Yeah, Friday's Lorraine is recorded the day before

I suppose it depends where the recording is. If they were expecting to play it from the South Bank then it could be more filler

The regions have recorded bulletins and uploaded them to the ITV News website.

If Lorraine is going to be a live play out from London , then it'll likely be dropped in favour of another ITV Daytime show

Lorraine is recorded on Fridays as already mentioned.

Putting Lorraine on earlier would mess things up for people tuning in specifically at half 8 for the show, so isn't really an option. ITV's done pretty much all it can here really.

Ideally there should be a way for the regions to get on air should something like this happen. As I recall the regions used to handle GMTV playout (indeed, that's what got UTV in trouble back in the day when they broke in for some breaking news one morning). I'm guessing it wouldn't be simple for English and Welsh regions, though STV and UTV on that basis would be able to take control. However, with ITV in control of the franchise they wouldn't be able to without permission, and crashing in and out of a recorded programme/some adverts would look untidy/cost money.

It's such a rarity I'm guessing it's not really seen as a major issue, to be fair.

Looks like GMB won't be on air.

I would still drop Lorraine and show GMB.

Considering GMB finishes in 15 mins, it's not exactly a revelation.

Nobody would expect GMB at 8:30, nobody is waiting for it, it's been and gone. Would you expect it at 10am or at lunchtime?

There's presumably nothing to stop them (ITV) inserting a regional news bulletin whenever they want during the standby programmes. I'd have thought it's no different to any other news bulletin, albeit cued from Chiswick rather than the studio.


All it would take is someone to organise it and get playout and the regions to agree a time. Though when the person who would organise/approve that is out in the pavement or at home I imagine it's difficult

Straight to Lorraine. No GMB

Oooh Lorraine's on but the clocks blank. They've just removed it.

Lorraine on now, without a clock. Started with an empty yellow circle and the logo, but the graphics have disappeared completely now.
