A fan-favorite BBC daytime show has been taken off screens for weeks due to a shocking TV schedule shake-up.
Those at home yesterday tuned in to the flagship station hoping to catch her beloved breakfast show, hosted by Welsh presenter Gethin Jones – but she wasn’t there.
The show usually airs weekdays at 9:15am on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
But a sudden programming change saw Morning Live axed to make way for Rip Off Britain, a new consumer series.
Gloria Hunniford, Julia Somerville and Angela Rippon will host the new show, which will air over the following three weeks.
Gethin announced the news at the end of the latest episode of Morning Live, telling viewers they were “taking a break.”
The Welsh presenter said: “That’s all we have time for. We’re taking a little break, the Rip Off Britain ladies will be back from Monday at 9:15am.”
He continued, “See you in about three weeks, bye.”
This unexpected change to the television schedule left BBC viewers scratching their heads.
Luckily, Morning Live’s official social media account then announced the exact date the famous breakfast show will return.
They wrote to their followers: “Morning Live is taking a break until Monday October 23rd.”
This isn’t the first time the series has been shaken up – in September Gethin disappeared from the red sofa.
After spending a long weekend attending a friend’s wedding in France, Gethin Jones was away from the BBC studio because he was attending an even more exciting event.
