This Morning viewers have been left divided over the programme’s Spin To Win game, as one of its new prizes is covering the cost of energy bills.
Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield returned from their summer holidays and brought back the popular segment of the show.
However, people have blasted its ‘dystopian’ style makeover, as it now includes four months of energy bills being paid for.
Remarking on the game, BBC journalist Scott Bryan posted on Twitter: “This Morning has turned completely dystopian and Black Mirror by offering to pay energy bills as a competition prize.”

“What a sad state of affairs that energy bills are now a competition prize,” commented one user.
Another tweeted: “Yeah, This Morning having an energy bills [as a] competition is just dark as f*** mate. We are now in real life Black Mirror.”
“This Morning there, turning the British public’s growing panic and desperation over their energy bills into a lighthearted game for daytime telly, a fourth commented.
However, the caller who won the prize was chuffed, as he admitted to the hosts that he was worried he would not be able to afford his bills.

This comes after energy prices are set to soar to as much as £6000 as of next year.
It has already been confirmed that there will be another rise in October, with the cap rising to £3,579, and then a further hike in January to £4,799.
Experts believe that up to 45 million people will fall into fuel poverty, a term used for when people can’t afford their energy bills, this winter.
