Fans of TV3’s Midday were left disappointed this morning as a technical glitch prevented the programme from airing.

The official Midday twitter confirmed the show would not be broadcast today, tweeting:

“Sorry Folks - due to technical difficulties, Midday won't be on air today. Apologies. Never fear we'll see you on Monday. Have a great wkend.”

Also expressing her disappointment was presenter Elaine Crowley, who shared a photo of the team ready for the show. Make-up and all.

She said: “All dressed up and nowhere to chat!”

TV3 confirmed that technical difficulties were responsible for the show failing to go out, saying that fans could look forward to seeing it back on their screens Monday.

"We had technical difficulties with the cameras that are used for Midday," said Sharon McHugh, Head of Press and Publicity.

"Because it’s Live there wasn’t enough time to fix the situation so it was decided not to air Midday today.

"We’re working across rectifying and should be back to normal for Monday."
