ITV daytime viewers will be disappointed later this week as This Morning and Loose Women are cancelled for the rugby on Thursday.
Instead of Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield and the Loose Women panel, viewers will find England’s Rugby World Cup match against USA.
In a huge daytime schedule shake up, instead of This Morning at 10.30am, The Tipping Point will be on early at 10.25am.
Coverage of the Rugby World Cup in Japan starts on OTV at 11am, with kickoff of the Pool C clash between England and USA starting at 11.45am.
ITV returns to normal scheduling at 2pm for the news, with another episode of Ben Shephard’s The Tipping Point popping up at 4pm.
The Chase will be on as normal at 5pm.

Last week, daytime telly viewers were outraged when they tuned in to find sport in place of their favourite shows.
They took to Twitter to vent after Wales’s first game was screened instead of This Morning, saying: “Sorry but who cares about the Rugby? It’s 10:30am I need my Holly and Phil fix”
Another moaned: “You could’ve put Rugby on another channel nobody watches. 6 weeks of Rugby interrupting the schedule is not acceptable.”
Another questioned: “Why? We don’t want to see this nonsense.”
On Sunday, England won their first match of the competition with a massive 35 points to Tonga’s 3.
The Rugby World Cup takes place in Japan over the next six weeks – so there’s a lot more disruption to come.
