ITV has dropped tonight's episode of The Nightly Show following today's devastating attack in London.

At least four people have died and a further 20 have been injured in a terrorist attack in Westminster.

Naturally the events have superseded regularly scheduled programming with ITV dropping Tipping Point, The Chase earlier this afternoon as well as tonight's latest edition of The Nightly Show.

The channel said in a statement earlier today as events unfolded: "Tipping Point is going to be replaced by ITV News at 4pm for an hour.

"There may be further changes but we'll update as and when."

Instead, ITV will be airing rolling news coverage following the days tragic events.

Host Dermot O'Leary was due in charge for this evening's episode and is expected to return tomorrow (Thursday) as usual with scheduled hosts Ant and Dec.

Meanwhile, over on BBC One, Pointless has moved to BBC Two, replacing Bargain Hunt, in order to provide further news coverage.

While pretty much every normal person understood the changes, they have angered a few despite what has happened.

One Twitter user remarked: "Those complaining about #thechase being cancelled, grow up and have some respect given the dreadful circumstances of today's events."
