Good Morning Britain taken off air as fire breaks out at ITV studios

ITV’s studios have been evacuated due to a fire in the building.

The fire broke out shortly after Good Morning Britain began at 6am and the London Fire Brigade confirmed that the situation is “still ongoing”.

 

A message on the GMB Twitter account read: “We’ve been evacuated because of a fire alarm. Everyone’s safe and we’re hoping to get back in and on air ASAP.”

Guest Holly Brockwell, who was due to speak on GMB, tweeted a picture of smoke pouring out of the window of the studios.

 

Just before 7.30am, she tweeted: “Tonnes of fire engines, fire still blazing.”

Holly reported that the fire was in a production suite.

The London Fire Brigade confirmed they had sent several crews to the studios and said the situation was “still ongoing”.

 

GMB co-host Ben Shephard tweeted that the fire appeared to have been extinguished.

 

He posted: “Five engines and seemingly no more smoke! Not sure if we’ll make it back on air yet but hoping to.”

A pre-recorded version of GMB was aired before an episode of Dinner Date began just after 7.30am.

The fire was extinguished by 8.30am and the cause is being investigated.
