The blaze prompted an evacuation of the TV studios and the show was forced to come off air just as it was scheduled to start.

50 people, including the show’s famous faces, had to leave the building in central London just before 7am while emergency services rushed to the scene.

Luckily, no one was injured and presenter Ben Shepherd has already taken to Twitter to reassure fans of the show that everyone is fine.

He even joked that his co-stars Kate Garraway and Ranvir Singh are acting as if they were “on a hen do” as they chat to the fire crews in the street outside.

“Think @kategarraway and @ranvir01 think they’re on a hen do! @GMB,” he said.

In another video, shot in a nearby cafe, Ben added: “So we have retired in a nearby cafe on the river. This gentleman here has opened up especially for us to give us some coffee and some breakfast.”

A spokesman for London Fire Brigade said: “Part of a post room on the first floor was damaged by fire. Around 50 people evacuated the building before the brigade arrived.

"The fire meant that Good Morning Britain was taken off air. The brigade was called at 6.57am. Fire crews from Lambeth, Dowgate and Soho fire stations were at the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation.”
