In a bid to raise the spirits of her UK fans, country singer Shania Twain sent a video recording into This Morning of her singing Man! I Feel Like a Woman – joined by her horse and her dog.
While 54-year-old’s horse seemed to particularly enjoy Twain’s musical interlude, viewers at home had more of a mixed response.
Some viewers were thrilled to have a bit of Shania to brighten up their Monday morning:

All interviews are now being done on video links – with varying degrees of success.
