CNN may have banned one of US President Donald Trump's top advisors from its programmes.

Bosses at the network reportedly told the New York Times they were considering never interviewing Kellyanne Conway again.

The CNN chief, who was not named in the piece, said the decision may be made because of "serious questions about her credibility".

Since Trump's inauguration, Conway told NBC that press officer Sean Spicer's claim that Trump had the largest-ever inauguration audience by any president wasn't a lie, but 'alternative facts'.

She also hit headlines for her reference to the fictional 'Bowling Green Massacre'.

Now, CNN called the advisor out on Twitter about her lack of appearances on the network over the weekend.

Conway disputed an article saying she was banned from CNN, tweeting; "False. I could do no live Sunday shows this week BC of family. Plus, I was invited onto CNN today & tomorrow. CNN Brass on those emails."

CNN Communications team replied; "@KellyannePolls was offered to SOTU on Sunday by the White House. We passed. Those are the facts."
