Good Morning Britain taken off air as fire forces studio evacuation

ITV replaced the live show with pre-recorded material after a fire broke out at its London headquarters.

ITV BREAKFAST SHOW Good Morning Britain was forced off air this morning after a fire broke out at the broadcaster’s London studios.

London Fire Brigade said around 50 people were safely evacuated from the building after the blaze damaged part of a post room on the first floor.

Four fire engines were called to the scene just before 7am and the fire was extinguished by 8.45am.

The live show was replaced by pre-recorded material, including a rerun of cooking programme Dinner Date – a change that left some viewers confused.

Presenter Kate Garraway and Ranvir Singh later took time to meet some of the firefighters at the scene.

The cause of the blaze has not yet been established, London Fire Brigade said.
