THIS Morning axed its Spin To Win household bills prize after huge backlash branding the show “tone deaf”.
Outraged fans took to social media to slam the concept and the next day Spin To Win players were playing for either a cash prize or all of their household bills paid until the end of the year.
But that didn’t go down well with viewers either and again the show was subjected to huge backlash.
On Wednesday’s episode of the ITV show it was revealed Spin To Win was back to normal – offering callers between £800 and £2000.
One viewer tweeted: “Oh they have taken the energy bills off nowt to do with them getting a load of flack for it.”
قال آخر: “They’ve removed the patronising stuff off the wheel!!”
And a third added: “Household bills conveniently removed today…”
The reversal came after This Morning was hit by hundreds of complaints from viewers upset by the offer to have their bills paid as a game prize.
