Screengrab/Good Morning Britain

You'll be able to watch 'Good Morning Britain' on UTV Ireland from next week

Bad news if you happen to enjoy Loose Women first thing in the morning.

POPULAR MORNING SHOW ‘Good Morning Britain’ appears in schedules for UTV Ireland from next week.

It follows complaints from viewers since the Dublin-based broadcaster’s launch, at the start of this month.

The ITV breakfast show had previously been available on the Northern Ireland-based UTV service.

Presented by Susanna Reid, Ben Shephard, Charlotte Hawkins and Sean Fletcher, the two-and-a-half hour weekday show will air from 6am on Monday, with opt-outs for ‘Ireland Live’ news updates.

It replaces a block of ‘teleshopping’ and episodes of ‘Loose Women’

UTV managing director Micahel Wilson has been taking to Twitter in recent weeks to tell people the station was listening to feedback and that they were “looking into what we can do”.
