Where is Morning Live filmed? Viewers are wondering after the daytime show was taken off air so that it could move studios recently.

The popular show which rivals ITV's Lorraine Kelly (opens in new tab), airing from 9.15am - 10am,  has been running since 30th October 2020 - but has been made permanent after their family of experts for conversation, advice and great company to make your morning was a hit with viewers.

The show was recently off air for three weeks to enable the studio move  and now it's back viewers are wondering where it's filmed as we reveal all you need to know...

Where is Morning Live filmed?

Morning Live is now filmed in Salford, Manchester in a 10th floor set on the site of the former Granada Studios where Coronation Street (opens in new tab) used to be filmed.

The show moved to its new studios on Monday as part of the BBC's 'Across the UK' drive to create more programmes outside London. These plans follow consistently slot-winning figures for the programme since it returned to BBC One for a second series in late January.

Its best performing episode for the series was on 8th Feb when it achieved 1.8m, and the weekly average consolidated figures are 1.5m – consistently the highest in its slot. This is an increase on the 1.4m figure for the first run which aired from October to December 2020.

Hannah Wyatt, Managing Director, Factual Entertainment and Events, BBC Studios Productions said at the time, “The efforts needed to build such a large and incredibly loyal audience with a new live daily show in such a competitive slot should not be underestimated. The all year round commission is a richly deserved reward for what the Morning Live production and presenting team have achieved in a fraction of the time it would take other shows to do.”
