ITV soap fans were pretty confused by new theme tunes as each one had a piano makeover.
Throughout the day, some of the viewers’ favourite ITV shows had a quick change up, with shows such as Emmerdale, Coronation Street, This Morning, Loose Women and The Chase all swapping their pizzazzy themes for toned down versions.
And fans have taken to social media to share their confusion about why this could be happening, and why the theme tunes are lilting and jazzy.
One said: "That piano # Corrie theme VERY SEXY sound to it indeed"
Another said: "Erm what’s with the new theme tune? # Emmerdale"
A third added: "The piano theme for @ itvcorrie is so soothing, tune in 9.15pm tomorrow night to find out why ITV have made some shows have a piano theme # corrie"
Another tweet read: "I LOVE the piano version of the @ emmerdale theme, brilliant # JohnLewis #emmerdale"
Throughout the day, other themes had the same thing, with even the music between scenes using the sexy piano tunes.
Christmas Adverts 2018
One fan reckons they have explained the reason why, saying: "All this piano music is 100% to do with Elton John being on the John Lewis Christmas Advert @thismorning #thismorning #johnlewischristmasadvert #EltonJohn #Itv #johnlewis"
"The ITV tunes are very Elton John-esque #ThisMorning #ITV I think I know what this is all about," another wrote.
Another said: "A lot of the itv shows have changed their theme tune today. Rumour has it that it’s something to do with Elton John and the John Lewis advert."
A couple of people thought the John Lewis advert was the reason, and ITV itself was not giving anything away.
An official tweet from the ITV’s media account said: "The title music of some of our shows has been given a piano twist today – all will be revealed tomorrow."
So far, the John Lewis advert has not been seen on the show, but they revealed Thursday would be their premiere date, so this may be the reason behind the new theme tunes.
Or at least that’s what some fans think.
Of course, many are not too keen on the new tinkling of the ivories, saying they hope ITV turns it back.
One wrote: "Totally backfired @itv You don’t touch #coronationstreet #corrie theme tune. You just don’t! #leavecorriealone Silly beggars! This has ruined my life….of course, it hasn’t at all but even so"
Another said: "Not liking the new version of #TheChase theme tune. Please go back to the old one. @ITV"
A third added: "There are some things in life you don’t mess with. #thechase theme tune is one. Sort it out #itv"
Another said: "What’s going on with Emmerdale’s theme tune? Stop messing with my ‘daa, daa, daaaaaa’ x"
Some believe that all will be revealed at 9.15pm on Thursday, so we’ll have to wait and see whether the questions are answered.
