This Morning viewers switch off during Grease the Musical performance

This Morning: Grease Musical cast get interviewed on show

This Morning viewers were treated to a mega-mix style performance from the cast of Grease the Musical but were left switching off after the “shrieking”.

Introducing them to the show, Dermot excitedly said: “Welcome back, we have ventured outside.”

Alison added: “For years it has been the one that we have wanted back, in the West End hasn’t it?

“I will tell you more, now your Summer Nights could include a trip to see the brand new stage show production of Grease in London.

Dermot continued: “And we have got a treat for you, without further ado, performing a mega-mix of songs from the show, it’s the cast of Grease.”

However, as the cast danced around the outside of the ITV studios, viewers were left uneasy and disappointed in the performance.

Taking to Twitter, user @LauLau1984 asked: “Grease was set in a high school…. Why are the cast so old!? #thismorning.”

Taylor Crane fumed: “Had to switch off the shrieking on the TV… Musicals need to stay theatre and not live tv…”

@Itt39354118 commented: “Sandy was blonde… #thismorning.”
