'We are right behind Good Morning Britain', says ITV boss

23 August 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

ITV controller Peter Fincham has said that the channel remains "right behind" Good Morning Britain.

The breakfast show launched earlier this year as a replacement for Daybreak. Despite failing to improve on it's predecessor's ratings, Fincham expects the audience figures to improve during the remainder of the year.

"We are right behind it, I think it is fresh, it is different," he said during his 'Meet the Controller' session at the Edinburgh International Television Festival.

"We tried to break the mould with Good Morning Britain. I think it has a good team on screen and working behind the scenes, that hasn't at this moment shown itself with a jump in the audience, but we would expect audiences at breakfast to move quite slowly."

Declining to reveal specific target figures, he added: "We would like it to be a popular offering at breakfast. But I am not expecting an overnight transformation in the ratings. »

19 August 2014 3:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Daniel Radcliffe has confirmed that he is in a relationship.

The Harry Potter and What If? actor told ITV's Good Morning Britain that he tries not to talk about his personal life.

"Yes I am very, very happy with someone, but I'm not... I'm not actually [open about my love life]," Radcliffe said.

"People just make it seem open because people write about it sometimes but it's one of those things that I try not to talk about.

"Then people ask me stuff and I forget what I have to answer and when to stop talking so I'm going to do that one now!"

Earlier, Radcliffe was asked what true love is and told Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard: "Sure, yes - I'm 25 years old, and I know exactly what true love is!

"I don't know... is it not when you're just really, really happy with one person? Is it as simple as that? »

Good Morning Britain's Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard became the latest celebrities to take on the Ice Bucket Challenge, tackling the freezing cold stunt on live breakfast TV this morning.

Reid and Shephard both got drenched after being nominated for the challenge by Good Morning Britain weather presenter Laura Tobin.

After having the icy water poured over them, Reid quickly nominated her co-presenter Sean Fletcher and This Morning's Ruth Langsford to take on the challenge next.

Langsford has agreed to take part in the task alongside her husband Eamonn Holmes, although he may be surprised when he finds out what his wife has signed him up for.

The Ice Bucket Challenge is a craze started in America that is raising money for the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Als) Association.

Justin Bieber and Bill Gates are among the celebrities who have filmed themselves taking part in the challenge. »

Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard are a pair of Muppets

11 August 2014 2:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Good Morning Britain has its supporters and its critics but there's one thing we can now all agree on.

Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard are a pair of Muppets.

To promote the DVD release of Muppets Most Wanted the hosts of ITV's flagship breakfast show were joined today (August 11) on the couch by Henson-esque versions of themselves.

"It's a lovely thing to have a Muppet made of yourself!" said Reid, whose Muppet had a dress matching her own.

She added to Shephard: "There's something quite Kermit like about your Muppet actually." We think that was a compliment.

Reid then quipped about her own: "And there's something a bit Miss Piggy about this one!"

Strictly Len Goodman on BBC loyalty: 'I can't stand defectors to ITV'

17 July 2014 3:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Strictly Come Dancing judge Len Goodman has hit out at stars who leave the BBC for ITV.

The 70-year-old, who joined Strictly when it launched in 2004, explained that he is grateful to the BBC for giving him his television job, The Mirror reports.

Describing himself as "so fortunate" to work on the programme, he admitted that he "can't stand" people who defect to ITV for more money.

"You have to be a bit loyal in this game," he said. "I'd never not do Strictly, it's fantastic. I love it and without the BBC I would have got nothing."

Goodman's comments will raise eyebrows as former Strictly judge Alesha Dixon left the programme to host Britain's Got Talent, while Strictly contestant Susanna Reid defected from the BBC to ITV for a job on Good Morning Britain earlier this year.

Elsewhere, Goodman revealed that he has no plans to leave Strictly Come Dancing »

Good Morning Britain: Is it ever a good morning for adverts?

7 June 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

ITV's breakfast contender is faring even less well than its predecessor. Perhaps it's just too early to watch commercials

The trouble with tabloid fame is that it only builds you up to let you down. So, one year Susanna Reid was the nation's dancing-cum-breakfast-sofa sweetheart; and now, six months later, she's the overpaid Aunt Susie of Good Morning Britain, ITV's blighted successor to Daybreak. Can Susanna and her hyperactive squad oust old Bill up in Salford from his No 1 morning slot? Not if the viewing figures don't even hit Daybreak's level and trail the BBC by growing margins. Goodbye Gmb not immediately, perhaps, but after six months or so of tweaking desks, running orders, hairstyles in vain? There's always the tried and tested C4 option if everything fails: forget news and high-paid presenters, just fill up the cornflakes half-hour with cartoons.

