Users have also told the site they are having issues with Channel 4, with a number of viewers complaining E4 is down.

Down Detector tweeted this evening: “User reports indicate Instagram is having problems since 4:48 PM EDT.”

According to the site, more than 1,000 Instagram users had reported outages by 9.43pm.

Another 777 TV viewers said they were struggling to view Channel 4 services tonight.

Down Detector only tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources – including user-submitted errors – on its platform.

The Sun has contacted Instagram and Channel 4 for details.
