Good Morning Britain failed to make it on air this morning (25 March) after a fire broke out at ITV Studios.

The ITV Studios on London’s South Bank were evacuated just before the programme’s 7.00am transmission slot, after a fire broke out in the post room. The presenters took to Twitter to keep viewers updated on what was happening while a pre-recorded programme played out instead.

Good Morning Britain presenter Ben Shephard said that five fire engines were at the scene to deal with the incident. A few hours later the show tweeted to say that the incident was now over and that all staff were safely back inside.

Lorraine played out as usual at 8.30am as Friday’s edition is recorded on Thursday. Good Morning Britain will return on Easter Monday at 7.00am on ITV.
