“It’s started… #Armageddon”: Brexit claims This Morning and Loose Women as early victims
The Remain campaign said it would be bad. And for some, the effect of Brexit has already led to #Armageddon.
It's been a difficult morning for ITV. As well as experiencing a 19 per cent fall in shares this morning, fans have also hit out at the broadcaster for – dun, dun, dun – cancelling This Morning and Loose Women to dedicate coverage to the referendum.
This Morning broke the news to fan on Twitter. And some didn't take it well.
As Britain has voted to leave the European Union ITV will be replacing @itvthismorning with continuous news coverage of the historic vote.
