"This Morning doesn't have an audience, but it would be nice to have an audience – a lot of the other shows have an audience," Holly told OK! Online at the This Morning Live event. "That brings another element of it really."

And her co-presenter is firmly on board with the idea, after experiencing doing This Morning in front of a live audience for the first time.

"It takes a few seconds on social media to get a response or reaction, but it's so lovely to do an item and look out and see people reacting to it or people shaking their heads," Phillip enthused.

Fortunately, he added that the possibility of presenting the show in front of a live audience doesn't make him nervous at all.

"The thing about me, if you put me in a room with people that I don't know on my own at a party – I will die inside. If I walk in and think, 'Oh no, I don't know anyone!', that's my worse thing," Phillip noted.

"Walking out today, getting into the crowd – talking to everybody I love, that's fine. I have no problem at all."

Next week's This Morning will have a different look to it as well with Phillip off to Los Angeles, leaving Rylan Clark-Neal to step in to take his place, and Holly is pretty excited about her new presenting partner.

This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
