News At Ten to move temporarily for ITV entertainment show

ITV’s News At Ten could be shifted half an hour later to accommodate a new entertainment show.

The broadcaster is planning to bring out an entertainment show, with rotating presenters, next year.

The news, hosted by Tom Bradby, could be shifted temporarily to 10.30pm to make way for the programme.

ITV says it has no plans to move the news permanently.

News At Ten has been moved occasionally for sporting events, as well as I’m A Celebrity! and documentaries such as the recent programme The Murder Of Sadie Hartley.

An ITV spokesman said: “We are looking at an entertainment show for the new year, more details will be confirmed in due course, including scheduling.

“There are occasions when the main bulletin moves for big entertainment event programming or sport. However, we have no plans to permanently move the news from the 10pm slot.”

The Daily Mirror described the entertainment show as “Saturday Night Takeaway meets James Corden’s Late, Late Show”.
