Emily Maitlis: Newsnight host breaks silence on her BBC show replacement after controversy 1

“While we believe the programme contained fair, reasonable and rigorous journalism, we feel that we should have done more to make clear the introduction was a summary of the questions we would examine, with all the accompanying evidence, in the rest of the programme,” they continued.

“As it was, we believe the introduction we broadcast did not meet our standards of due impartiality.”

Many friends and fans of the presenter swiftly flocked to social media to share their thoughts about the situation, including Good Morning Britain hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

She has since thanked her fans for their support on Twitter, writing: “Been overwhelmed by all the kindness, messages – and support on here – and I’ve probably missed much of it.

“A big thank you from us all at #newsnight.”
