Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have been removed from This Morning's Twitter banner.
The picture previously included Phillip and Holly as well as Friday hosts Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond.
However, it has been replaced with a generic picture of the show's logo and doesn't include any existing presenters.

It comes after Phillip, 61, sensationally quit ITV completely last week after he admitted to an "unwise but not illegal" affair with a younger male staff member while married to his wife.
In the days that followed, a number of people spoke out against ITV and Phil's behaviour, with words such as "toxic" and "bully" used.
Phillip released another statement on Monday (May 29), defending the show he worked on for more than 20 years.
He said on Instagram: "Now I no longer work on This Morning I am free to say this.
"I hope you have noticed that it's the same handful of people with a grudge against me or the show who seem to have the loudest voice.
"This Morning is the best show to work on, with the best people.
"In all the years I worked there there was no toxicity.
"You can listen to those persistently loud voices if you like.
"But the thousands of guests over the years, thousands of staff and crew, hundreds of presenters and contributors all know, it is a family of wonderful, talented, kind, hard working people."
One person who spoke out over the weekend was Dr Ranj Singh, who first worked on the show in 2016 until he left last year.
The TV doctor said that during his time, he "grew increasingly worried about how things were behind-the-scenes and how people, including [himself] were being treated".
Dr Ranj claimed he shared his concerns but then found he was "being used less and less".

He added: "This Morning had become toxic… I felt like because I whistle-blew I was managed out.
"I was assured that certain things were going to be addressed and changes made. I haven't worked on the show since."
ITV have confirmed that Dr Ranj did make a complaint about bullying before he left the show.
A spokesperson said: "Following a complaint made by Dr Ranj, we appointed someone to carry out an external review and the review found no evidence to support the complaint of bullying."
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV1 and ITVX
