    This Morning fans have said that some iconic guests that appeared on the show looked completely different.

    Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary were at the helm of the ITV1 magazine programme on Friday morning (February 3).

    Welcoming viewers to the show, Friday's instalment began in a very different way to how it usually does.

    Beginning with some familiar music, the Wombles of Wimbledon theme song played as Alison and Dermot appeared.

    Entering the studio separately, both Alison and Dermot were linking arms with a Womble each as they danced around.

    But fans all said the same thing as they tuned into the much-loved daytime show.

    Taking to Twitter one fan wrote: "Certainly didn’t look like the fluffy scruffy Wombles I remember? All too neat and clean looking"

    "Who are these new fangled Wombles? There’s only one Uncle Bulgaria," penned another.

    A third then said: "They don't even look like the Wombles."

    After Alison and Dermot danced up a storm with their new furry friends, they revealed that the Wombles had arrived in the studio for a very special reason.

    Marking a huge milestone, the duo revealed that the iconic characters from the 70s were celebrating 50 years since the first TV episode.

    The popular kids' programme was about a group of fluffy subterranean eco warriors who go on litter-picking adventures across Wimbledon Common.

    With the motto "make good use of bad rubbish", the first five minute episode aired on February 5, 1973.

    This means that Sunday, February 6 marks exactly 50 years since the beloved programme first aired.

    Fans of the programme can rejoice because to mark the occasion, the original 60 episodes are being digitally remastered into HD and released onto the Wombles YouTube channel from Sunday.
