ITV have cancelled a number of shows today following the Manchester terror attack.

Lorraine, which usually airs after Good Morning Britain, was the first show to be cancelled.


This Morning (presented by Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby) was originally due to go ahead, with the show's Twitter account tweeting "we'll be bringing you the latest on the Manchester terror attack - from 10:30".


However, the show tweeted again shortly afterwards saying "We're sorry but we've just been told we're not going on air."


Holly Willoughby has since taken to Instagram, praising the work of the emergency services.

We have such hero's working in our emergency services... Thank you for all you have done and will continue to do... x

ITV News have been tweeting updates throughout the morning.



Loose Women has also been cancelled, with the show tweeting "we will not be on air today".


The official ITV Twitter account confirmed that the news coverage will continue until 2pm.
