The channel pulled a live episode of This Morning during an advert break and cancel following programme Loose Women.

Viewers watching Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby at around 12.15am were left baffled when it returned from a break to instead show a highlights reel of old footage.

A Met Police spokesperson said: ‘At 11:14hrs on Thursday, 10 March, police were called to reports of a security alert at Wood Lane, White City.

‘It was reported a suspicious item had been discovered.

‘The area was evacuated as a precaution and White City and Wood Lane tube stations were temporarily closed.

‘The incident was stood down shortly before 12:49hrs. An investigation is ongoing.’

As crew members returned to the studios, This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield posted on social media saying: ‘Back in my dressing room after a security alert.

‘All ok and a thankfully false alarm. Thank you to our team and the Met Police for being amazing… I’ve been to the pub with everyone, now back to get my house keys.’
