LORRAINE Kelly has been slammed by fans for leaving her post on her ITV show as she wasreplaced by another ITV star.
Fuming viewers tuned in on Monday morning but the TV legend, 63, had vanished from their screens.
Viewers were shocked to see mum-of-two Christine Lampard taking over during the half term break, even though she has young kids.
Chrsitine is mum to children, Patricia, five, and Freddie, two, who she shares with husband Frank Lampard.
One viewer said: "'Why is Lorraine off for half-term, she doesn't have school age kids."
Another said: "'Half-term which means the woman with a 28-year-old takes the week off and the woman with two young children does her show!"

One more moaned: "Ah yes. Lorraine has half term off despite her daughter not having been at school for about 20 years, only to be replaced by someone with school age kids. The usual makes-no-sense move."
Lorraine is understood to be taking two weeks off for half term and will return to the show on Monday, November 6.
Christine, 44, recently told The Sun: “I’ve had a lovely summer, but my little girl just started school.
“I’m not wildly excited about it, though we’re trying to make her excited.

“She’s been at nursery two mornings a week, but she would have rather stayed at home than go.
“Obviously, everyone has to go to school, but I just keep thinking: ‘Oh, no, I really miss her.’
“She’s still just a wee baby in my head, and then suddenly you’re packing them off and I’m that mum crying at the school gates!”
Despite Christine appearing to be a vision of confidence, she admits that she actually suffers badly from anxiety.
She points to growing up in Northern Ireland during the Troubles as the cause, especially as her dad, Frederick, was the drummer in a band at a time when the IRA was regularly targeting pubs.
Last week, Lorraine stood aside and allowed Louise Minchin to take over for the day on Friday.
It was her first time leading the show – after she quit BBC Breakfast earlier this year.
