Corbynistas took to Twitter to condemn the hosts for taking a selfie with Mr Johnson on the programme during his interview today, while others drew comparisons with interrogations experienced by rivals at the hands of Andrew Neil, Andrew Marr and Robert Peston to name a few. One said: “Schofield: WILL YOU APOLOGISE, WILL YOU APOLOGISE, WILL YOU APOLOGISE, JEREMY?!!! “Schofield: Let’s take a selfie, Boris.”
Another said: “@Schofe absolutely bottled it on #ThisMorning, and the BBC (@RobBurl) are bottling it with the Johnson interview.”
A third said: “Yeah, that ‘can we get a selfie’ question was BRUTAL.”
Another added: “I honestly despair. Why is he allowed to get away with it?”
Another said: “I don’t think I’ve ever seen Holly Willoughby look happier, she’s even got her arm round him.”

Contrary to the remarks on Twitter, Mr Johnson was quizzed on Labour’s claim Mr Johnson is plotting to sell off the NHS in a trade deal after Brexit.
Mr Johnson shut down Phillip and categorically said the claims were “absolute nonsense”.
After explaining his plans to have “50,000 more nurses” working in the NHS, Schofield wanted to expand upon this point and the claim surrounding the health service.

The presenter asked: “Will those nurses still be required if you’ve sold it to the Americas?”
Mr Johnson said: “This is absolute nonsense and I think a scare story which comes up time and time again every election.
“I love the NHS, it is the most fantastic institution.
“Look at what we are doing – as I said it exemplifies the very best of our country.”

The claim came from Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn who handed out what he called “government documents”
The claim came from Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn who handed out what he called “government documents” to the press that he said proved the NHS was part of a post-Brexit trade deal with the US, but failed to answer questions on exactly where they came from.
There have since been claims they have come from Russia meddling in the general election.
By contrast, Mr Johnson’s rivals have each been slaughtered by the BBC’s Andrew Neil, with Mr Corbyn’s interview having been dubbed a “car crash”.
Mr Corbyn failed to apologise to the British Jewish community during an interview with BBC’s Andrew Neil ahead of the December 12 general election.
Mr Corbyn had a grilling from Andrew Neil
The topic was brought up as the Chief Rabbi warned people against voting for the Labour Party and said that “the overwhelming majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety”.
Host Mr Neil said: “Wouldn’t you like to take this opportunity tonight to apologise to the British Jewish community for what’s happened?”
Mr Corbyn said: “What I’ll say is this: I am determined that our society will be safe for people of all faiths.
“I don’t want anyone to be feeling insecure in our society and our government will protect every community.”
Mr Neil interjected: “So no apology?”
As Mr Corbyn continued his comment, Mr Neil said again: “So no apology for how you’ve handled this?”
Last night it was Lib Dem leader Jo Swindon’s turn, though she was quick to offer an apology to Britons for her own voting record.
Ms Swinson said: “Liberal Democrats in Government, including myself.
The ballot is on December 12
“Which I have previously said and I’m happy to say again, was wrong and I’m sorry about that.
“It was one of the things that we did get wrong.”
Mr Neil continued: “You’re proposing to scrap the benefits cap. Who voted several times to introduce the benefits cap?
“That would be you.”
