Good Morning Britain has been pulled off air amid growing concerns surrounding Covid-19.

TV bosses are said to have made the call yesterday, December 19, as concerns around the GMB team started to grow, but it is reported they have agreed to continue to the end of the week.

Although the show will continue all throughout the week, it will be limited bodies in the studio as part of the rules to keep it as safe as possible in the lead-up to their extended Christmas break.

A spokesperson confirmed to The Sun that the show will be off air after Christmas and will not resume until Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

Although it was confirmed the special GMB Christmas Day show from 7am to 9am will still be going ahead, the episodes due to air from Wednesday, December 29 to Friday, December 31 will not go ahead.

The Monday and Tuesday episodes were not due to air due to the Christmas bank holiday break which the presenters were already due to have off.

The spokesperson said: "Due to the pandemic and to protect our teams, we have decided to give them an extended break.

"GMB will not broadcast next week, but will be back on air on Tuesday, January 4, 2022."

A TV source told the publication that the situation was "unheard of".

They said: "We even aired throughout the height of the pandemic, but lately it is becoming near impossible with staffing shortages and fears about the Christmas period being derailed for everyone."
