The series – which stars Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar as DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunny Khan respectively – launched in 2015 and has earned a loyal following over the past few years.

However, those hoping to get their weekly fix will have to wait because the show has been bumped from the ITV schedule for tonight (March 8).

ITV bagged the UK rights to the two-hour chat – which premiered last night on CBS in the US – and it’s going to air from 9pm until 10.50pm.

Speaking about Oprah With Meghan and Harry, Kevin Lygo – ITV’s Managing Director Media & Entertainment – commented: ‘This interview is already a national talking point and ITV is pleased to be able to offer UK audiences the opportunity to see it.’
