The show switched to a 30-year-special with Lorraine Kelly and Ben Shephard.

A message appeared on TV screens in the top right-hand corner reading: “Sorry for the interruption to our normal programme we’ll be back to the Lorraine studio as soon as possible.”

ITV said in a statement: “It was an isolated incident which was quickly resolved. The building was evacuated as a precaution.”
