BBC Morning Live, a weekday morning magazine program, has been pulled from the air for several weeks. The show, which is presented by Gethin Jones and various co-hosts, will be replaced by a series of other programs, including repeats of BBC Breakfast and Victoria Derbyshire.

The BBC has not given a reason for the removal of Morning Live, but it is thought to be due to low ratings. The show has been struggling to compete with ITV’s Good Morning Britain and Channel 4’s The Morning.

In a statement, the BBC said: “We are taking Morning Live off the air for a few weeks to give us time to refresh the show and bring it back stronger.”

Gethin Jones, who has presented Morning Live since it launched in 2020, said he was “sad” to see the show go off-air.

“I’ve loved presenting Morning Live, and I’m proud of what we’ve achieved,” he said. “But I understand the BBC’s decision, and I’m excited to see what the future holds for the show.”

The BBC has said that Morning Live will return to the air in early September. In the meantime, viewers can catch repeats of BBC Breakfast and Victoria Derbyshire on BBC One.
