Twitter users have blasted Jeremy Kyle fans for complaining after the chatshow is cancelled in favour of Brussels terror attacks news coverage.

The show was cancelled on Tuesday morning and Good Morning Britain was extended so that updates of the tragedy unfolding in Belgium could continue.

Its usual 9.25am slot was taken over with Good Morning Britain coverage as hosts Piers Morgan and Susannah Reid reported on the Brussels terror attacks as they happened.

However, some fans of the Jeremy Kyle Show were not pleased and took to social media to complain.

"Like I care n stuff but I would rather be watching Jeremy Kyle ," said one fan, while another complained: "Right, that's it! I'm completely fed up with ITV. They've only gone and replaced Jeremy Kyle with the news."

Another added: "I'm sick of the news it's just negative negative and negative. We want a laugh #JeremyKyle"

Many Twitter users were shocked by the reactions to the show's cancellation, branding them as "insensitive" and called for more "respect".

It's thought that at least 34 people are dead after bombs exploded at Brussels airport and in the city's subway system on Tuesday morning.

Belgium remains on its highest threat level after yesterday's terror attacks.
