Emmerdale cancelled following news of Queen under medical supervision

Tonight’s episode of Emmerdale has been cancelled following the news that the Queen is under medical supervision.

Today, it was announced by Buckingham Palace that doctors are concerned for the health of Queen Elizabeth II.

Earlier, BBC One paused the usual programming to air a news special which is currently being presented by Clive Myrie, while the 96-year-old monarch remains at her residence at Balmoral.

When the news broke today, BBC One interrupted a show to switch to a presenter in the news studio, who announced to viewers: ‘Welcome to viewers on BBC One. We have had news from Buckingham Palace that the Queen is under medical supervision at Balmoral.

‘The doctors had become concerned for her health and she is now being under the supervision of doctors at Balmoral. It is understood that she is comfortable and that immediate family members have been informed.’

A statement released by the Palace today read: ‘Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision.

‘The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.’

It’s now been confirmed that ITV will follow the BBC and suspend programming from 5pm with an ITV news special airing indefinitely on the channel.

BREAKING: ITV to suspend programming at 5pm with an #ITVNews special airing indefinitely on ITV (News will air for as long as needed – no set time decided), TV Zone understands.

The news coverage will continue for as long as needed, which means tonight’s episode of Emmerdale – which usually airs from 7:30-8:30pm – will be removed from schedules.

Presently, EastEnders is due to air on BBC One, but as changes are happening regularly, it’s likely things will change.
