This Morning Live Show Pulled From ITV With Emergency Footage Aired

Today's edition of This Morning was pulled from the air and emergency footage was shown instead.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were presenting the show live, however, when the show returned from a break, they both appeared in a pre-recorded video, telling viewers that they couldn't be with them live.

Phillip said: "As we can't be live with you today we have lined up some of our best bits for you to enjoy."

Prior to the episode being cut, there had been interviews with Rebel Wilson and Brenda Blethyn.


The emergency footage included an interview with Britain's dullest man, as well as a clip of Phil and Holly enjoying some tree-hugging.

Viewers shared their surprise at seeing the show cut short, asking ITV what had gone on.

Writing on Twitter, one fan said: "@thismorning what happened. Why was the show cut short?"


Echoing the confusion, another chimed in: "Wait what’s happened? #ThisMorning."

A third wrote: "This Morning causing mild panic as it suddenly cuts to 'best bits'."

While another added: "I thought I was having a funny turn just then, they did just played the This Morning titles again at 12:15 and cut to a pre recorded show?"

In a tweet this afternoon, a spokesperson for This Morning said: "We apologise for the break in live programming today. We are currently running pre-recorded content and hope to be back with you soon."


It's not the only show that has been affected, though, with Loose Women also showing a pre-recorded episode.

Nadia Sawalha introduced today's episode, saying: "Welcome to a very special episode of Loose Women.

"We will be taking a look back at the very best of our life before Loose series."


According to the Metropolitan Police, officers were called to reports of a 'suspicious package' close to television studios at White City, with a cordon put in place, which caused the disruption.

The incident has since come to an end, it has been confirmed.

In a tweet, a spokesperson for the Met Police said: "Police dealt with a #SuspiciousPackage reported at 11:44hrs this morning at #WhiteCity.

"The incident was stood down at 12:49hrs. Cordons have now been lifted."


Earlier today, Transport for London said in a tweet: "White City and Wood Lane stations closed: While the police respond to a security alert outside the station."

LADbible has contacted ITV for a comment.

Yesterday (9 March), Holly and Phil became distressed and quickly cut to an ad break after watching footage of a young Ukrainian girl in an air raid shelter singing a song from Frozen.