But there is also another dimension to ponder. »

6 June 2014 3:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ben Shephard has said that he is "really proud" of Good Morning Britain.

The presenter co-hosts the ITV breakfast programme, which was this week rumoured to be facing the axe after drawing fewer than 300,000 viewers, though the broadcaster has denied such claims.

"We're loving it. It's a fantastic team," Shephard told Digital Spy ahead of Soccer Aid.

"We're really proud of what we're doing. It's been amazing. I think we've got a great camaraderie amongst us and everyone's really enjoying it. That's the most important thing."

Shephard co-hosts the programme with Susanna Reid, Charlotte Hawkins, Ranvir Singh, Kate Garraway and Sean Fletcher.

Asked about juggling the breakfast show with his Soccer Aid training, Shephard added: "I've been finishing with Susanna and then coming over here and running around.

"There's nothing better than playing football with your mates to keep you bang up for it. »

Good Morning Britain not facing axe, insists ITV

2 June 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

ITV has denied reports that Good Morning Britain may be on the verge of being axed.

The broadcaster stated that it intends to support the new morning show "for the long run".

Good Morning Britain one month on: Is the breakfast show doomed?

The Sun had previously claimed that the Susanna Reid-fronted series was in danger, due to falling ratings that are below its predecessor Daybreak.

An ITV spokesperson has since stated that there is "no plan" to end the show.

"We are in this for the long game," she said. "We are proud of the show, we are trying something new, and different."

The tabloid report quoted an ITV source claiming that it needed to average a 15% audience share, and may be replaced by cartoons if it fails to do so in six months.

Ben Shephard, Charlotte Hawkins and Sean Fletcher also co-host the show, which launched a month ago. »

Strictly Come Dancing: Artem Chigvintsev, James Jordan not returning

1 June 2014 3:38 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Good Morning Britain one month on: Is the breakfast show doomed?

29 May 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Judging a breakfast show on its ratings alone is always dangerous.

Watching breakfast TV is a habit and it has to fit into our busy morning schedules, so a slight change to the format can mean that our 10-minute breakfast break with our corn flakes and the telly suddenly coincides with the weather and we'll probably switch channels or even switch off altogether.

Viewers look for familiarity, comfort and something easily digestible in the mornings. BBC Breakfast has nailed all three of these traits over the last five years and for that reason, ITV has been floundering to match them in the early morning ratings war.

GMTV had grown tired and grey, and Daybreak was an ugly explosion of colour and dreadful decisions. The channel's latest attempt to wrestle back viewers, Good Morning Britain, opened with lukewarm reviews one month ago and the ratings have been dropping ever since.

But are the problems terminal? »

Tom Cruise enjoyed a squeeze from Susanna Reid and a steaming mug of coffee as he kick-started his 24-hour global premiere marathon for Edge of Tomorrow in London this morning.

The 51-year-old actor looked smart in a pinstripe three-piece suit as he arrived at the BFI IMAX in the capital before heading to the next promotional screening in Paris.

He was joined by co-star Emily Blunt, also embarking on the three-city cinematic trip, who looked summery in a strapless, exotic red, pink and blue print Osman dress.

The pair were also being interviewed by Reid - wrapped up in a green mac - for ITV's Good Morning Britain.

Blunt, who recently welcomed her first child with actor husband John Krasinski, joked to reporters: "When I heard about the premiere idea of three in one day I just said, 'That's Tom's idea'."

Broadchurch was the big winner with three awards at UK TV's most glamorous event, and this is how Stuart Heritage saw the action unfold

Anyway, thats that for this evening. Were the winners worthy? Some of them. Do the Baftas change anything? Not really? How weird was it for me to not just look up who won an hour before any of this started? Extremely.

Still, thanks a lot for joining in. You really are the best. If youd like to follow me on Twitter, Im @StuHeritage, but youre not missing out on much if you dont. Thanks everyone.

10.02pm BST

Oh, wait, time for the awards that couldn't fit into the two-hour broadcast. Good news! The Hunt for Britain's Sex Gangs didn't win! I didn't need to think of a joke about it! Hooray!
