Piers Morgan turns left

In a bizarre property merry-go-round, 350 ITV production staff, largely working on daytime shows, are heading to White City in 2018. Their rental payments, for 27,000 square foot of the Westworks building (formerly the unloved White City 1 - a building John Birt refused to work in) goes not to the BBC, but developers Stanhope.

ITV has also sub-let studio space from BBC Studioworks (Who says there's a paucity of creative ideas in branding ?) at Television Centre, where Good Morning Britain, Lorraine, This Morning and Loose Women will be made. All this while ITV redevelops its South Bank site.

Piers Morgan may be pleased - Television Centre is less than two miles from his family pad in Edwardes Square, W8, halving his early morning journey time.

  1. Just a shame that ITV didn't decide to knock down South Bank Studios earlier - it might have stopped so many fine fit-for-purpose TVC studios from being demolished.
